I was shopping for an E36 325i manual coupe and not having much luck finding a good one. Somehow I ended up with a 1995 M3!

I started having some trouble with my supercharged BMW E36 318is a few weeks ago. Firstly the car smelt strongly of fuel, and then it started losing power or stalling while driving.

In 1998, near the end of the E36 life, BMW Australia introduced a limited edition version of the 318is called the "Sport".

My passenger side window on my 1998 318is coupe has been stuck in the closed position for some time. I can usually get it going by removing the door trim and then hitting the window motor with a mallet. As it is summer and hot and my air conditioning also stopped working some time ago, I thought I would try and get the window working.

I have a strong disliking of the climate control system in my BMW E36, but in my previous E30, the controls for ventilation, heating and air conditioning were near perfect.
I am a bit of a 3 series fanatic, having owned a couple of E30s and a few E36s, plus a few parts cars. I like the combination of the compact size, good performance and handling, and that they are more sports sedan than an impractical and extrovert sports car. This blog is a place to share my experience and knowledge.
