If it's actually an M3 why does it have regular coupe kick panels instead of the M3 twisties?

It's still a nice clean car but I think it's a 325 or 328 coupe dressed up with M3 bumper covers, rub strips and an M3 badge.

And I'll bet it's an auto tranny also......

Not trying to rain on your parade, just being straight. If the interior is in good shape it's still a good buy for $3,600.

Don't forget that the Lux package got normal skirts instead of Twisties. I think it also came with the Contours, so that makes sense.

Nice pick up on the M3...whats broke in the seats? I have a spare power seat laying around with motors in them. The seat is garbage but believe the motors are good.
Looks good with the new paint Dirty!

Yep, the Lux package M3s had non-twisty rocker trim and Contours, whereas the sport package M3s came with twisty rocker trim and DSIIs.

word of advise to you. (everyone as a matter of fact)

if it snows near you and the area uses salt:

wash your car, make sure the under carriage is clean then, spray your undercarriage with something as a rust preventative.

and of course always wash your car if you drove through salty roads

Same as before except an inch lower in the front. My dad's camera broke so I don't have anything to take good pictures with.
