    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    I've spent the last week torturing myself as to whether to MOT my E36 or not. I've decided to do it, partly because it'd be worth more for PX with an MOT...but mostly because I love the car, as impractical as it might be living on the Yorkshire Dales! Given the condition of my car (pretty good...
