That is pretty, but you're gonna be missing the E36 and you know it Steven. (Yes, some still remember you )

Looks purdy Steven. Congrats! Must be a hell of a difference when you hit the gas compared to the 318!

I guess you're doing pretty well financially then! Congrats. I definitely thought about getting a modern 3 series, but saving the money for the X5 ended up being the decision for me. Enjoy those upcountry roads!

I love when people get satisfaction in trashing people's cars. Get a life dude, fo realz. As a former e36 owner, I can say that you're really in no position to be bashing someone's new car; the e36 has plenty of its own faults.

And the N52 is one of the most reliable engines in the current line up. Slow, sure, but reliable.

i still have it, debating on what to do with it. its not worth a whole lot, and idk if it would be worth it to sell it. the whole suspension system (bushings to springs) is pretty much new, but that means little on resale. interior is typical e36, so i am debating just gutting it and tracking/autocrossing it rather than the e92

if it owes you nothing then keep it, youll regret getting rid of it for what people will offer you,
