The E36, 5-speed manual, inline 6 is the most fun I have had behind the wheel of a car. I was amazed at how it accelerates even from a lower speed in 5th gear. It is incredibly stable at high speeds (100+ mph) and it comes to a stop on a dime. Never felt more safe and comfortable driving that fast. It shifts beautifully and is incredibly fun to drive. No major mechanical problems and I'm at 160k. Mine in avus blue & the beautifully designed exterior looks incredible - especially after I changed the yellow blinkers on the front corner, side and rear to clear lenses. I think its the best looking car on the road when you have the rear spoiler, sunroof tilted and clean wheels. Highly recommended
Effortless acceleration in any gear, exterior design and color (avus blue), incredible braking, grips to the road like glue, low to the ground, exhilarating to drive, comfortable, seats, orange/red dashboard back light, trunk space, 50/50 front/rear weight ratio, access to battery terminal in front and back, clean and neat engine compartment.....I could go on for days!
Steering wheel is a little larger than I like - but that was common in '95.
No cruise control.
