A question.

I'm thinking on getting an E36 sedan. I know it isn't E46 but I really need help here. Will the car be slower and dieing due to its age. Can that aging process be fixed by changing parts? if yes, what kind of parts and how much roughly?

As long as you get an E36 that has been maintained by the current owner I don't think you will have any issues besides routine maintenance.

BMW motors are know for going 200K miles or more with plenty of power.

I think the e36 is more solid than the e46. And I own both.
