Came across this ad today:

http://belleville.kijiji.ca/c-cars-vehicles-cars-trucks-1994-BMW-M3-Sedan-Rare-EURO-Spec-1-of-868-built-W0QQAdIdZ227067049

Wondering if it's a legit find? Would this be the same car as the '94 Canadian Euro-spec minus the badging?

It looks legit based on the price and the details in the ad
The car also looks like it has eyebrows on it which are not listed in the ad, not a big deal.

negative. M3 sedan came out in 97.

edit: its LHD. These were produced as 96 models starting 11/95.

The code for them is cD91.

Assuming this is one of those cars (probably is), there's some problems, including the contours (not available till later, should have LTW's), it has the late style grille (accident?). Crank windows ftw.

The interior, motor and colour checks out though. strange.

"The E36 M3 debuted in February, 1992 and hit the dealers' showrooms in November that year; it was the first M3 powered by a six-cylinder engine, displacing 2990 cc and developing 286 PS (210 kW; 282 hp). Initially available as a coupé only, BMW introduced M3 convertible/cabriolet and saloon/sedan versions in 1994, the absence of any M5 models in the BMW line-up between the end of e34 M5 production in 1995 and the launch of the e39 M5 in 1998 prompting the introduction of the four door Motorsport model."

Limousine (E36/4): 1990–1998
Coupé (E36/2): 1992–1999
Cabrio (E36/2C): 1993–1999
Compact (E36/5): 1993–2000

Well what does he know? It's obvious he hasn't heard of the e36 m3 with s50b30 motor which came out in 1994. 45 of those cars came to Canada that year.

Just contact the seller and ask for a picture of the numbered plaque on the inside of the glovebox

I'm not sure if the models sold in Europe had that plaque. This is not a Canadian car.

car is from Germany(ie: not 1 of the 45)


The entire suspension was replaced about 15000 kms ago. Cooling system? No rad replacment yet of that is what you mean. VIN is WBSCB91090EW20142 This a a real rare car. Probably 1 of 1 in Canada/USA. All body panels are original. The paint was completely stripped down and re-painted by a BMW dealer in Germany about 6 months ago. I brought this car with me from Germany to Canada this Spring. It has all new BMW brakes, BMW suspension, new tires all around, new power window motors. It has been maintained since new by only BMW dealer according to the BMW recommended maintenance schedule. There is NOT A THING WRONG with the car. You will not be disappointed!

im curious as to why you would bring this car here in the spring...and then turn around and sell it?

Because he better sell it before it's only of interest to a collector. There are other BMW's I'd buy before I bought that one. When it needs a motor rebuild, it won't be cheap. And it's still 18 year old technology. So unless a Euro s50b30 is what must turn your crank, you can get an e46 with S54 for a bit more and if the motor blows, it's no big deal.

lol true.

he is in the military. He has owned the car since 07 and then brought it back with him when he came back in the spring.
I just asked about an accident.

This is my car. Why ask each other if it is legit, just ask me. Decode the last seven of the VIN "EW20142" at http://www.e34.de/vin/

It's legit and it's a nice car. The price - based on its condition and rarity - I can't verify this but I think it may be the only 1994 EURO Spec M3 Sedan in Canada.

Steve,

there were 45 of those cars imported to Canada iin 1994. Others have been imported from Japan. It's a nice car, but only of interest to certain people. Most that were imported were 2 door.
But good luck with the sale!

There were 45 imported by BMW Canada. And they were ALL coupes.
Nobody knows how many imported ones there are on the roads now, because there is no tracking private imports, like the car in question. The ones imported by BMW Canada have probably a bit of extra value, because they are "official" and have the number plaques, which the private imports of course do not have. Sedans of 94 vintage would certainly be very rare.
