    Hi Kevin!

    Welcome to the group. We spent 2 years looking for Bev's M3 and have greatly enjoyed it since bringing it into the herd.

    Find a BMW mechanic that comes recommended and have her/him check it out to make sure the promised maintenance was performed correctly.

    Hey Kevin! Great to have you on board.

    You are going to love the car! If they are properly maintained and cared for, they will last forever and will just keep giving you whatever you ask of them. I've got almost 145K on my '95 and a lot of that is track and autocross miles but the car still runs like a top and is as happy driving down to the corner for a gallon of milk as it is ripping down the front straight at Texas World Speedway at 125 MPH. My wife's daily driver is a '98 M3 sedan and she absolutely loves that car as well. (if you couldn't tell, I have a special place in my heart for the E36 M3!).
    Let us know when you get the car and post some pics. Like TeamStowell said though, get it checked out and make sure it HAS been properly maintained. As wonderful as these cars can be, if they have been neglected, you could be looking at some hefty repair costs to get it back where it needs to be.

    I bet if I joined the club some people could direct me to some really good mechanics in the area. For peace of mind I would like to have a good mechanic do most of the wrenching on this car at first then I could do some stuff.

    I really appreciate both these post, the last one was inspiring and I appreciate it.

    To have that kind of power at hand after so many years with a 318ti will be like a shot of Viagra to the old chap.

    Those e36 are so much nicer to look at than a 46. I think my car could be in some shows even. It has been babied and even claybarred. The owner said the only time he took it to 6000 rpms is when he went to 135 once in California.
