          Wow.
          Thats a grail car for me. I've always loved the Evo 2s more than any other. That one had my favorite color combo.

          Any of the UK guys remember what a new E2 was selling for in new?

            On the road they were 27381 in 1988.

            This particular car has options which took it to about 31000. So not a great return on an original investment of that amount of money 25 years ago, especially considering the owner(s) have hardly had chance to enjoy driving the thing.

            Agree with you on the colour Jimmy, as soon as I saw it I had to have one!

              I'm a sucker for shiny red cars...
              Yes, I agree, the sad part is that they really didnt get to drive it very much.
              I can appreciate the preservation of such a rare car, but thats leaving some of the joy of ownership on the table.
              I dont drive my garage queen very much, maybe about 1000 miles per year on sunny days, but even at that I enjoy it.

              Rob, are you the original owner of yours?

                No there were 4 owners before me, all Belgian but the car was registered in Germany.

                Red Evo 2's are quite rare so I bought the first one I could afford, it was pretty tidy but the bodywork needed attention so she's in the shop now having the works.

                Good thing is with 210,000kms on the clock I'm not scared of using the car as a daily when the weather suits.

                  It says in that report that there were only 51 UK Evo II's Regestered new in the UK. That's good news for me because I have one. but is that number correct?

                    Nicr car, very low mileage. I believe 51 Evo2's , 38 Sport Evolution's and a total of no more than 300 cars of all variants of M3 sold here in the UK during the 3-4 year production run, so not many people have driven let alone own a M3 here in the UK, people did not understand what a legend the left hand drive only M3 was, and favoured the right hand drive 325i sports 6 cylinder engine over the mean ruff and gruff M3 4 cylinder engine, being the Uk people didn't like the fact of LHD only, but genuine enthusiasts knew there was no comparison with the Ultimate Driving Machine

                        Just noticed this post - own the car and very happy to have bought it back in 2013. Is number 264/500 and still smells new when you open the door. Mileage now 4900... Is so perfect it is a problem - what do you do with it??!!

                        Gets better, "found" 263/500 in Australia - all a little untidy and converted to rhd but bought that and about to get it back on the road after partial restoration. Big advantage is that it will get driven on a regular basis...
