Totally agree with Dabs......Ive had my 323ci dyno/remapped by EvolveAutomotive and its some of the best money Ive spent as it now pushes out more power than a 328 by about another 10bhp They are also BMW remap specialists so im glad I went to them rather than going the 'chipping' route (no offence to those that have) But its down to personal choice and budget
OBD 1 or OBD2 plusshowing Error on fault code reader???
Thanks for that Oh Lord...lol
But how can you tell wether you have an OBD1 or an OBD2?
I drive a 12/92 E36 325i couple and its great, i love her to bits.
Had all the chassis/subframe reinforcement done last year as the
bushes were ripping out of the floor, seems quite a popular problem pre 95?
Anyway, i got a guy round with his code readers and mine kept showing Error.
We couldnt get a reading at all after many attempts.
Could he have been using the wrong reader even though he tried a couple,
or do you think it could be something else?
Im about to check to see if i have a flooded compartment where the software is
and im expecting water as after a thorough car wash im getting the infamous wet floor areas too....arrrggghhhh
Any advice would be deeply appreciated?

Pre 1995 is OBDI, and post 1995 is OBDII. My 1998 is OBDII.
Check all the window and door seals. The water is coming in either from a clogged drain hole from the roof, or your seals are cracked and worn. The pre-97 E36's were notorious for clogged drains which could cause damage to DME resulting in the car not starting. Its inherintley known that you shold never take a pre 97 E36 through an automatic car wash without checking the drains first.
If he plugged in a code reader it should show a specific code, not just "Error". Odds are te code reader wasn't working properly, or something else. Autozone scans them for free and uses a good quality scanner.
