This car still presents well in its factory specification colour of Estoril Blue, in keeping with the cars age, there are some small areas of bubbling starting to emerge on some arches and the boot lid. If you know your E36's well this is a common issue and unless previously attended to you can expect all cars of this age and mileage to suffer the same issue. A good opportunity here to add value to this car.

In keeping with the cars age and mileage the interior is showing signs of wear. A good clean and maybe having the leather treated would bring this car back to life, a chance here to add more value to this car.

Having benefited from a recent Vanos overhaul the engine in this example pulls strongly across the full rev range.
