Pandem E36 BMW M3 Looks Perfect in Yellow

The E36 doesn't rank very high on anybody's list of best BMWs. However, it's a modern classic, and with the right combination of mods, it can look cool. Well, the girls might not understand why you paid so much money for a puke-yellow 25-year-old bucket, so be prepared to be single for a while.

Mechanically, the E46 is arguably a better M car than the E36, but we love a bit of diversity in the tuning section of our website and decided to share this build. It's a Pandem/Rocket Bunny kit that we kind of forgot about. It's amazing how many of these older models have been covered by the famous Japanese tuning company.

It kind of suggests Japan loves old BMWs too, though based on the extreme LTO E30 Touring from yesterday, we kind of knew that already. Do you like cutting holes in your car? Do you like rivets? Enjoy difficulties when filling up? It's pretty normal for a fan of tuning.

The Pandem E36 kit is pretty self-explanatory, focusing on extending the fenders by a good few inches. The design is still respectful of the original BMW look, as it mostly leaves the two faces of the M3 intact.

By the way, this appears to be a North American model, and the owner believes it was the first Pandem Widebody E36 M3 in Canada. If it's anything like the U.S. model, then it's inferior in many ways to the European counterpart.

The E30 hadn't sold that well, and BMW of America wanted to make the E36 M3 cheap ($35,000 when new). For example, the engine displacement is the same, but the U.S. car didn't get the individual throttle bodies and the expensive Vanos valve timing system. So it only made 240 horsepower, about 40 less. They also missed out on the headlight washers and was stuck with a 5-speed manual for all its life.
