2004 BMW M3 Dinan Supercharged – REVISIT

509

I posted a couple of Laguna Seca Blue E46 M3s yesterday that looked like they were owned and modded by a couple of similarly-minded fanboys. Today, we’ll shift gears and look at one of the most tastefully and maturely modified E46s out there (chrome exhaust surround notwithstanding). Carter featured this car for Tuner Tuesday earlier in the month and it’s received the full Dinan treatment, earning enough points via supercharger, exhaust, suspension, and more to get the official Dinan badge. The badges sit on a custom and beautiful red paint job, with CSL nods in the wheels and trunk spoiler. It has only covered 40k miles in its 10 years and was honored with the cover of BMWCCA’s “Roundel” magazine a couple years back. The seller says its “generally considered to be one of finest E46 M3 in the country,” and it’s hard to argue against that.

Last Call For Summer: Mercedes-Benz Convertibles

The convertible. An automotive guilty pleasure of sorts. Not the most practical of vehicles but with modern day folding hardtops, they have become much more mainstream and practical than they once were. Mercedes-Benz has been in the business of convertibles for years, carrying on even in the dark days of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Currently they offer a few different cabriolets and roadsters to appeal to a broad spectrum of buyers and budgets, from the four-cylinder SLK to the ferocious SLS AMG Roadster.

Today we’ll take a look at four convertibles from Mercedes-Benz’s past, ranging from the early 1970s into the new millennium. We’ll start with a very well cared for 1994 E320 Cabriolet for sale in Pennsylvania, arguably one of the most collectable W124s currently, notwithstanding the 500E/E500.

1998 BMW M3 Sedan

$_57 (1)

Tuner cars can be a scary proposition, with trails of work of unknown quality hiding in places you may not be able to see. At the same time, the lack of originality often drives the price down, meaning you could pick up a lot of fun for reasonable money. I’ve always loved the E36 sedan, and today’s example corrects the E36 M3’s most common complaint of lack of power. Someone put some serious miles on this car, and that leaves even more question marks. More investigation is need, as in “what’s a 90s interior look like after that mileage?” and “what does the E36 suspension look like after 100k miles of burnouts?” But maybe you don’t care, and seeing a 300+whp M3 sedan for the price of average E36 M3s is an open door for the next owner to continue exploring the badass sedan life.

1990 Volkswagen Corrado G60

Last month, Carter featured an impossibly clean Corrado SLC with very low mileage. A lot of these sport coupes were snapped up by young enthusiasts a few years on and sadly were modified beyond recognition. I remember frequenting Volkswagen shows during my college years and seeing many of these cars chopped up, driven hard and laid up wet. Now two decades since the last Corrados were sold new in the US, a good one is hard to come by. This silver, one-owner Corrado G60 for sale in Connecticut is fairly original with little modification but has high mileage. The G60 isn’t the more desirable powerplant in the model lineup, but given the condition, this car is sure to catch its fair share of attention.

Heap of the Week: 1990 Volkswagen Corrado G60

Regardless of the Corrado’s reputation for reliability, cars like this one just give off positive vibes. Once you look past the obvious cosmetic issues, there’s a lot to love here: clean, stock interior; great-looking door cards; an exterior paint color that’s not red; and a good amount of recent maintenance. The miles are fairly low for the year, too. So if you can get over the need for some bodywork and paint, this ends up looking like one of the more honest Corrados on the market today. Add in the fact that the seller is giving you the parts to address the immediate cosmetic challenges, and this could be a winner at $3K. The current BIN price, however, is a touch high, in my opinion.
