whoa.. back in 2002 mkgino was a different person.

anyway, to my understanding (and I can be totally wrong on this)... M3 is from/for an actual M3. M-Technic is basically M body parts designed for non M3 cars.

i.e. if you bought moulding from the dealer for your 325.. you'd be ordering M-Technic mouldings...

Mmmmmmmm not exactly, back in the E30 days mtech parts were different from m3's entirly. I'm sure the e30 guys will chime in soon.

Mtechnic from what I understand is/was a factory option like the mtech I and mtech II cars which was like upgrading with a sport package. There were not too many originals.

Here is a genuine M-Technic II cabrio, notice it's very differnt from an m3



You can still buy M-Technic kits but they have to be shipped from Europe(IIRC)

Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong!

M-Technic are parts designed by BMW M GmbH.

They come on M cars and non-m cars.

There was actually an e36 325is M-Technic, a 150 in 94 I believe.

It was basically a full M3, minus the engine. And the M50B25 engine was handpicked. It had the M3 chassis, brakes, suspension, etc....

I've seen them sell for more then a 95-97 M3, just because of their rarity, and because they're legal to race in certain classes where they have an advantage because they're stock.

ummmm no way.
Ive seen one for sale on DTM about 2 years ago, guy was asking more than regular 325is but nowhere near e36 m3 price.

you sure it has all the m goodies except the engine?
From what I heard its only bumpers

If it is why would anyone pay for it more than m3 if its same thing as M3 minus the main part - the engine.
Its a no collector car and its still has WBA VIN.
