Rainbow Donovan's Daytona Violet E36 328i
Not long after I bought my first car, a E36 318iS, I got bored of it. Everyone said don't bother with a 4 cyl but I was concerned about fuel consumption.

In the end I decided stuff that I need an I6 in my lifeRollsmile

So the search began, eventually I found a fanatic selling a E36 Individual 328i Daytona Violet in colour, from the moment I saw it I loved it. Unfortunately my work has me out of the country more than I'm here.

I finally had some time and made arrangements specifically so that I could be in JHB the same weekend as the BMW 100 Year Celebration.

So I flew up and drove down without hiccups. The funny part is this car was orginally a Cape Town car. So it has now done the full circle and is now back home.

Many of you will recognise this car as Jody318is's (Jody)

Below are some pics of the beauty.

Thoroughly enjoying the car in the Cape Town air.

Big thanks to Jody for keeping the car for me for so long. Thumbs

RE: Donovan's Daytona Violet E36 328i
Buy that LSD in the parts FS section from ver328i immediately!
R3000 is a good price and it will be a direct bolt-on and give you a slight bump in acceleration too.
You don't have to go far to get it either.

win win win!
