Great fun if you don't mind the repairs

The E36 M50 engines are reliable if you
spend the money to get them that
way... Before buying or shortly after,
make sure to replace the plastic
waterpump housing and the waterpump
itself. The plastic used on both is
prone to breaking and will overheat the
car. Also, replacing the radiator and
thermostat is a good thing to do if it
has never been done before. The rear
shock mounts will fail also. Replace
these with E46 mounts. The ignition
coils will need to be replaced also if
they are original. Be sure to buy a
car that has been serviced regularly.
Transmissions should not be an issue,
but the auto does have more failure
than the manual.

Best Features

The acceleration, styling, modification possibilities, and certainly the handling.

Worst Features

The interior on these cars could use some work. The headliner, A and C pillar covers, and the door panels are my main problems.
