    Hi

    1 - Yes it is an E36

    2 - You can transfer the plate off via the DVLA - cost £105. Then contact internet based number plate companies and get them to bid for it (you can always get the offers first before paying to take it off

    3 - Should be a lever under the steering columb, pull it down, move wheel to desired position, push it back up (WARNING, DO NOT TRY THIS WHILE DRIVING!!!!!)

    HTH

    No problem.

    Do you intend to put a plate on it for yourself? If not I'd be tempted to leave that one on there, your likely to make no more than £100 from selling it and there's no harm in hiding the age of the car.

    Fair enough fella. Car looks nice but from the look of the picture I'd be spending the money on suspension.

    Welcome.

    Your car looks nice

    Reg transfers values are sadly pie in the sky...
    They are 'possible values' if the right person came along at the perfect moment!!

    To be honest I wouldnt bother taking the plate off...you will be very lucky to get £150 and with the cost of transfer its not worth it IMO.

    Also, as Dave says its a good age hider
