Here's the new baby in our family (my fiancee's car), a 1991 E36 BMW 318i.

I gave her a polish and took some pics yesterday, here's a couple:













And one with the flash on to show off the shiny paint!




Absolutely loving the car so far.
Sam

Haha... good to see another bimmer on the site... me and hak aren't the only one's anymore...

Yeah... not really much of a comparison between a bimmers handling and a commodore is there? :p

Only down site to them is servicing costs and spare parts...

But as long as its not breaking down... all sweet!

What are your plans for it?

hehe yeah I see why you two love them now. No comparison whatsoever to Aussie cars. No plans of any significance really, Sami's keeping this one nice and stock-ish until we can upgrade her to a 6cyl E36, maybe even an M3, sometime in the next few years.

Nah not yet, interior nothing special really, pretty well base model BMW. All in good condition but no leather, no power windows.

I looked at an E36 318i before I got the liberty, manual with sunroof, 1997 model. It was ok to drive, but god awfully slow and the reciepts for repairs did not exactly inspire confidence (the radiator was over $500) so I left it.

They're a great looking car though for the time and they look newer than they are as they kept that shape for so long and then the next shape was not much of a dramatic change. So the look is still quite modern for an 18 year old car.
