I just bought my first car, a E36 316i Touring in manual.
I got it because:
I needed an estate for moving things to and from university.
I needed cheap insurance.
I wanted a good handling, manual car that would teach me about RWD control.
I go mountain biking in the Alps (french part, Les Gets) in summer and wanted air conditioning.
There are a couple of problems however (and if moderators could suggest the forums I could post these in, i would be grateful).
1. There is a audible 'buzz' and similar vibration through the brake pedal just before coming to a complete stop. It sounds like its coming from the rear left wheel. The seller told me it could be a dirty abs sensor and the buzz is the abs activating?
2. One of the headlights has alot of condensation in it and is almost always completely misted up.
3. The top 2/3 bars (orange lines) of the rear view window de-mister has failed.
4. There were no instructions for the radio/cassette and I have no idea what some of the buttons do! (picture below)
But overall I am pleased with my first impressions of the car. Look forward to getting to know this forum.
Thanks for you time and I look forward to any responses,
