No, those are the M Coupe/ M Roadster wheels. Throwing stars look like this:

Yeah I'm still looking for a few interior pieces because one side of the door speakers is black and one is grey. lol. But the interior as a whole looks super clean.


Yeah, I've been wanting to buy one ever since I test drove one 2 years ago. The power and handling is addicting.

Once those small issues are fixed, this is a great find. I still really enjoy E36 M3's.

Throwing stars look much better than the Roadstar wheels on that car. Maybe I'm just partial to how the Roadstar wheels look on M Coupes, as a previous owner.

Nice find for 5 grand!
Here's my 95 mint condition all stock except for pulleys and XBrace. only 87K miles. I'm thinking of starting at 12K when I get around to selling.

Love the E36 M3! Congrats!

Honestly, i prefer the older BMWs as they have more style and character. I own a 91 E30 sedan (318i) and will probably die in that car. You feel so much more connected to the road in the older cars vs. the newer ones.

Just make sure to reinforce the rear subframe

Wow, those seats are amazing. People in the 90s probably thought it came from outer space!

Yes but it's a 2 owner car, the PO was a 75 yr old Dr. never tracked or abused I think I may have red lined it one or twice, new coolant system, new power steering hoses, all records of maintenance, etc, etc, etc.

Hey guys, so originally I thought this car was dakar yellow. After all of your responses I was motivated to find out more. Coincidently I was replacing the passenger door handle and when I took off the door panel I saw the oem color. It was indeed a lighter, softer dakar yellow. The exterior of the car is a darker, more pronounced yellow. I can't say that I'm dissapointed, I actually like the darker yellow better- it looks more aggressive. But hence, the mystery is solved.

I'll take more pix today.

So... Stickers and ricer roundels and emblems are gone, and a few other things done here and there, but still a long way to go. Waiting on parts to be shipped to my house... Hopefully the gas lid gets here tomorrow because I can't bear to drive around with the metal ricemobile tank cover any longer.

Interesting color, it almost looks like the FD RX-7 yellow. Interestingly, there's a 95 Dakar Yellow M3 on the bay for $12.9k right now.

Lol maybe, maybe... I will take it to the track though. It already has coilovers with billstein shocks. The handling is amazing.
