I have lots of things that I want to talk to you about so, lets start right away. First, I’ve noticed in the last couple days that the BMW E36 Blog is loading slower than normal. So, I contacted my host ( in order to have them check if there’s a problem with my hosting server. They replied that the server is ok and working at normal speed and that it may be caused by my connection. I’ve noticed that my connection is a little bit slower these days than what it used to be (I must have forgotten to pay that bill :p LOL!). So, I decided to ask for your opinion? Are you feeling the BMW E36 Blog is slower than normal? I mean really slow to the degree that it’s annoying? or is it fast as normal and the problem is in my connection only?

Second, did you notice the 498 subscribers to the blog? I’m almost there to acheive the 500-subscriber mark which I have to admit is a target that I didn’t think it’s going to be accomplished, but here we are! We’re almost there! I just need 2 more subscribers to reach that. What do you think? Is that a great thing or what!!! Of course, I want to thank all of you for being loyal subscribers to my blog and I want to welcome my new subscribers as well. I hope you will enjoy the blog and find it useful.

Third, umm… okay I’ve noticed lately that there is a lot of questions being posted in the comments section which sometimes are not related in anyway to the post content. and this is normal because if the visitors of the blog have questions that need answering, they have no other way to post their questions except as a comment. I totally understand that, but from a logical point of view, it would be better if these questions were put in a separate location, so I started to think about creating a BMW E36 only forum. Of course, I’m aware of the fact that there is a lot of forums about BMW cars including the E36 model. But, I think that having a website like this one which deals with BMW E36 cars only is a very good idea. So, as you can see, I’m a little bit lost and I couldn’t take that decision alone. So, I decided to go ahead and ask you. What do you think of this idea, having a BMW E36 forum hosted on the BMW E36 blog? Of course, you’re welcome to share your thoughts below. But, please use the right sidebar poll to vote for the idea.

About our previous poll, the results are:

Poll 5 Result

So, according to this poll, I guess there’s a lot of people here who need to upgrade their headlights 😀 . I will try to concentrate a little bit on this issue in the future.

Finally, please take a look at the poll on the right sidebar and let us hear your opinions. Have fun!

    I see the last comment is dated 2008, it is now 2012 so here goes. My 1997 328i Cabriolet’s steering is giving me some worries. usually it is OK but has just started to become very heavy in both directions. Heavy when turning and will not return to straight ahead without loads of help. I can’t find the reservoir so do not know the contents of the hydraulic system.
    Any ideas please.
    My headlights were very poor until I fitted some light bulbs which I suspect were too high a wattage as the already brown light units finally burnt through the outside glass,I fitted after market head light units and problem solved although I have lost the adjustable height setting.
