Perfect sports sedan

1992 BMW 3 Series 318i 4dr Sedan
Review
Was, remains the first quintessential sports sedan. The unassailable benchmark. Superb in every performance and handling respect, except high speed sweepers. Lithe, tossable, and possible to drift & steer with a throttle, though its glue-like grip makes it necessary to speed to break away. Its flaws: a cheap looking interior much improved in later model years, and many flawed materials. Problems I have had in the first five years included a broken radiator tube; a leaky gas tank; a broken rear spring; a broken window lift; two leaky oil pan gaskets; inability to start due to plug fouling ; and, twice, loud exhaust due to total loss of muffler baffles.
Favorite Features
Handling, weather band radio, perfect instrumentation and Getrag transmission, power, breaking, ride, solidity of body.
Suggested Improvements
Better materials (see above).
