Interesting replies but my question still remains, is the E36 a fun reliable sports car or will it be troublesome and costly?
I am not planning on autocrossing it but i have been a huge fan of F1 and CART racing for over a decade and i like to go for a spirited drive every once in a while. I used to own a new 94 325iS with ASC and I loved the free revving angine, snickety shifting and fun handling. I only had one unscheduled trip to the dealer (can't remember what for) but I remember needing brakes at 30K which cost me a wopping $700. I'm wondering if the costs for the upkeep for this car have changed over the last 6 years by getting OEM parts cheaply off the internet. Like I said, I would hope that I could do some of the work my self. I do not plan on modifying the car except for replacement shocks or clutch.
This will be a second car and not used as a daily driver.
Also, I am not into the status aspect of whatever sportscar I drive but I certainly want it to look nice after a wash and wax.
So the question remains, do you all enjoy driving your cars or are you constantly digging into your wallet for costly repairs?
