Another newbie from SoCal
I'm E36-centric, with a 328 and an M3. Actually I really like all BMWs from that era, but the E36 fills my needs. I love the way the M3 drives, and I got a manual trans 328 later for a daily driver. I do my own mechanical work, so it's nice having two cars mechanically the same so I get to apply what I learn twice.
So anyway, this is a great site and thanks to everybody who participates.
