    1. Too bloody noisy. Stupid Germans from yesteryear should have fixed the cabin noise or included a Harman Kardon or Bang & Olufsen sound system in the car together with all the peripherals, for free.
    2. Trigger happy rear. Swings around like its a friggin station wagon, usually without a chance of return la. Original ARBs too small.

    Maybe I'm lucky I don't know. But I haven't encountered any of the issues besides the pillar covers.

    If you ask me about quality, I would say the E36 beats a lot of other cars of its age hands down.

    Having own one before, I do not think the E36 is lacking anything when compared to cars of its generations.

    In terms of engine specs, the E36 was way ahead of its time. Think about it, the 325 has 192bhp when it was introduced here in late 93/94. Which other cars have similar hp? It is also the first BMW to have multi-link suspension, as compared to the E34 and E32 at that time.

    In the later 328, it comes with dual climate digital air con controller, ASC and etc.

    In terms of parts, there are aplenty and it is still a great daily car in my opinion :)

    Cheers

    For a car and technology at it's time and after all the fixing, the only think I find lacking is a rear aircond vent. The vent under the front seat are usually block by the carpet. Body roll, there are aftermarket parts available to rectify this.

    Bro E36 is a driver car so the German never thought about the passanger and the child.
    They only know how to satisfy the DRIVER....:rock::rock:

    I saw the owner's handbook page 26 Childproof safety locks wrote that - (Insert the master key in the slot on a rear door (inside lock panel) and turn towards the outside:The door can now only be opened from the outside) - unfortunately mine doesn't work.
