With some remorse already, last weekend I sold my 1991 BMW 325i.

In October 1994 BMW Australia introduced a sport option pack for the 318is coupe. This option pack included 16-inch alloys and certain M-Technic parts. I've seen three such 318is's around. Apparently the sports option pack was also offered on the 325i but I haven't seen any of those.

The ignition lock on our 1997 318is 4-door has for some time shown some signs that it was wearing out. Sometimes when you turned the key the lock would just spin freely.

The instruments in my 1991 E36 BMW 325i intermittently stop working. Usually it happens when I operate some electrical equipment like the wipers or press the brake pedal and activate the brake light switch.

The parts car I just purchased had a good roof lining. It had been retrimmed at some point and was still in good condition, but a little dirty.

Aside from some cup holders inside the glove box lid that are only really suited to a picnic, the Australian market 1991 to 1997 3 series (E36) is bereft of any way to safely transport drinks.

When you are shopping for a car as old as the E36 generation 3 series, it makes sense to choose the model that will be the most reliable and require the least maintenance. Here's a run down on the pros and cons of most of the engines available (in Australia).
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.
