As the owner of an S50 e30 ( not M3 ), I must admit that I can not afford an e36 or an e46 M3. The issue that appeals to me ( apart from experiencing the magic of 6 cylinder Mpower at an affordable...

Trouble with e30 M3's is lack of power - did you know 6 cylinder Mpower fits. I have a 3 litre, 6 speed e30 325 with 17 in Alpina replicas - I agree with your comment about multi-spoke wheels ( 76...

All e30 M3's were 4 cylinder. Very expensive motors to repair.

The 6 cylinder S50 Mpower motor does fit the e30 engine bay and makes life really exciting. Check out Alex Henry's pics.
