1. non-US market E36 M3s (like yours) have 2-piece front brake rotors, designed so they can expand from heat without deforming. for unclear "liability" reasons, the US M3 have one-piece front brake rotors.
2. US & European headlight requirements are different; Euro light covers can be glass while US ones have to be plastic, and Euro lights can be more powerful and have a sharper cut off and are aimed differently (they're better basically). US requirements seem to be designed to minimize glare to oncoming traffic even if the lights are poorly aimed, while euro lights are designed to actually let you see where you're going.

Ok so I´ve been reading this borad for a while and I´m wondering..
1. What is "Euro floating rotors"? and does my 93 Euro Coupé have them?
2. What is the difference between US and Euro headlights and turnsignals?

Thats all folks! thanks!

Euro 93 M3 Coupé
