1988 BMW M3 Lime Rock Edition

Gaswerks Garage is pleased to offer this very unique 1988 Lime Rock Edition E30 M3. The restoration began with a regular Silver over Cardinal Red E30 M3 with just over 90,000 original miles. The car was immediately torn down to a shell and repainted in Fire Orange, the same color as the E92 M3 Lime Rock Edition and a very similar color to Inka Orange used on the 2002s. After the body work was completed the engine was sent out to Steve Dinan where a 2.5L engine was built. The stroker motor received all new components and is an absolute pleasure to run into the higher RPMs.

After the engine and exterior work were completed, the interior was professionally redone. The seats were finished in the same cloth as the real Lime Rock Edition and carbon fiber pieces were added throughout. The radio was removed to make for a very natural driving experience. Other features of this E30 M3 include competition wheels, bigger brakes and much more!

This car has only 92,000 miles on the odometer and only 1,000 miles since the restoration. This is an incredibly cool M3 that turns heads and receives compliments wherever it goes.

1995 BMW M3 Lightweight “M3 CSL”

Beginning with the first E36 M3s delivered, BMW racers began pressuring BMW for a homologation version with which to compete against Porsche 911s in sports-car racing. A homologation version is a car with special modifications from the factory that are allowed in racing as “production” cars, if enough cars are made and sold. In 1995, BMW relented and offered the E36 M3 Lightweight.

Gaswerks Garage is proud to offer this stunning, original paint E36 M3 Lightweight. Unlike a regular E36 M3 lightweight, this E36 M3 features a powerful and rare Group N/GT Engine rending this possibly one of the best examples of an E36 M3 lightweight. Owned previously by BMWCCA members and Factory Race Drivers, this car has been carefully owned and never abused. Unlike a regular E36 M3, The major changes to the car were to lower the weight for racing. The cars came without a radio (although the speakers were installed and the car pre-wired for the radio), air conditioning, leather seats, tool kit, or a sunroof. The doors have aluminum skins. There is no underbonnet insulation blanket and the trunk only has carpet on the floor. Overall the changes added up to 200 lb (91 kg) less than a standard M3.

This car drives absolutely wonderfully, it is in part due to being fitted with the shorter springs from the European M3. The car produced 287 RWHP on a dyno, a very great figure for a naturally aspirated straight six. The engine makes no strange noises or rattles and absolutely sings in the higher RPMs. Power is delivery through a 5 speed gearbox that shifts smoothly and without hesitation.

The interior is immaculate with no stains or rips, and has been fitted with a period correct BMW radio which makes road trips or sunday drives even more enjoyable when you’re not listening to the Group N exhaust. The seats, headliner, dash and carpet are all in “like-new” condition.

The engine bay is spotless, no drips, stains or oil can be found inside. The straight-six engine looks as if it was just installed yesterday. The conversion was done by TC Kline in Columbus, Ohio.

With only 125 cars built and only 116 cars sold to the public, this is an incredibly rare opportunity to own one of the most legendary M3s ever produced.
