1995 BMW M3 Dakar Yellow Coupe 3.0 I6 M Power from UK and Ireland
Very fast car, comfortable, and get a great colour! Or better yet, find a GT
Some awful person painted the rear diffuser the body colour, so I immediately purchased a factory black one from BMW Solihull where I work.
Apart from that nothing, these cars are perfect to run, use, race or even cruise in!
The BMW M3 is one of those cars every enthusiast wants to own at some point in their vehicle career.
The power, comfort and reliability are what made these cars very very hot, and on any enthusiasts wishlist.
They made several rare M3's E36 including the GT and the GT2, and The Individual made from the Evolution models. These all came with rare colours such as Estoril Blue, Dakar Yellow which I have, Imola Red (GT2) and Fern Green (GT).
Power figures were 286bhp for the M3 and 321bhp for the EVO M3, although the figures from a lot of previous discussions and banter were the M3 was making more like 295bhp, and the Evolutions were struggling to make 311bhp.
My version is a limited edition Dakar Yellow coupe 95 last edition on a N registration with 75000 miles FBMWSH. Has full black vadar leather, carbon roof and polished motorsports. Really is breathtakingly beautiful.
I haven't modded the car, apart from the roof and getting the wheels repolished, it's pretty standard apart from a straight through DTM TUBI exhaust from previous owner, rollers at work make the car at 307bhp, which is very very reasonable for just an upgrade of an exhaust.
I've had the car about a month, and love it to pieces, it handles so great and it's so fast for a light BMW, as all the new ones are heavy and bulky!
No one can deny also that the proper M3 interior were a nice dark leather with the famous vadar seats, as they set this car off.
You always have unwanted attention with thieves wishlist cars, not to mention Scoobys and Evos up your backside trying to get you to bite, but believe me, whilst they await their turbo to kick in, these cars are at 100mph accelerating still hard!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Carbon roof? Do you have photos of this? Could you send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org (it is a real address..) I own a 94 LHD bought on export from BMW Park Lane.
