I recently had the opportunity to drive and shoot my friends new e36 BMW M3.
It's definitely one of the funnest cars I've ever driven, it reminded me a lot of my old e30.
Almost every element in the suspension is upgraded, so it has even better handling than stock, which is regarded as one of the best stock set ups out there.
The car is painted alpine white with a black interior (which for whatever reason I forgot to take photos of). The black /white theme is tastefully carried throughout the car. The only major things on the car that aren't black or white are the gold BBS LM wheels.
That soon will change however, they're set to be powder coated black or dark grey before too long.
After having the car for few days I definitely miss driving it, my Mercedes drives like a boulder compared to the M3.
