The RIAC National Classic Car Show, 9 – 10 February · e30 meet? ***E30s & Coffee*** Spring/Summer Meets. The BMW M3 is a high-performance version of the 3 Series, developed by BMW's in-house Based on the model year E30 3 Series, the M3 was only available in coupe and convertible body styles. The DTM Champion Edition was produced from February , in a limited number of 54 cars, the same number as.
There was also an M3 Anniversary Edition only produced in for Australia. This was the final year of production for the E36, with only 50 coupes and 70 convertibles being made. Furthermore, "BMW Individual" were able to custom design an M3 with specific coloured leather, woodgrain and other personalized options including polished magnesium alloy wheels from the Anniversary edition.
Convertibles lacked the sports seats found in the coupe but retained every other feature. M3 Euro-Spec Canadian Edition [ edit ] In agreements existed between Canada and several countries in Europe which allowed any car authorized in one participating country to legally be sold in any of the others.
Unlike the other special versions of the E36 M3, buyers were free to choose any colours and options they wanted on their cars. They were initially delivered to Torontothen shipped all across the country to the dealerships where they were ordered.
Canada would not see another E36 M3 for sale until two years later, when BMW finally made the American versions of the M3 available for sale. Forty five Euro-Spec Canadian Edition cars were built, each one having a numbered engraved plaque in both the glovebox and the custom leather case which holds the owners manuals. Only the Australian M3-R was built in lower numbers.

M3 Lightweight E36 [ edit ] An M3 Lightweight, with the characteristic checkered flag motif on the bonnet and wing corner Beginning with the first E36 M3s delivered, BMW racers began pressuring BMW for a homologation version with which to compete against Porsche s in sports-car racing.
A homologation version is a car with special modifications from the factory that are allowed in racing as "production" cars, if enough cars are made and sold. The major changes to the car were to lower the weight for racing. The cars came without a radio although the speakers were installed and the car pre-wired for the radioair conditioning, leather seats, tool kit, or a sunroof.
The doors have aluminum skins. There is no underbonnet insulation blanket and the trunk only has carpet on the floor. The under body insulation is thinner and there is special carpeting to lower weight.

The engines were specially selected from the assembly line for the highest power. The ECU had the top speed limiter removed.
The cars also came with a 3. The cars were fitted with the shorter springs from the European M3 and used the same shocks as the standard M3, verified by having the same part number. Cosmetically the M3 Lightweight came only in Alpine White with the Motorsports flag decals on the left front and right rear corners of the car.
There is an aggressive wing on the trunk lid. There was some carbon fibre interior trim and the badges side molding and dash say "BMW Motorsports International.

Each new owner was given a 1-page legal document to sign stating that any installation of trunk items voided the new car warranty. However, enthusiasts now believe that approximately were built, with some sold to the public.
Chassis work included extensive weight reduction, cushioned bash-bars, a rear-mounted cooling system, custom suspension tuning, mil-spec WireCare wiring, and a full Marcus Fry Racing rollcage that integrated with the chassis for safety and rigidity. Exterior dimensions were enhanced by DTM Fiberwerkz bumpers and imported fiberglass fender flares by Viktor Martensson and Johan Rebew, metal fab by KoogleWerkz, and under its hood was an S54 engine from an E46 M3, supercharged and mated to a Samsonas sequential gearbox.
With around ponies on tap, lots of rubber, and a top-of-the-line tuned version of one of the most proven if still underrated chassis for drifting, it seemed our hero was ready to make his mark in the drifting universe.
Cue the scene where the starship Enterprise crash lands into that pristine alien landscape. It was the practice session at FD Pro 2's second round in Seattle, and Don and the E30 were just warming up, halfway into a run, when: He swapped some usable parts from the car over to his retired, pro-am-winning E30 in an effort to stay in '15 contention.
But then an axle failed and couldn't be replaced just days before the season's penultimate round in Texas, which in turn made Don ineligible to qualify for the final round competition at Irwindale.

I couldn't participate, but I still really wanted to be there. And that's where Don was looking on that lonely night. The front of the E30 was trashed, but the rest seemed relatively unaffected from the firewall back. When a friend mentioned wanting to scrap an E30 that was totaled with rear-end damage, Don got a wild idea.
After a call to Redwood Autobody in the fall of '15, the two cars were cut and Don's E30 received an all-new front clip, on which to mount his triumphant return.
Together with crew chief Kyle Boardman, Don moved the rebuild of his E30 under his own Red Baron Racing roof, built a new engine enhanced by a Precision turbocharger, switched from his previous budget suspension to baller JRZ three-way dampers and custom springs, and tested, troubleshot, and tuned much more extensively.
He qualified for the first round of '16 Pro 2 competition at Orlando without incident but suffered a transmission failure against his Top 16 tandem with Austin Meeks. Don once again survived qualifying, and this time was eliminated by Dirk Stratton in Top
