Well that will come to be seen... I myself like Roy and my brother and a few others own one of these. Like said before I purchased this due to it being different and liking the fact that there was only 50.. not to sell it on to make a profit! To say it's not special is saying something really as I see the BMW M3 in any form a pretty special car to start with, and to put a price on one well that's a completely different kettle of fish.. does a fiesta XR2 warrant 14+k price tags? RS's and cosworths? Horses for courses and all that.. but likes been said a number of times back to the GT/imola...

Equally, the 3.0Lt GT Individual is also a tarted up standard M3, nothing more, so lets not get precious about this either. On the other hand the all LHD GT Coupe (of which 356 were made) was a bit special and most certainly did have a number of engine mods to allow (iirc) 295 bhp.

Both of the 50 number limited edition E36 M3's are lovely cars and they fully deserve preservation. Whether the market is ready for a £35k Imola, who knows, we'll see.
Agree

Hello, newbie here!

I'm in the market for an E36 Evo GT should anyone know of one, condition doesn't particularly fuss me as I'm happy to restore it, more concerned about a reasonable mileage example.

Granted beggars can't be choosers with few they made!

Agreed.

You need to absolutely nail the pictures for a £30k car, in fact I wouldn't have put the advert up until I had all the pictures ready, as the market is hottest when a car advert first pops up.

Well-composed shots of every angle, followed interior images, then engine bay and wheels, then a few 'detail' shots like the stitching, exhaust tips, drivers bolster etc.

Good pictures sell good cars, and I'm sure yours is, you just have to do it more justice!

I have managed to find a few more photos I had saved which I have now uploaded onto the ad, may still need to take a few more over the weekend though

I've just coughed up just shy of £40k for an Imola GT. Beautiful car though. 56,000 miles and low owners in fairness. Low owners, lots of history but not serviced in the last 5 years as its been garaged but it walked through an MOT last week. Maybe I've set the bar I don't know, however in the current market it seems to be the right kind of money. The owner paid £8k 5 years ago and just garaged her so a great investment on his part! Not sure I'll see the same level of return in the next 5 years though!!! I'm looking to preserve her though and put her into the M3 collection I am building so she won't be for sale anytime soon.

I think that's crazy money personally.

All the best with it though.


Wait, did you buy this in Northern Ireland?

Nope, UK! Itís strong money I agree but Iím nostalgic about my old E36 323i from when I was 18 and my E36 M3. I love Imola Red and itís always nice to have something rare as humans tend to value scarcity! I want to show my little lad when he grows up that this was the model of car which took me into the world of being a petrol head :-)
