Hello to all....new member here. Not exactly new to the BMW marque however after owning various E30's over the years.
Now the (not so) proud owner of an E36 316i Compact of 1995 vintage with its fair share of glitches to keep me occupied.
Seemed a good buy (Fleabay)...72k miles with a full MoT, 5 months tax and recent service, along with recent receipt for over £400 for work done.
Lady in question was 'sad to see it go' after 4 years ownership.
Anyway, it has an awful drone from the back end, suspected wheel bearing. Drivers electric window doesn't work, dash lights don't work, wipers are inconsistent and it has an intermittent but rather vicious steering wheel wobble (comes and goes when it likes..??).
Other than that I suppose its OK.......although I can't help but think BMW sacrificed their build quality with the E36 after the E30.
Hopefully I'll be able to sort these things out and report more positively in the future.
