1999 BMW M3 Convertible

I’ve never quite wrapped my head around the idea of the M3 convertible. Sure, there are people who like to go fast with the top down, but usually when it comes to doing that, a roadster will fit the bill. People who buy convertibles with a back seat aren’t normally looking for warp speed. Or are they? Apparently BMW thought so with the introduction of the E36 M3 convertible. This wasn’t the first M3 convertible, but it was the first one to be officially imported to the US. Carrying the same 240 horsepower inline six under the bonnet, this car had to cope with a bit more extra weight and body flex than its hard top counterparts. More often than not, these drop top M3s are equipped with an automatic gearbox, making hardcore drivers cringe even more.

This M3 convertible for sale in Maryland is thankfully a 5-speed manual and has a curious combination of a white hardtop to go along with its red paintwork.

I’m strangely drawn in by this M3 for some reason, perhaps due to the contrasting colors. This particular example has just enough miles to signify that it was neither abused nor a museum piece. This M3 is priced at the high end of the market, as these M3s have yet to take off in the manner of the original E30 variety. I’d suspect somewhere in the $12,000 to $14,000 range would be a bit more realistic, as the closer to $20,000 you get will move you into E46 territory. Then again, some people do prefer the E36 for its chiseled looks and simpler character.
