1993 BMW M3 Sedan Widebody & Supercharged

Screen Shot 2013-05-14 at 11.23.31 AM

Usually when I see E36 widebodies I scroll on as quickly as possible. They always look like they’re trying too hard and that it would have been cooler with more restraint. Today’s E36 is trying pretty hard, but it’s on one of my favorite modern Bimmers, the E36 M3 Sedan. It backs up the fat arches with a built S50 and a supercharger, developing plenty of twist to spin the fat meats on the back.

Model: M3 Sedan
Engine: 3.0L supercharged inline six
Transmission: 5-speed manual

I like the idea of a widebody sedan, and if it were my car, I’d let the fenders speak for themselves and go OEM+ with the wheels and bumpers. But for now, it’s a unique take on the tuner M3 that would be a ton of fun for the money if it stays under $15k.

  1. Absolutely hideous. Should have been left in the 90s. I’d expect better from this site.

  2. @No Thanks, if you share what is considered acceptable by you I will make sure I only choose cars that are in line with your tastes.

  3. I actually prefer the E36 M3 sedan over the 2-door. I’m not a fan of the body treatment on this particular car though (yes, it’s trying way too hard), but I’ll bet it’s pretty exciting to drive.

    Unfortunately, AutoCheck isn’t a big fan of this beast (with a very “not good” score of 7). Probably has something to do with the 1997 “collision with a median barrier” and/or the 220K miles this car had racked up by June 2012 (not sure what part the “shell” is that the seller claims has 66K miles).

  4. There is no such thing as a 1993 M3.

    Carfax identifies the VIN as belonging to a 1993 325i. With that little piece of information, the seller’s honesty comes into serious question.

    NEXT…

  5. I was thinking that too, Kevin, but unfortunately let it slide. I usually do better fact checking, you’re spot on. Still a funny piece of auto, I didn’t and don’t think anyone in their right mind would actually purchase it.

  6. Nate, I’d have to agree with you that anyone who knows anything about BMWs is going to steer clear of this one.

    A bigger question for me is the history report that is included in the ebay listing. At first I thought there is a serious flaw in the database so I pulled the VIN and plugged it into Autocheck on my own. It pops up as a 1993 325i.

    I was under the impression that the description page of the history report was automatically generated by Autocheck based on the VIN. Obviously that is not the case. I’m going to have to look at these things with a bit more scrutiny from now on.

  7. as has been pointed out the E36 M3 sedan never existed in 1993….not even in Europe…
    97 was the first year for the sedan in North America…so starting with that your radar should be screaming….
