Interior Upholstery Options, BMW E36 M3

BMW E36 M3 interior upholstery options

The BMW E36 M3 was produced from 1992 thru 1999 with a total production run of 71,242 units worldwide.  Initially the E36 M3 was only offered in a coupe version, however by 1994 BMW offered a convertible and sedan version as well.  The E36 M3 was the first M3 initially designed to be a road car first as opposed to the E30 M3 which was designed to be a race car for the road.  The American and Euro-spec versions varied in many ways, the biggest being the motor.  North American models did not get individual throttle bodies like the Euro versions as well as a detuned cylinder head.  

The early model North American spec versions were powered by the S50B30 motor (offered in 1995 only) and the later models (1996 thru 1999) were manufactured with the S52B32 motor.  The engine displacement increased from 3.0 to 3.2 liters, racing torque from 225 lb/ft of torque to  236 lb/ft, however, engine power remained the same at 240hp.

Because the European motors were more complex, higher power output is 289 hp and 236 lb/ft of torque for the early model S50B30.  This motor was revised to become the late model motor code of S50B32 which increased power to 321hp and 258 lb /ft of torque. 

The BMW E36 M3 interior upholstery options varied by market, body style and years. The E36 M3 VIN contains 4 digits, two letters and two numbers which denote the model (coupe, sedan, convertible), left-hand drive or right-hand drive, engine size, transmission as well as for which market the car was built.
