Any proof, inside pics?

Nope. You know it's funny.. Nobody asked if my Manta was the real thing :)
Don't know why. I will go outside now and get a "proof" picture. It will be posted in my post 101 ;)

The reason why people ask for proof on some cars and not others is because this car is a BMW. People get curious when people post cars that most people can't afford (high-quality luxury cars / heavily modified cars / Sports cars). So seeing this is a BMW, thats why vette was asking for proof.

I dont trust this photo, its too blurry. fake..

Obviously its a joke. Nice Beemer, never knew they made M3s like this.

Sweet! I knew they made regular E36 Tourings, but not M3 wagons.

What did you do with the Manta?

First: Thanks for all the comments :) I appreciate y'all diggin' ma ride ;)

Tell us more about the car, there are normally no E36 M3 Tourings.:)

I originally intended to buy an M3 E36 coupé. But I need more space, because I have my own business. So I contacted this company who are experts on BMW, and I paid them to "kitbash" a 320i touring and an M3 coupé because BMW never built one. As far as I know it is the only TÜV approved M3 touring in my country. It is the 3.2 with 321 hp and a 6-speed manual. It has a Scorpion exhaust and KW v3 coilovers. I got it painted in Dakar Yellow. It ended up costing me a helluva lot more than an original M3 coupé would, but I think it is worth every penny. It's practical and insanely fast at the same time. :D

Killua: Still got the Manta. It's in storage though. Never gonna sell it!

You know, you should go to car shows with that car. Its awfully rare, so get some trophys :D

Killua

So it is custom made... that's pretty cool!

I am planning to try it on a track next summer. Not to many car shows in this country unfortunately.

Its a great idea indeed, I bet Jalopnik would be all over this one. You should write them a mail to get an article on their blog. :)

Very nice. I wish I could see these over here in the US. I really like the color, especially with those blacked-out taillights.

Looks great :thumbsup:

Sir Tristan

BTW where's the name from?

Torden
04-26-2011, 10:47 AM
Thanks for the comments.
The name is the same as the color.
"Dakar Yellow"

OH right. That's really cool.

Nice car, dude. I didn't know either that they made an M3 version of the wagon; I thought it was only the coupe, sedan, and convertible, plus one special-edition compact.

One thing, though: in the most recent pictures, what happened to the body-colored trim that used to be on the car instead of the black plastic trim? Also, the new rims look cool.

I was wondering that; although i think it looks better with the black trim, before there was perhaps a little too much yellow :P

The black trims break up the colour a bit, which i quite like.

Black trim = Win.

They never did. It's custom made.

Somebody slammed their door into the side of the car, and the trim lost a big slice of paint because it's some kind of rubber plastic. To prevent that for happening again I went all black.

Yes it does. I rev it all the time because of it :) The track is called "Rudskogen".

Almost got the color right.

SLRR is it? :)

And Torden, I love the car man! I really have a soft spot for BMW wagons. Any kind of them. Especially the way yours is done up. Nice and clean, with potentially great stance. (The pictures don't do the stance justice btw, just saying ;) ) And to top it all off, it's manual! Beautiful car, mate. ;)

You need one of those "more colors" mods. There's at least three on GOM. :P

Nice work with that, though. Makes me want to create a save game with a bunch of cars that are replicas of NFSCars members' cars.

I've got one, have 40 pages of color:P

Your wagon is one of the best E36s I have ever seen, Torden.

It sounds great too. Nothing like a sweet inline-6.

Torden

Thank you, Killua :)

XenTek: I shall take som pictures of the stance just for your liking ;)
