My name's Fe and I'm entirely new to owning a BMW (as of last week!). I now have a 1996 316i E36 which I really like due, in part, to the charming quirkiness of having both a 1.6l engine and a spoiler!

Unfortunately, due to an incredible level of bad luck, my car managed to blow a head gasket within 30 miles and duly came 500 miles home from Scotland on a tow truck. As everything else is in perfect working order and I'd already got far too attached to the car (now named Stella), I thought I'd better join a forum and find out how to fix it!

Any advice you can give on the switching head gasket v entirely new engine decision, and the process for both, would be incredibly appreciated! I'm determined to get it going and to fix it myself, just need to work out how :)
