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 **********

  • 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.
