AFAIK there aren't any. If there are, then they've been imported. We never got them as a model option. We only got the 325i and 328i convertables. We got the Coupe and the Sedan (3.2 only) in SA. You could always buy a 325/328 and do a heart transplant.

Default Incorrect Info

Just a note that all of the comments about final drive gearing are incorrect.

All E36 M3s of each year had the same final drive ratios, regardless of engine, etc. There were differences in the size of the final drive, but the ratios remained the same.

1993-5 - 3.15 5spd, 3.23 Auto
1996-9 - 3.23 6spd & SMG, 3.38 Auto

FYI

Default Trivia

The M3 LTW in US spec actually came with many stickers on its parts labelled GT International....a reference to the GT cars...

Both the US spec M3 LTW and the euro GT International had CF trim on the dash over the passenger side near the glove box, the ashtray, the console. Both models came with the adjustable front splitter and wing with extensions. US versions generally came with those parts in a package in the trunk. Along with that trunk package was a dual pickup oilpump and pan assembly for the US market. There was also a motorsport strut bar included in the trunk. A few LTW cars hand assembled by PTG had these parts installed before sale. At least a couple started more as body in white from PTG and were lighter by another 50-70 LB than the usual LTW that came from Germany. The BIW car(s) lacked undercoating. I've only seen one of these, but suspect there were more.

GT International cars in Europe had hot cams, hot DME, and the shorter intake trumpets that later came on the S50B32 cars for higher hp at the higher rpm.

US M3 LTW had stiffer springs by 10 or 15%, and shorter springs as well. These were the "euro" springs, just not common in our market. Generally in the day, they were regarded as equal to the H&R sport springs for the M3. They were the first to come with staggered front and rear rims like the later 3.2 engined cars, yet, interestingly enough, they came with same size front and rear tires, like the 95 cars. The US LTW's also came of course without AC, and with single heater valves, rather than driver and passenger.

I'll try to add more later... thats all that comes to mind.
