Beautiful car! I have a 96 M3 luxury coupe that looks identical and gets lots of compliments. Artic silver with mulberry interior, clear lens, M-contours, 5speed, HK, etc. etc... will be sharked and X-braced soon. If there're two things I would change, they would be titanium silver(unfortunately, offered after 5/98) and sportier side skirts.
FYI - for those who were curious about the aero pkg...between 95 and maybe early 97, BMW offered the M3 coupe in a luxury package for $3K more. Front spoiler and side skirts are M-Technic, rear diffuser are also M-Technic (but were also used on the non-lux M3 sports), power M sports (instead of manual M-style sports) seats, wood trim, shift knob, door handles, parking brake handle (cool), leather trim on door panels (beautiful IMO) and M-contour rims. Suspension is the same as non-lux. Car weighs and performs the same as a non-lux, contrary to what others may have been led to believe.
