The BMW E36 - For years this car suffered from… let’s just call it ugly middle child syndrome. It was sandwiched between the more desirable E30 and the faster, prettier E46. And because the E36 was in that weird unloved middle zone, it started to get really cheap, which is exactly why you see so many of them used as drift cars and track toys today. So today, we are gonna talk about what makes the E36 an ALMOST PERFECT project car. The E36 is rocking The VANOS-having-inline-6-cylinder and maybe more importantly is has **********

  • e30 well legend, who had it will stick to it. 'Ones that sold theirs are looking to buy one now. E36 is close, but in the better price range right now - the last call. E46 is what the two mentioned before was couple years ago...great car but unapricieted, cheap, become simply a meme generator right now, only the top spec versions are holding up nice - E90 well it's garbage. Europe situation ofcourse

  • HIgher temperature better emissions, not the other way around... when you recirculate exhaust gases the temperature goes up and you burn any residual fuel left in the exhaust hence the better emission, not because it's cooler.

  • Had a M50 E34, the vanos is total junk and the older M20 engine you find in early E34s and E30s are a lot more fun with their momentum and their amazing sound, M50s are reliable, but sound boring.

    AdrianAdrian20 giorni fa
  • As an e36 owner, I don’t get why you would put any effort into talking about their engines from the perspective of a project car. An M3 isn’t much faster than a Mustang GT which isn’t much faster than a friggin Jeep Cherokee 4.0HO. Either enjoy the slow af M50/2 or swap the dang thing for an LS. Bonus with the LS swap: you’re obligated to connect it to a Tremec which won’t have BMW’s stupid “are you sure you want this gear? Maybe you’d rather be in neutral?” notch before the shifter is fully in gear.

  • agreed. my first car at 16 was a e36 5speed 318i then at 18 i got a e36 328is 5speed that shared the same factory ZF trans with the e36 M3 I modded it with like an exhaust clutch flywheel all of that, and cooked the m52 when a rock put a hole through the oil pan then I swapped in the s52 from the e36 M3 and did the old m50 manifold. injectors. intake, and tune. and exploded that after playing soccer all day in the city with some Europeans, money shifted it in Philly coming home at like 110 units of speed or something into 2nd gear, and it became a 5 cylinder s52. then I got bored of all that and just bought an e46 M3, and im on my 2nd one now at 30. e36 is still sitting parked at my parents house with a cooked s52, bilstein pss9 coilovers, and stuff if anyone wants it

  • Ok so the VANOS system is only a variable cam phaser system and not at all like what was shown. It doesn’t change valve lift like VTEC, and isn’t the same as VTEC. VTEC gives you 2 different cam profiles and no variable phasers. VANOS gives you variable phasers and no cam profile changes. While VTEC does adjust valve timing, it’s solely though using a new cam profile and not because of variable phasers. The i-VTEC system does use variable phasers in addition to the variable cam profiles.
