is there any difference between 320 ratios and other e36's. 320's are very reliable. I haven't had a prob with mine since I got it. I'm planning on getting a chip soon. I heard Mark D's chips do wonders for the 320's

I also heard that the 320's are good . my buddies got one and has no problems with it , go for it

Wow, that is a good lookin car, too bad it does not have an extra .5 or .8 of power

Remember there isn't much aftermarket support for it.

Get a 318i and do the DASC! I'm gonna do that with mine.

I agree. 320's are great cars but if your looking at racing forget it. They are good on gas also. I've had no problems with the car either. 320's have better gear ratio's compared to 325's from what I have heard.

Not looking to race at all, just want a nice mint little BMW, that I can afford to drive around all the time. thats all.

In that case the 320i is the perfect car!

It looks like a nice car, it is neat because there isn't to many e36 320i's out there.....
I am a much bigger fan of the e36 320i as opposed to the e46 320i.....Budd's BMW gave me one as a rental when the 323is was in for a service overnight and I was VERY VERY DISAPOINTED!:puke:

Yours is an E46 and the difference is about 20hp and of course the body style etc etc......

Well, there's nothing 'bad' about the 320i. If you're a horsepower hound then this car wont suit your needs. Aside from that its a great car . I've owned one for about 5 years and all I've replaced is the clutch and of course the pesky plastic impeller water pump which almost everyone has to do, depending on year of manufacture. No other problems to report. Car's been great and has no problems keeping pace and holding its own on the highway. ..................................:P

That a sweet car!!! Man I would be get it, or at least look at it. I'm not a huge 4 door fan but that one looks really good.*th-up*
