I just pulled the trigger on a 323 ic. While I've had 8 BMWs, I've never owned a 3 series before.

I am amazed with the driving experience of this $5k car. It is the best driving BMW I've ever had, and it has more than 100,000 miles on it. The 2.5 liter motor pulls strongly and smoothly. The car is tight and handles incredibly.

The car is unbelievable. I'm looking forward to many miles of driving pleasure.

And if all that weren't enough, I was even able to get an "E36" personalized plate---I can't believe it was available.

Anyways, I'll be lurking around enjoying the E36 banter...thx
