    Default Techno 36

    Picked this up about a month ago now... Was sick of my Audi a4 falling apart and its array of lights on the dash. Was also sick of driving a boring diesel!

    So an ad for this popped up on a Facebook group, and it really caught my eye. Hadn't planned on changing cars yet, and certainly not an e36, but i said I'd inquire about it for the laugh. Next thing I know i had organised to go see it that evening




    Car didn't have test, so I went cautiously. But when I saw the car, it looked like a good one. A few things were a little off putting to me... non-sunroof, grey leather (since has grown on me hugely), OBC wasn't working, no test... but when I drove it, my mind was made up It was so smooth on the road. It had some Bilstein suspension with lowering springs... Thinking B8s and Eibach springs maybe... But it handled beautifully and put a smile on my face down the back road after nearly a year of the A4 whaleyness.

    So i took a chance on it.. It was my favourite e36 colour and i loved genuine staggered motorsports










    Met up with a buddy of mine after with an Avus blue 318is on Style 66s... His is a little lower ha


























    Wheels were very clean






    And new tyres

    `



    The plan was to test it and just drive it for a while. A cheap run about while i sold the Audi and a bit of fun... Well the cheapness went out the window very quickly with some new wheels





    More pics to come once I have them uplaoded

    Looks very well--good luck with it.You don't see too many of these about. Think the Motorsport wheels look very classy and don't know why you would want to change them.

    Its a bit different to an e30 alright... more comfortable, but handles fairly similer I've found. Its a little heavier so you feel a bit more planted... also better breaks, ABS, and traction control make it a different experience. And more forgiving!

    Yeah i'd love a 6 pot myself... 325 or 328i. I have a 328i running gear in the shed im tempted swap in. But for now, the m44 is by no means slow, and not bad on fuel for daily driving... especially with the mileage I do from Clare to Dublin or Cork every week
