The dazzling Techno Violet paintwork looks marvellous against the sharp lines of the E36 M3. The body retains a superb, glassy finish with a deep metallic flake on close inspection. Glancing along both sides all of the panels remain true with no unsightly dings to speak of. There are zero scuffs to be found, and all lenses are free from any cracks or moisture damage. The radiant paintwork is complemented perfectly by the subtle black trim laced throughout the exterior.
Once inside, the cabin appears bright and airy. The light grey Nappa leather upholstery looks especially welcoming against the Techno Violet, and is further contrasted by lashings of glossy wood trim. The M Design sport seats with integrated headrests, often referred to as Vader' seats, remain perfectly supportive with only the lightest of wear to the deep bolsters. The leather still feels soft to the touch and is free from any notable marking. Commonly worn areas such as the steering wheel, gear knob, and handbrake also show little signs of use.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The engine bays remains in good, clean condition. At the first turn of the key the 3.2-litre straight-six fires into life, idling correctly up to temperature with a smooth engine note. The five-speed manual gearbox feels perfectly tight and precise, providing smooth gear changes and commanding the engines power perfectly. A marque specialist has just carried out an Inspection II service at the current mileage of 54k.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Lepsons have done another incredible job of refurbishing the M3's 17-inch wheels. The forged M double-spoke alloys retain their factory-correct polished faces and present impeccably throughout along with brand new genuine centre caps and M badges. They are shod in good quality tyres all round and a matching alloy spare wheel can be found beneath the boot carpet. On test the brakes do a good job of pulling the car to a halt quickly and in a straight line.
The M3 was first registered in May 1996. It was supplied new by Wollaston Motors Ltd and has covered just 54k miles to date. Despite its low mileage the car is accompanied by a great maintenance record, and has just been serviced at the current mileage by a marque specialist. The history file is complete with the dealer-supplied leather M document pack, MOT certificates, various invoices from over the years, and an original sales brochure and price list. The service entries are as follows:
