: Sorry about the E30 ignorance, but I was hoping someone can help me identify what I saw...
: Driving home from work I saw a red E30-sized BMW with M3 badging (Oklahoma plates - anyone here?). I've never been that close to one of the older M's, but the fenders seemed to flare out quite a bit more than I remember. Tight suspension, badging looked factory (sides too). Any clues to help me identify the car? Maybe a 318 club-sport (didn't they have M badges?) Anyway, it was very nice...
E30 M3's don't have badges on the sides, just front and rear.
318ti's that are club sports are E36's not E30's, so they look like a regular E36 with their back end chopped off but they do have some M badging. Confuse our cars with those again and we'll have to take you out back and beat you. ;-) Only kidding of course, who knows what the heck you saw.
