Bmw E36, A Great Driver — The E36 BMW M3 is an iconic vehicle, it handles well and keeps up with most vehicles from that era. Its great for a weekend track day or driving it around town and with the reliability of the inline six cylinder it wont leave you stranded!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Well balanced car, great handling, great sounding engine

Cons: Could use more power

Great M3 — Car is really fun to drive, faster than the newer "muscle cars". I originally wanted a 68' Camaro, but couldn't get a standard car loan for a car older than 81'. Somehow I ended up with a 1998 M3 after looking at Ws6's, GTOs, and early 2000's Camaros. In the end, I am glad I chose this car. I haven't seen another one quite like it in the 6 years I've owned it. I also have a newfound respect for the quality of machine BMW makes. I would be hard-pressed to buy any other brand after owning my M3.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Reliable, fast, fun, wouldn't buy anything other than a BMW after owning this car.

Cons: BMW parts and service are more expensive than an average car

You Can't Get Better Than This — this has to be one of the best cars you could ever buy even though it's 13 years old it will still out perform most of the new hot hatches without any problem. The only problems you will find is it drinks fuel and BMW dealer servicing can be a bit costly but it's well worth it

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: the look of my car always makes me smile

Cons: fuel costs

Love It... —

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Performance, looks, great in the summer, love it..

Cons: Nothing really, like the whole package. If you buy a car like this you don't worry about costs, but they can be high if it goes wrong!!

Fun To Drive, Top Up Or Down. Good Build Quality — I love this car! it was my 1st car when i got my license. I haven't had any major problems with this car, aside from the water pump issue which plagued the E36 3-Series. It still has great pick- up for its age.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Everything about his car is great!

Cons: none (aside from the water pump)

A Great Car Through And Through But Not For The Feignthearted Or Economists — I love this car because you feel very young, almost like the time when you first got into the out run game at the fair and thought you were really driving. Performance is fantastic but if you drive hard it drinks hard, very hard. Build quality is very good, it is German after all. I personally like the minimilistic look of the E36 interior but it may not suit everyone. Not as expensive to run as i thought it would be, some parts are expensive but some are suprisingly good value. for me this is deffinately a very fun car to drive but go that little bit too hard and it will bite you!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun, sexy and will make you smile from ear to ear. Plus it's a proper head turner too.

Cons: Losing your license is very probable if you can't tame your right foot
