Goodbye E36 folks! For now at least

Hey Guys, ended up selling my mint 328is. Miss her every day, but I couldn't afford to keep up with her. Just put so much into it recently and still needed more work, small electrical issues were getting worse, clutch was going, coilovers were beat, and I honestly wouldn't be happy until it had a whole new interior, s52 swap, clutch, audio setup (mine barely croaked), all new m pieces throughout, and found the damn wobbles, etc etc etc. It didn't make sense to do it to this car, rather just buy and M and call it a day after a few basic mods (which is bs because its an addiction). But I was so deep into a car that just wasn't worth any more money, and I kept looking at the pics of my old E30's and regretting selling them. So the time came, sold the car, paid off my credit cards and a small loan then leased a new BMW i3. Didn't expect that, did you? lol. But the plan is to drive this i3 for a little while (won't believe what i pay a month) then save up and buy another E30 with an S52 swap or E36 M3. Not sure yet. Leaning towards E30 though. But I appreciate the year of advice, help, and savings from fixing bs things myself (Purge valve sensor tap was a quick fix that the dealer said was vanos going or a rod tap, hahahah). Thanks again guys, the knowledge here is astounding, I owe allot of beers at Bimmerfest!

p.s. I might post a lil about my i3 on here if there is any interest, cheers!

You don't have to own an E36 to be part of the E36 family!

I'd like to hear about the i3, as long as I don't have to look at it.
