Just for the record, regarding the E36 wheelbase. They are all 270mm, including the M3 3.0.
It's only the M3 3.2 that has a 10mm longer wheelbase (you can see the front wheels not being perfectly centered in the wheel arch/fender).

This is because of the 3.2's specific lower control arm, which gives the car more caster.

I'd be pretty stoked if I saw one of those originals on the street.

I loooove how close the 1M is to E30 M3 dimensions—it's so sad to see how big BMWs became.

This is great. Been saying it since day 1. This newest m3 is a lipstick on a pig. Its literally a 5 series. Stop calling it an m3/4. BMW just cant help themselves. Seems like Porsche has no problem sticking to their roots with regard to dimensions.

I mean, it's the same with most cars, if not with pure sports cars. Have a look at a new Civic, it's bigger than past Accords. It's unfortunate for performance, but it is what it is.
