Hi there,
I'm not really new but haven't been on for years.
I bought my E36 316i saloon about ten years back and did quite a few basic things to it (heated mirror wiring, auto dimming mirror, centre console armrest, etc etc) using info obtained from this very forum!
For the last couple of years or so it's been sat in my garage collecting dust (and a wasps nest!) after failing its last MOT. Now that I have a bit more time on my hands (kids are older) I have a plan to fix it up, get it looking smart and fix up the sound system and use it as a summer runabout, it'll never be a showpony or speed-demon but as long as it looks half decent and works i'll be happy. I know its only a 316i but I just think the E36 is a class looking car!
I'm probably going to have a few daft questions to ask about various bits and bobs which the Haynes manual and youchoob can't answer so please be patient :-)
I'm currently running an E46 320ci as my daily so will be dipping into the E46 section also as I have a couple of things that I need to sort on that too!

Welcome back that man!! It's begining to get so that any new or returning members are likely to be stuffed, put in glass case and hung on the forum walls as a trophy!

316i or not, it's an E36 and they need to be saved. Keep us updated and good luck.
