Hey everyone. Right now i got a honda civic si that i desperately want to sell to get an e36 and had some questions. Of course the main car that i would want to get would be hte M3 but if i cant find one for my price range what are my other options. 328is or 325. I would like a 2 door and it would have to be a manual. Also how is the reliability of the e36 cars i would probbaly buy a 96 or 97. How long do they last etc.. Thanks

what is the difference between the 328 and the 325? is it the horsepower or other things

Not to mention you can find them with LSD! Plus they're cheap (mine was only $8k last month)

325 and 328 have almost same power 192/193bhp.

The enguine of the 328i is made of aluminium and has a bit more torque here in Europe (dunno if it is same in Amerika)

why not get an E30 and drop an M3 motor in? hella fast...costs less than a 328, and rapes E36 M3's

Here the 328 still uses the cast iron block, only the Z3 2.8 got the aluminum one. The torque difference is pretty large.
