There's a common problem with the BMW M50 engines as fitted to the E36 320i and 325i, and the E34 520i and 525i. On the intake manifold there is a air pipe connection that over time can come loose.

I finally got the car around 6:30am this morning, 10 days after the original planned delivery date.
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.
