The E36, which debuted in 1992, managed a sprint from 0 to 100 km /h in less than six seconds. It came off the belt 71,242 times.
In 2000, the Powerdome on the engine bonnet added another, and now traditional, identifying mark of the BMW M3. From zero to 100 km/h only 5.2 seconds was needed. For the first time, the BMW M3 also had a variable differential lock on the rear axle.
Among the highlights of the fourth generation from 2007 was the production of the exclusive BMW M3 small series, including the 135 BMW M3 GTS with 450 hp or the almost 70 units of the BMW M3 CRT (Carbon Racing Technology).

The values of fuel consumptions, CO2 emissions and energy consumptions shown were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model. The values of some vehicles are already based on the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to ensure the comparison between the vehicles. [With respect to these vehicles, for vehicle related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2-emissions the CO2 values may differ to the values stated here.] The CO2 efficiency specifications are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the European Regulation in its current version applicable. The values shown are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle for the classification. For further information about the official fuel consumption and the specific CO2 emission of new passenger cars can be taken out of the „handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emission and power consumption of new passenger cars“, which is available at all selling points and athttps://www.dat.de/angebote/verlagsprodukte/leitfaden-kraftstoffverbrauch.html.
