325ix Ultimate All Season

1991 BMW 3 Series 318is 2dr Coupe


This is a great All Wheel Drive car. Legendary reliability, great aftermarket and club support. The parts market is relatively inexpensive and pieces are easy to find either new or used. The front drive bits are a little rare and not cheap should they need to be replaced. Outside of that most of the parts are standards from the long-lived E30 series of 325's. It's a bit slower than the regular 325i, but it more than makes up for that small deficiency in handling on wet and/or snowy surfaces. In the winter it puts nearly every other all wheel drive vehicle on the road in the rear view mirror. I would strongly suggest bringing any car this old to a good shop to check it over before buying.

Best Features

The AWD system is excellent, Great handling, Good sized trunk, Ski pass thru rear seat, Great engine

Worst Features

Cup holder, A little more power to make up for the extra weight of the AWD, but that's what the aftermarket is for!
