Garage List
Cool Back to its roots - the BMW M3

There is no doubt that I am very blessed. I have a great career and it also allows me to do some things with cars that I used to only dream about. A little over 10 years ago I was a 3rd year dental student thinking about when to start a family. My biggest issue was that I was going to have to sell my 1991 300ZX Twin Turbo in favor for something with a back seat. There was no doubt that my first choice was an E36 M3 sedan. It didn’t take long and I was a proud owner. It just so happened that the E46 M3 was about to come out and at the time it was my total dream car, but just too far out of reach. The E36 just fit the bill for me. In a few years I completed my graduate training and began practicing orthodontics. This opened up the opportunity to buy an E46 M3 and leave my E36 for garage queen status…..life was grand! At that time I thought it would be so cool to own every model M3. Then one day it presented itself. My brother offered by buy my E36 M3 to make room and into the garage came what you see in this thread. I bought this car from a true car enthusiast who owned many collector cars. He “saved” this car from Texas and spent a small fortune restoring it. The car was special to him and many other enthusiasts because of its color combination. This is my 1988 E30 M3 – Henna/Black.

I asked my brother, ppower, to do a photoshoot on this car while it was mostly stock. Since I have owned the car I have put the in EVO3 interior parts and the leather door cards and console. I have suspension ready to go on the car and some BBS wheels. I also have an EVO2 front lip and EVO3 trunk lid and wing. All the mods are listed in my garage. I hope you all enjoy the photos!!
