: I have found an 88 M3 w/ 98000 on the clock. the price is almost reasonable, but my gut says it just dos'nt look right.
: Is there any way to tell in the field if this is a true M3 or a fake.
: Thanks for any help on this matter.
Since it is possible to change everything over from a wrecked M3 to a "normal" 3 series, I would think the best way to tell is by the VIN number. Check the dash, underhood cowl, and body panels for the VIN and make sure they all match.
