The BMW E36 - For years this car suffered from… let’s just call it ugly middle child syndrome. It was sandwiched between the more desirable E30 and the faster, prettier E46. And because the E36 was in that weird unloved middle zone, it started to get really cheap, which is exactly why you see so many of them used as drift cars and track toys today. So today, we are gonna talk about what makes the E36 an ALMOST PERFECT project car. The E36 is rocking The VANOS-having-inline-6-cylinder and maybe more importantly is has **********

E46 is basically an e36 with more weight, fragile subframe and no limited slip from the factory, unless it's an overpriced m3. I'll stick with my squirrely e30 haha

Sorry, but vtec and vanos is by ar not the same. Vtec phisicaly makes the in/ex valve go deeper, and longer in to the cilinder when activated. vanus, vvti, adjust the TIMING when to open(they dont open for longer, or deeper in to the cilinder). Valvetronic would be the same principle as vtec, but without mechanicaly moving parts and more electronics.

As a person from europe who owns an E36, they aren't overlooked, they are more desirable than the E46, and to an extent, the E90, and you don't want "German VTEC" (VANOS) because its unreliable and the older engines are more durable.

Vanos is not the same like vtec my friend, only vtec is different to vanos because it's not variable camshaft, it's variable valve lift.... The i-vtec is variable valve lift and cam 😎✌️

You cant say it was overlooked for decades. One of the most popular cars in europe in the 90s. I wish they were just a little bit more reliable but they are still pretty decent

Every European gopnik knows that e36 is much better than e46. Its lighter and handles much better than the e46 tank. Actually, I bet that in few years everyone will be on e82 because it resembles much of e36’s characteristics with a reasonable amount of modern technologies that don’t ruin the fun of driving.
