The BMW E36 series is the third generation of the BMW 3 Series range of entry-level luxury cars, and was produced from 1990 to 2000. The E36 was the first 3 Series to be offered in a hatchback body style. These models, called the BMW 3 Series Compact, were popular in Europe but largely unsuccessful in North America. It was also the first 3 Series to be available with a 6-speed manual transmission in the 1996 M3. The E36 M3 was released in 1992 and was available in coupé, saloon and convertible body styles.
This lovely example in BMW Titan Silver metallic comes with black leather interior and a black electric hood. These are now very much in demand and with added extras such as air conditioning, parking sensors and cruise control, this particular E36 is no exception to the rule of desirability. It also has the diamond cut alloys which are in great condition and the car comes with its original handbook and a large file of invoices. Many reckon that these models have reached a cult status amongst the BMW enthusiasts and this is mirrored in their demand.
