I think if it was made to be sold in SA and was never imported from Germany by the first owner, then it should be called South African spec  Rofl

German spec *rolls eyes violently* you either have an m3 (s50b30/32) or a US spec (s52b30/32).. if we want to use that term so loosely we might as well call my e90 320i and e36 325i german spec too, rant over. smile bounce

Not sure why everyone gets so upset about the term ‘German spec’, was/is just an unofficial term used to differentiate between the initial E36 M3’s which were assembled here in SA which were/are referred to as ‘SA Spec’ and the ones built in Germany (‘German spec’). Small differences which have been covered in numerous threads over the years, one of the main differences being the seats which in the ‘German spec’ were/are the ‘vaders’, yes another unofficial term coined to describe the seats. So yeah, as stated, all unofficial terms but if you know what is being referred to it’s not that big of a deal.

And just to add, one is not better than the other or more special, if anything the ‘SA spec’ is the rarer version due to the fact there were less of these made/sold.

These are very special cars and becoming more and more rare, the value is escalating for clean examples. I sold mine in 2014 and miss it to this day. The term German spec, might not be totally correct, but is part of S.A history and as such is useful, especially to differentiate which seats the particular model had.

Both Equally special and sort after these days.

The term to me has value and I have no clue why guys get worked up over it. We all know what it means
