1992 BMW 3 Series 318i 4dr Sedan

Review

The E36 M50 engines are reliable if you spend the money to get them that way... Before buying or shortly after, make sure to replace the plastic waterpump housing and the waterpump itself. The plastic used on both is prone to breaking and will overheat the car. Also, replacing the radiator and thermostat is a good thing to do if it has never been done before. The rear shock mounts will fail also. Replace these with E46 mounts. The ignition coils will need to be replaced also if they are original. Be sure to buy a car that has been serviced regularly. Transmissions should not be an issue, but the auto does have more failure than the manual.

Best Features

The acceleration, styling, modification possibilities, and certainly the handling.

Worst Features

The interior on these cars could use some work. The headliner, A and C pillar covers, and the door panels are my main problems.
