    Hi guys, I am new here but not new to BMW's. I have had several E30's and E36's over the last 10 years. My current motor is a 1998 E36 328 sport individual. Despite having it for over a year I still cannot find any decent pictures of it apart from the original autotrader ad!

    The car is individual velvet blue 328 sport with an alusil linered block. It is one of the highest spec E36's I have seen and has electric leather seats, PDC's, cruise control, sunroof as well as dual zone climate, electric rear windows etc!

    I have not modified the car yet as I have spent more time trying to get the car upto my standards. However, I have fitted a DIY LPG install on it which I have been running since January. I also have an LSD to go on but I think I will get it reconditioned first.

    I look forward to sharing opinions on all things E36 related with you guys.

    Hi, thanks for the welcome. Only the early 328 sports had a LSD fitted. The later sports had an open diff and asc.

    Welcome to the forum Ian S, You are indeed correct about the diff, Any larger e36 BMW with ASC doesn't have a Slipper
