  • 1988 M3 Red - Evo II spec

    Colleagues,


    Please find below picutres of the 1988 M3 I just purchased 6 weeks ago. This car has 73k km (46K miles) and is all original (except the carpet: which was substituted by a BMW original one in a different color due to lack of availability) and had its engine converted to Evo II spec (pistons, cams, etc...). One of this car's stablemate is a 1991 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5 16V. Both of these cars were direct DTM competitors during the second half of the eighties.






























    Regards,

    That is a very nice looking car and congratulations on your purchase. One question though: It looks like the car is missing the front airdam and possibly the small wedge spoiler out back?

        Nice and only such kms on the clock! I wonder what's the VIN on this one and for what market was originally build?

        That car looks like a US specs (side marker, orange strut tower sticker from BMW, viscous fan, english OBC, ellipsoids not euro smieys, etc) , yet has metric cluster like most euro or ROW M3's and that fuel gauge layout is US specs or even UK I think but not euro type from what I know-think.

        I have/had a US M3 and two euro/lating region M3's and that car you have shows a mix of the things that euro has as well the US but not all mixed up like this one..

            Beautiful car! I also have the two fierce competitors in Schwartz, hoping to pick up a UrQuattro soon to complete the set.
            Rich!

              Ur Quattro was WRC, not WTCC, yeah?

                Gentlemen,

                While I originally had similar thoughts, the OP says that the motor is Evo II spec; not the car. I don't think he's saying it's an Evo II. I'm sure he'll give us some clarification though.

                  Colleagues,

                  I apologize if my post was not clear. This car is a standard US spec 1988 M3 that was originally imported new to South America in the late eighties. As down here we drive in KPH (vs MPH), the speedometer was converted at that time to KPH. The previous owner decided to upgrade his engine and wheels to Evo spec and ordered all the parts (have the invoice with parts and numbers) from overseas. Sorry if I was not clear.

                  Regarding the seat belt warning, thank you and will look into this.

                  Finally, as I am new to the M3 e30 world, all comments and recommendations are welcome.

                  Best regards,
                  Slfan

                      Very nice!
                      + 1 on a pic of your M3 with the stablemate.

                      Congrats on what looks to be a wonderful car.
                      Enjoy.

                        Gentlemen,

                        I still do not have pictures of both cars together. However, as soon as I get back from a business trip I will take some side-by-side pictures and post them here.

                        Best regards to all,

                              DiegoM6,

                              I am located in SP, Brazil. Congratulations on the E30 M3 "stable" you have. The cars and work you have done on them is amazing. Question: do both of your Euro 87 M3s have the dog-leg transmission? Was unable to find one in that configuration over here....

                              Regarding the wheels, these are 16".

                              Hardtailer,

                              By looking at the picture, how can you tell that the wheels are 16"? Are there any tell-tale signs? As I am new to the M3 e30 world, all advise is welcome.

                              Regards,
                              Slfan
