door latches being hard to open
computer or check control throwing false annoying messages(once in a while)
bubbling door panels(most likely someone messed with the window motor and unsealed the vapor shield)
Squeaky clutch pedal
False fuel gage readings after a fillup(make sure you leave the key in the off position when filling)
Sticking float in gas tank(not allowing a total fillup)
Overall these are rare mildy annoying problems with the E36. I love them still.
I am thinking of purchasing an E36 M3, most likely a 95 for modability. I have never owned a BMW, and I am wondering how reliable this particular model would be, since it would be my daily driver. Common problems, weak points, etc? Thanks for the advice.
