Actually, for one year BMW Canada imported around 80 of the euro-spec 
M3s (non-evo) with the 3.0l, 286bhp, completely variable VANOS and 
individual throttle engine. That was back in 1995 (I think) and we 
didn't get M3's again until this year but they are all US spec 240bhp 
beasts. We never got the 321 bhp Evo 1 that you can get in Europe.
