BMW'93 325i coupe - the thought crossing my mind when i first tested an e36, 2 years ago, was "the e36 325i coupe must've been a hell of a car back in its days". sporty, good-looking and very reliable, the 6cyl e36 offers a good value for its money. interior is plain "german", everything in place and handy, leather looks good and the driving position will satisfy anyone, with the seat's 4 different adjustements and adjustable steering wheel and the 8 speaker sound system will keep you entertained on long road trips. on the tech side, the german engineers did a great job: well balanced by the 51-49 weight distribution and sporty suspension, the car will corner fast and precise even at high speed, a thing that comes in very handy if we think that this car will do 0-100kmh in ~7 sec and will top out a decent 233kmh! gas milleage is somewhere around 30mpg, a decent number considering the 2.5 24 valves engine and the 192bhp that that need to be "fed". I rated this car 4, only compared to the latest models, but if i had to rate it in his "age-band", and compare it to '92-'99 cars, i would definitely rate it a 5+!
