ah - sorry - misread your message.
The E36 was known to have some quality/design issues. E46 was much better and E90 improves on the overall design (although adding weight)
Not a big fan of cars gaining so much weight. Buddy of mine still has his e36 M3 and its a great driver's car... Feels like a go-cart compared to the e90
