The E36 BMW M3 was the first of the famed M3-badged machines to reach Australian shores way back in 1994. Successor to the legendary E30 M3, the E36 built upon what made the E30 so great, becoming an icon of 90’s motoring.
Powered by a 3.2-litre naturally aspirated inline six in its later guise, the E36 M3 made a handy 236kW and 350Nm by the time it made way for the E46 M3 in 1999. However, that finely-tuned rev-happy inline-six motor wasn’t its only party piece, with the E36 M3 being praised for its superb chassis and handling dynamics.
Being able to match cars with heftier price tags back in its day, such as the almighty Honda NSX, whilst being the kind of civilised road car that still looked relatively conservative and had plenty of space in the back for passengers and luggage, the E36 BMW M3 was truly something special.
Given the E36 M3’s accessibility and high performance, it’s only natural that it became a popular choice for those looking to indulge in a bit of track usage. And one thing that can’t be overlooked when it comes to preparing any car for the track is brakes. Despite being renowned for its braking performance when it was new, the E36 M3 isn’t getting any younger and braking technology has advanced quite a bit since the 90s.
