I can't figure out which model forum to go to. I have a 1991 M-Technic and I can't see where it falls under any model category. Can someone help me?

E30 to be a tad more specific. Clean looking car :thumbup: Welcome to the 'fest

Thnaks for the reply. Like I said new at the BMW thing and trying to figure out what exactly I have as.

So the M-Technic is the same as a E30 or just the body style or a special version of it?

As far as I understand its just a body kit on the car.

I purchased this car because it was #5/250 built in 1991. It has M-Technic on the door and all leather inside with pink/blue strips in the seats and door panels. Has different rims than stock and appears to have a lower ride than stock and a straight 6 engine.

Having a hard time finding specific info on the M-Technic but read that is was a special built car and not just a 325 with a body kit. Am I wrong?

Its a standard e30 with an Mtech II body kit, different interior options, etc.. Nice looking car, pop over to the e30 section, introduce yourself and post a lot of pics :thumbup:

US spec 91 BMW M Technic's (not white/black appearance packages) came in brilliant rot, sterling silver and macao blau only. The 771 m tech package includes m tech2 bodykit, 15" BBS wheels, m technic suspension, shadowline, m tech door sills, leather door cards, pulls and map pockets, leather center consoles, handbrake and ashtray, leather trunklid liner, M technic cloth centers, LSD, front/rear M Technic badges. The leather trimmed items are trimmed by hand and feature the autograph of the worker who did the work behind the center console. These items may seem trivial but they are very rare items especially here in the US and most are NLA or soon will be. It is at heart, still a 325iC albeit with a rare special package.

check out e30ic.com and r3vlimited.com

So you really have an E30 325iC. But with the limited edition M package. That is a special car! :thumbup:

Unfortunately, the BBS wheels have been replaced by ordinary style 10 wheels.

Would love to see more photos!

Bought the car a couple weeks ago so still trying to figure out what I have.

It is Macao Blau and has all the features that reelizmpro listed below.

It has a inline 6 engine and 5 speed manual tranny.

The drivers seat has 2 small rips in the cloth :( otherwisw all the seats appear in good shape.

I assume it's not possible to replace the cloth with the OEM material.

There are some guys on R3Vlimited that sell M cloth, if its not OEM its either as as good as, or very close to OEM.
