It's been a while since updating this little E36 log, so here is the latest.

Car ownership, and enthusiasm meanders as you experience different things.... sometimes you end up in a new place unintentionally.

My intention when buying this little $8K m3 was to put an ls into it.......... in part to the posts and research here.... and my continual improvment of the stock platform..... I quickly decided against the swap...........

Fast forward to my job change and move to texas hill country....... I'm finding the e36 s52 perfect for these windy roads........

fast forward to next weekend...... i'm selling the c63 507 edition...... while a very powerful muscle car... I found myself driving the m3 more and more...... and after the shifting and driving exp of the m3 found the c63 lacking in control.

next sat I pick up a 6spd 360 modena......... I think it will complement the m3 nicely.... giving me the mt f car exp with a high winding v8..... oh and the looks....

so in a strange way this forum and my little m3 have guided me to a mt f car

thx guys..... will post up when I get her home...... going to drive it from dallas to san antonio... hopefully all goes smoothly .

Woah. Congrats. Thats a true classic.
The fact that the e36 still pulls at you though with all this high quality steel around you, really says a lot about how the "underpowered fake US spec m3" is a lot more than people who haven't driven it, believe it to be.

You could say im building a collection of the unloved perf cars::::

Us spec e36
And the ‘poor mans’ ferrari as my brother called it.

But if u are buying driving for the drivers exp .... percieved bling value matters little -/)


Owning the m3 just killed my view of my amg... just killed the exp.


And i made the mistake of renting a 458 italia for some laps on track... and i cant get the smile off my face!

Nice. Dallas to SA is a nice drive. Just careful when you hit Waco, lots of cops.
If you want to make a pit stop in Fort Worth on the way down there, I'd buy you a beer.
