    Just picked this up. 99 e36 M3 race car. I'm going to use it to race in BMW CCA for a well known BMW tuner. Stay tuned here as things progress over the next few months :big grin:

    I actually haven't driven it yet. It is being drop shipped directly from the seller to my tuner to get it ready for the race season. From what I understand, what the e36 lacks in power it makes up in better handling to the e46.

    I have the same car. You will love it for track events. Even with out the power you will be keeping up and even passing much faster cars after a few events with it.

    I imagine its still pretty fast with those racing tires and being stripped out.

    :love: e36 M3s are my biggest "rivalry" at DEs, when you get a decent driver in one of those (who isn't much better or worse) than I am it's always fun cause our cars matched so evenly (zhp).

    Nothing new to report until mid Dec. That is when I will be meeting the car at the shop in LA and going over what we will do to get it further ready for 2006.
