Of course, you can't compare it to the E92. But trust me, I drive both every single week, and I still enjoy both of them.
And I owned my 1998 E36 since day 1 , and there weren't any cars back then that compared to it.
Definitely not for the price. It was relatively a low price increase (US market) over the 325i, and it was a fantastic car. A good friend of mine has a 97 with the 3.2 (had it since day 1) and it now has 200K miles, and still going strong. It's a fantastic car, with good torque and great balance. I also love the E36 IP.
