In contrast, putting kids into the sedan or touring meant putting them in sideways, and doing all the buckles sideways.

(Now, we're about to have a third child... so now it's one E30 coupe, one Jetta TDI wagon, and one V70R. But I can assure you: up to two children are a cinch in an E30 coupe, so your E36 should pose no problems. Of course, it means you will have to live with spit-up, half-chewed food, cracker crumbs, little kid kick marks, etc. on your upholstery.)

But space-wise my friend, you're good to go!

You forget to mentioned the stroller, all the baby bags, grocery bags, shopping bags, My 5 series barely holds that stuff I can imagine an e30 or e36,
