I have been thinking in the last couple days about the readers here who read my posts regularly and just thought how cool it would be to get to know each and everyone of you. I know that the blog doesn’t have a huge number of readers, but I guess that having a little number of readers who really care about a topic is much better than a very large number of readers who don’t really care much about it. I think that my readers are a group of BMW E36 enthusiasts (maybe drivers too . . . I don’t know) who just enjoy every second of life when they’re behind their E36 wheel.


OK, building on what I just said, how about you submit a comment on this post introducing yourself to the community in here? Please feel free to post whatever you like in here and in case you want to follow me, you can write your information like me below

    Great informative website, thank you! Underwriting Mgr Mortgage Banking:
    1996 E36, 318i 138K miles, just purchased, pick it up Monday 8/6 and I need help with a few things: Left o/s mirror inoperable (could it be the switch?) Fog lamps removed w/wires left intact; front driver and passenger windows work but make a creaking sound going down?

    Congrats on the new car! Does the right mirror work? If yes, it’s most probably the wiring or the mirror motor.For the Fog lamps, check this

    Hi Tony,I came accross your site 3 days ago purely by accident on google,I could not believe how thorough,easy to read and understand your article on cooling system was after spending £20 on a haynes which I found to be very vague and dissapointing.Ive had an E28 and E34 in the past and somehow managed to steer clear E36s branding them too in your face and associating them with show offs,deep inside I think I secretly liked them ?that was untill 2 months ago,now theres 3? in my household,black 1993 316,black 1996 318 and a calypso red 1999 320.I am now getting worried because I cant keep my hands of them and finding myself in the car port close to midnight fiddling.I have lots of questions for you and lots to share with all of you E36 fans.KEEP UP THE VERY GOOD WORK MATE.

    have to agree with paul. used to have a 97 M3 sedan. as soon as i drove it, i fell in love with it. when the car was totaled (by a now ex-friend), nothing i tested equaled the E36, so i decided to try the coupe. now im stuck on E36 M’s. thouroughly enjoy the blog, hopefully ill have something to add soon.

    First, thank you Tony for the wonderful job you’re doing here. Keep up the good work, I’m big fan of this site.

    My 328 is my third e36. First was 318i sedan, born in 1992, purchased in 2006. A little crappy and rusty but very reliable – never failed. I’ve got it until now and I use it as a backup. The second e36 was very nice black 328 but she lost her life protecting my wife and mom in an accident on a highway. We (my wife is also a BMW fan) couldn’t live long without a sound of m52b28 engine so after few months we purchased another 328i and we love it. We brought our car directly from BMW’s home city – Munich and It’s first owner was BMW GMBH itself 🙂

    Hi, I have just stumbled upon this site and saved it to my favourites. Keep it going everyone….

    After running a 5 series for 5 years I went and bought an M3 Evo two years ago and it’s great fun especially with the top down in the summer sun.

    Great site, I’ll be back….

    Bye for now

    Calypso Red ’97 328i 5 spd. 181K miles, some rust, but beautiful nonetheless. $2300 in Denver CO last week, picking it up Thursday10/7/10. Previously owned 87 E30 325i(‘2007), 89 E34 535i(2008). Regretting all the years I had an attitude about BMWs because of a few A-hole yuppies…
