The best selling M car: The first gen BMW M3



The best-selling BMW M model is the E30 M3. This was the first generation M3 and it's a legend, influencing all following M3 generations. BMW insiders give a look behind the scenes of the development of this powerful sports car. Besides the series model, the limited edition "BMW M3 Sport Evolution" promises even more power. Moreover the BMW M3 was the most successful Touring car ever.

This is spooky, posts seem to disappear and reappear from this thread. There were two replies before this one.

Anyway, if my response comes back, here's where I got my information: http://www.bmwmregistry.com/faq.php

It says that there were 18,843 E30 M3's produced, and 85,766 E46 M3's produced. You can't put anything on the Internet that isn't true. I'm a French model. Uhhh, bon jour!

I now realize that I really screwed up selling my E46 M3.

Adding up the numbers from my link above, E36 M3 production total was 68,402, less than the 85,766 total for the E46 M3.

Sorry was going off memory but the e30 M3 was not a good seller and was sold at a loss by most dealers. Granted now might be a different had we known the future.
