well i have an e46 325i
and the only experience i have with e36s is driving three different m3s
I have to agree i love those cars cause it is so raw, you hear the engine more, you feel more power, it is way easier and cheaper to mod and ther eis a larger market of artermarket parts.
also repairs on them aren't so bad. coming from an e46 that hasnt had much change since then... i already know the ropes. If i were to ever get an e36 it would HAVE to be an m3.
A lawyer opens the door of his BMW; suddenly a car drives by and rips the door completely off. Police officer
arrives & the lawyer bitterly complains about the damage to his car.
"Officer, I just got the car at BMW Greensboro
and look what they're done to my Beemer!!" he whines.
"You makes me sick" officer responds, "So worried about your BMW; but don't even notice your left arm is missing?"
"OMG.." lawyer replies. "Where's my Rolex?"
