Hi just registered so just saying hello.
I recently bought a lovely e36 323i coupe. I've fallen in love with the car and that gorgeous straight six!
I can't believe how well it goes for a 2.5 and "detuned" to 170bhp!
Is this normal for it once you get to about 4000rpm it seems to take off! Is that the vanos doing their magic?
It's a little bit thirsty coming from a golf tdi but they're awful round corners etc.
I've had an e46 320d touring but got rid of it as I was a bit worried about the swirl flaps and breather issues.
Also had an e39 530i on lpg but the auto box went. That was a fabulous refined car.
