1996 BMW M3 Evolution Convertible
Rare factory manual gearbox

Registration: P898DJB
Chassis: WBSBK92090EX65448
Odometer: 55, 000
Transmission: Manual
MOT: May 2024

Very rare factory manual gearbox
Genuine reluctant sale
Stunning in bright red
Exceptionally rare in this specification and condition

We very pleased to bring to market this very nice and presentable BMW M3 Evolution Convertible with the very rare and desirable manual gearbox. This example, finished in striking Bright Red with the contrasting black leather and a black hood, looks absolutely fabulous and makes a pleasant change to the usual go to colour of Estoril Blue. Supplied new to its first owner by Altwood of Slough on 11/ 10/ 1996, the M3 still has its original black leather M pack with all the manuals and instruction books, and a service book containing 9 stamps with the most important one being the 1, 200 mile running in service carried out on 11/ 11/ 1996 at 1, 097 miles. This is probably the most important service that any BMW M car can have.

The M3 comes with the usual high specification that an M3 had back in the day with a few additions of the front arm rest and upgraded M alloy wheels, the front wheels being 225/ 17 and the rear being wider at 245/ 17. This is a great addition to an M3 and makes the car sit better. It also enjoys a fitted car cover, as well as the spare keys and a full tool kit. The specification also includes a power hood, although the vendor has reported that the hood has an intermittent fault which means that sometimes it will not operate. As you would expect, the M3 drives very and presents very well. For those in the know, this was the car that had 321 BHP from its 3200cc engine, a bit of a thing back in the day, which coupled with the manual 6-speed gearbox make this a very formidable performance car, even by today?s standards.

The E36 M3 was the car to follow the iconic E30 M3, which when it did in 1992 came in the form of a 3. 0 litre. It was in 1996 that it received the 3200cc engine and that made all the difference to its performance and gave it the accepted badge of honour from the M fans. It was quicker and smoother than the E30 and a lot more refined to drive. We all know what happened to the prices of E30s, so it can only be a matter of time before the E36 becomes at that level. The secret is to find one that is factory standard and unmolested, a little like this one maybe.

Our vendor, who is an avid car collector and appreciates all things fine in the world of cars, bought this example in November 2022 and is only selling it as he has lost his storage and did not want it to be left outside through the winter. He has had a very personal struggle with himself about which one of his cars he should sell. We are sure that he thinks he has made the wrong choice, but a choice he has made and somebody will benefit from this. Before our vendor, it was owned by a chap who has run an independent specialist for 10 years who covered 22, 000 miles whilst maintaining it to the highest standard. The service history is very good with a lot of invoices and receipts, along with almost every MOT dating back to its first. This is all kept together in date order, always a good sign that a car has been treated well.

It's not often we come across a car such as this, that in anybody?s world should be a sure fire bet that will appreciate in value whilst giving you a huge amount of fun along the way. With the stunning colour combination, great condition and believable and credible mileage of 55, 000 miles, this could be the ideal package. Feel free to come and see the M3 at our purpose built facility in Cheshire.
