Yes, the suspension on the 95 is different, and will not pass Canadian insurance BS, so they make you put on 96+ suspension, which raises the car about 1/2". It's absolute BS, but that is the law. Avoide the hassle, and go with a 96+. This ONLY applies to the M3 ... the other e36s are all fine (92-99).
btw, the 95 M3 also has the ZF tranny
The "red tape" is non existant for a 96+ (I just brought mine in 2 weeks ago). I also got a 95 last year, so I know all about the suspension changes. FOrtunately, my 95 is a track car, so I didn't bother getting it street legal in Canada.
