Chris,<br>I tried to email you with a couple of questions, but your email came back undeliverable - thought you should know...<p>Anyway, I know very little about my M3 - just bought it 3 weeks ago - got the manual from the dealer today. It is a very early 1995 model built 9/94.<p>I have the rotary temp knobs, I assume yours auto climate control is the digital? Do you know if this drops is as an upgrade, or can it only be used as a replacement? (I don't know what prewiring/sensors might have been required?)<p>Also, what is a mid level computer? Is that the one that just has the upper row of buttons? Which is what I have - I would like the full computer but I don't think it is a drop in upgrade - perhaps missing sensors again?<p>Was the $200 for the computer only?<p>Thanks<br>Ted<p><br><i>: CARBON FIBRE: Automatic Shifter<br>: Automatic Climate Control<br>: Mid level Computer........$200.00<p>: TIRES: (1) Brand new MXX3 Michelin 235/40 ZR 17 <br>: with stock spare rim Motorsport 10 Spoke<br>: (small lip damage 1inch).........$325.00 as set<br>: or $200 tire/$150 rim only<p>: (2) Yokohama AVS S4Z 235/45 ZR 17 with<br>: only 1,000 miles ..$100 each/$175 for both<br>: <p></i>

Bruce,<br>Thanks for the info... nice to know my M3 wasn't first off the line, though I don't think they started making fixes till 95 (like the harder value retainers)...<p>Ted<p><i>: : Anyway, I know very little about my M3 - just bought it 3 weeks ago - got the manual from the dealer today.

what did they improve to the E36 M3 in 1995. I have a piece of paper that is my Certified pre-owned stats. It says Original Vehicle In-Service Date 12/29/1995 what does this indicate? <p><p><i>: Bruce,<br>: Thanks for the info... nice to know my M3 wasn't first off the line, though I don't think they started making fixes till 95 (like the harder value retainers)...<p>: Ted<p>: : : Anyway, I know very little about my M3 - just bought it 3 weeks ago - got the manual from the dealer today.

<br>In Service Date is when your car was first sold or put into service as a loaner. Basically it is the date (+4yrs) on which your warranty will expire. <p>Build date is when the car came off the line in Germany and I believe is going to be in your drivers (passenger?) door sill.<p>Can't help you with exact bug fixes for 95's, I believe they were somewhat plentiful however.<p>Regards,<br>Preston<br>98 M3/4<br>

I have only been researching this for the last few weeks - AFTER I bought my M3.... I guess next time I should do it before!<p>There were a couple of features - like the one touch sun roof which was added mid 95. Also, the value retainers were upgraded sometime in 95 to a harder material. This is the one that has me concerned...<p>There is a long list of servcie bulletins on the web, but no explaination of what they are.<p>Hope that helps...<p><br><i>: what did they improve to the E36 M3 in 1995.
