A rare modern classic BMW.
In late 1993/early 1994 BMW Motorsports, in an effort to gauge the demand for its new E36 based M3 in the US, produced 150 highly modified 325is BMWs. Modifications included: M3 front spoiler, M3 Sport side skirts, M3 rear valence, M3 Mirrors, Motorsport door handles, and all were painted with BMW Alpine White III. Inside, the Motorsport Tri-Color Hurricane scheme suede and cloth seats and interior panels were accompanied with the M stiched steering wheel, M logo shift knob, the OBC, heated seats, and 200 watt premium sound system. Other Motorsport tweaks included 17" 2 piece BBS Motorsport wheels, and a limited slip differential. Some models optionally included the M3 rear spoiler and stainless steel exhaust tips. The end result was a car that looked just like the 1995 M3 that was eventually released, yet lacked the larger Motorsport 3.2L powerplant.
this particular M-Technic:
I purchased this car from its second owner in June of 2002 with 76,500 miles on it, t currently has about 101k miles. It has been garaged-kept ever since, and with the exception of the first winter, mostly only driven in good weather. It has been an "extra" car for our household since August, 2003. This is quite possibly one of the niced E36 cars you'll find. It has all the great handling and looks of the M3 with 325is insurance costs and maintenance (M3-specific parts are typically 3-5 time more money than those for the "common" 325is).
This car has a 5 speed manual transmission (I thought all the M-technics did, but someone asked).
The car is in excellent condition inside and out. The paint is in excellent condition. Everything works as it should, including the Air Conditioning and cruise control. All exterior light lenses, including fog lights are in good condition w/o cracks or pitting. The cars has the original 17" 2-piece BBS wheels, which are straight, but the clear-coat is failing on the rims. The wheels still look decent, but should be refinished if you wish to make this a show car.
This car is very well maintained and needs nothing. It has had yearly Mobile-one oil changes (yearly due to the low miles it gets driven), and bi-annual coolant and brake fluid changes. The differential lube was changed in 2001 by the previous owner (who I know personallly), and the transmission lube was changed to synthetic by me around 2004. The tires (Sumitomo HTRII) have at least 3/4 tread depth.
This car has the following options (I don't know what was optional, so I'm listing things that might have been standard):
Because of the rarity of this model, I have kept in original condition, with the exception of a few upgrades (I have most of the original parts):
