Re: Favorite e36 M3 muffler/rear section?

Stromung is the best for quality, sound and budget.

Eisenmann is the best you can buy, but you'll pay a lot for it and it's a two piece cat back.

Supersprint is overrated, sorry.

Re: OEM Alpine Complete Alarm Systems w/ FOBs

Thank you too, Ryan!

The remote cases and buttons are new (China reps of course). They look good, my only gripe is the injection molding hot spot on the faces. A minor complaint though.

Yes, double clutch if the trans is at fault.

Re: To mod or not

Buy OEM clears. Don't mess around with aftermarket junk. You have a $35k car, you can afford $300 for a complete new OEM lens set.

Re: Help decoding repair history

Not a recall, but yes, that is what that means. You’re missing the mileages. Rod bearings are not one and done. Every 60-120k miles they are due (oil reports may +\- that).

Re: Unknown part

Removing power on the MS41 does nothing. No resets occur other than readiness monitoring.

It’s a 96. That would be Techno Violet. It’s also not Alcantara, it is Amaretta. D8AT interior code.

Re: Changed lower chain tensioner - still noisy?

Chain tensioners, inside the engine.



You likely need to rebuild the VANOS. If you have owned more than one E36, you should already know this. Beisansystems.com
