E36 M3!

We had the opportunity to sit down with Nick Tarver and talk a bit about his M3 and here is what he had to say.


My car is a 1998 BMW M3 also known as the E36 M3. It's a sedan model in alpine white on a Dove Grey interior.


I bought the car back in 2017 for a daily cruiser. The car is light weight and is powered by an inline six which makes it a fun ride to tear down the streets. I've taken it to several Caffeine and Octane car shows here in Atlanta over the years which is always a lot of fun. One of my favorite things to do is tear it down the Tail of the Dragon and the previous owner said he loved to do that as well.

What do you have planned in the future for this E36 M3?


I'd like to do a Manual Swap, install a Dinan intake and top it off with Super Sprint exhaust and Manual Front Vaders.



Be Sure to Give Nick a follow on Instagram @NickTarverr and keep an eye out for Nick at future car shows.
