Mein Auto: 1999 E36 M3 Convertible
New to the ///M crowd...

So I have had several BMW's in the past, however I just got ahold of my first true M car last Wednesday. It's a 1999 M3 convertible. It needs some interior work, but nothing major. The biggest knock I have on the interior is the steering wheel needs to be re-upholstered as well as the rear head rests. Other than that she's good to go. Here are some pics...
(I know my garage is a mess, I just moved to a new house, haha)

Very nice. Quite rare to have white on grey. Keep it clean! It looks gorgeous.


Is it equipped with an automatic or manual transmission?

Post in the non-m E36 forum.

Very nice ride, congrats! There were 61 made in that color combo which is the most popular combo of all the white manual convertibles produced.

AW/Grey = 61
AW/Black = 37
AW/Sand = 27
AW/Maulberry = 11
AW/Modena = 2

I recently ordered a new 3 spoke wheel from BMW... couldn't stand the smoothing of leather anymore. Can't wait for it to arrive!

Nice right. Just became an AW (on black) M3 vert owner myself. I notice it turns so much more heads than my Cosmos black (328i) vert.
