FWIW, note that you can NOT import this car to Canada. 1995 M3s are specifically exempt (don't know why, think it has something to do with the bumpers)

The '95 M3 was exempt in '08 when I was looking so they must have changed the rule. I believe it was exempt because the suspension systems needed to be modified to meet headlight height requirements which is kind of silly anyway.

you can pick up euro spec'd 94's from places in BC for about 10-11k.
but then you have to get it back to toronto area. its tempting

but at the end of the day these cars are still old. i dunno. im in the market for an e36 right now and have gone back and forth wtih myself in getting a euro spec car.
but to me they are growing a little to old for a daily. imo. the engine is a little more high strung than the north american version and will likely cost more to upkeep.
i would enjoy it but for a daily driver(for me) i think the north american version will be better.
some bolt ons and a tune with greatly reduce the power difference. and thats really the only difference. and the fact you can have some people bukake all over you cause its euro powered

plus you can get a north american version up to 99. (which is still old too these days)

as for what the euro spec cars are worth. they are waht people will pay and most people wont pay 20-30k for a car of that age anymore. the numbers (built)are to high. its not an e30.
its the same with people asking 17k-20k for north american e36 m'3s these days. sorry you missed the boat. those days are gone.


that ltw is sweeeeeeeeeeeet.

I'm about to pull the trigger on a euro from bc. For the mileage, their cheaper than a us spec over hear, and jap cars are very clean. We get japan engines at my work(honda dealer) some times. They are very clean. no rust. We'll see.

Just a quick note - I believe the 1994 Canadian M3 (often called the euro-spec) is the rarest BMW ever built. Rarer than the LTW or the e30 M3.
