1994 BMW 3 Series 318i 4dr Sedan


Review

I have owned this vehicle as second owner (bought 2 years used with 20,000km). Have only two complaints. Firstly when engine is hot (riding around for several hours in summer heat) car shakes in first gear... starts smoothly directly from 2nd at a red light with a little longer cluth action. Electrical should improve - lights out often. Funny I still like it.

Suggested Improvements

should not make 4 cylinders for the weight of the vehicle.... 6 is a must!

Review

These cars are ticking time bombs. Watch out!!!! I've owned mine for less than a year and has cost me $2000 in parts alone with me doing all of the repairs myself and has been off the road for 4 months. I checked the car over with a fine tooth comb before buying and still have the problems. I should've boughten a Chevy!!!

Review

With an automatic, stock tires and rims this Bimmer is the ultimate pig. My Honda Accord wagon is more fun. At 90,000 miles it creaks and groans like a reluctant old door. My girlfriend does look good in it though! Not up to my expectations of a BMW,


Favorite Features

Body design, color, practical size


Suggested Improvements

Less Germanic severity, smoother, more powerful 4 cylinder engine. A little more sumptuous luxury.

Review

I bought the car and for 7,000 and have put about that much if not more into it in the 3 years I have owned it. I don't drive it hard but I have had to basically rebuild the engine. That was fun. The interior has completely fallen apart door panels won't stay on no matter what I do. It's super fun to drive and looks good on the outside but everything inside kinda blows.


Favorite Features

Driving, looks.


Suggested Improvements

Make better door panels and make it not break down after 10 odd years.
