These machines are very solid. Unfortunately many of us have bought used E36 and their previous owners may have not maintained it the way they are meant to be. If they are well kept then you will have alot less headaches with it. All cars are susceptible to wear and tear but our parts do cost a bit more than an average vehicle. Plus all your going to see are problems with peoples cars on these forums because that's what the forums are meant for. 99% of us will stand by our cars and say it's worth every dime to own the ultimate driving machine
