Hello,<p>Sorry about the E30 ignorance, but I was hoping someone can help me identify what I saw...<p>Driving home from work I saw a red E30-sized BMW with M3 badging (Oklahoma plates - anyone here?). I've never been that close to one of the older M's, but the fenders seemed to flare out quite a bit more than I remember. Tight suspension, badging looked factory (sides too). Any clues to help me identify the car? Maybe a 318 club-sport (didn't they have M badges?) Anyway, it was very nice...<p><br>Thanks,<br>Dave<p>

Confuse our cars with those again and we'll have to take you out back and beat you. ;-) Only kidding of course, who knows what the heck you saw.

Thought I'd read something on the UUC digest about a 318. Anyway, I've looked at some E30 M3 pics - this thing had MUCH wider fenders and I think I remember small M badges on the sides... never seen anything like it.<p>Thanks,<br>Dave<br></b><br>
