    Welcome mate, e36's are smart just don't get a 1.9 4 cylinder engine you will regret it don't get me wrong it's still a bmw but you will be so much happier and have a lot more fun in the long run if you get a bigger litre even if you got to get a bit more cash together it's worth it

    Yer I think all us youngsters have insurance problems, obviously the higher litre you get the better but like I said if you need an extra few hundred to insure a higher litre seriously wait until you have the extra money, just try and get a 320 or upwards the 320 is a 2.2 litre which I have and then you can get a 323 and a 325 which are both 2.5 a 328 and 330 but not shore what litre they are, ring your insurance company with a few reg plates of all litres and see what the difference is and if they won't insure you ring around some other company's because there will be a company out there that will insure you on anything, have you actually asked your insurance company yet because if your just thinking it's going to be expensive these bmw's arn't actually bad on insurance also if you thought it would be cheaper by saying you want third party fire and theft it can actually be cheaper on fully comp obviously answer the quote questions correctly but just remember one question answered differently can change the price significantly they will try squeeze every penny out of you for stupid reasons I normally go on compare the market and see what prices are on there because you can get really cheap good company's

    Isn't it ridiculous that someone is old enough to be shot at but can't afford Insurance on a decent car because he's too 'young'. There should be a forces Insurance, where you can insure a V8 for £100 pa.
