This is interesting. Your car was made for the January shipment to the BMW stealership for the year of 96, obviously. However, I thought the facelift didnt happen until 4/96 in production. I thought I confirmed this with the parts car, as the production date on that was 3/96 and it had the pre facelift grilles on it, but now I'm intrigued...

Sidemarkers started before OBDII

I think whenever we start these conversations about production dates and features on E36s, we only discover one thing: IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE

QFT. I think there were a total of 6 or 7 different window switches. Ridiculous
