Good evening everyone,
I have been a member of the club for a couple of years, but this is my first post. I currently own an estoril blue E36, which I am currently undertaking a restoration of. When I purchased the car unfortunately the service history had been lost. So basically I am trying to piece together any information I can about her, she had a bmw car club sticker on the rear window when I brought her. So I am hoping someone on here remembers owning her, or knows someone who did. The registration number is N17 ELY, and the last seven of the chassis number are EA88335.
Any information will be greatly appreciated

Hi Martyn,
Who, where did you purchase the car? perhaps this is your starting point and work back.  Did you receive any paperwork, MoT certs, receipts with the car?

Appreciate it could sound like a long shot but I would phone BMW UK. If you give them the chassis number they will tell you if they recognise the car. I did this last year for a 2005 M5. Basically they can tell you if the car has been in to any of there dealerships and which ones / on what dates but just can't give any details of what work / service was undertaken.
At this point you can phone the individual dealerships for information, I purchased a new service book and the dealers stamped them up,I also received printed reports of what work had been undertaken on the car.

Obviously it will depend on how long the previous owners used a BMW dealership for servicing etc but you never know you might get a few years worth of history.

Hope this helps - good luck!

It looks like your M3 has had very gentle use over the last decade. It is likely it has been looked after by an independant specialist. Look up the address of the previous owner from the V5C, google M3 specialists in the area and make a few calls.
