New to this forum although long standing member of other BMW forums (5 series).
Just purchased a 2000 E36 328i Mtec manual in Avus Blue with genuine 17" Alpinas. Only done 80000 miles. Some fettling to do including removing the Alpina badge!!
My daily is a 2003 E39 530i Individual which cost £43000 at purchase to its then owner - bought in Feb 2013 with 42000 miles, now up to 48000. Prior to that had an E39 525d Sport touring manual for almost 9 years!
Also many years ago ex owner of 318is coupe (E36), 330d touring (E46), 316 (E21)
So likely to be in contact relating to the E36!
