1994 BMW 3 Series 318i 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this car new. I can't believe it's 15 years old... still has power, fun to drive has never missed a beat and has 219000 miles on it... only had to change a water gasket and an instrument pod... still has original shocks exhaust head lights... have knocked out a couple of fog lights down thru the years... it gets 30+ mpg on the interstate... great fun... hate to think of trying to replace it... a truly great automobile.

Review

I bought this vehicle on a "whim". I needed a car quickly and found this beautiful white 318i and for 1500 I couldn't refuse. Great car, very tight, great handling, love the manual transmission, and sunroof. Gas mileage is great, fill up once a week, however with current gas prices it's about 50 bucks to fill. My friends love the car, interior is PERFECT, however would have loved a bit more room. Overall great car for being 14 years old!!


Best Features

Sunroof, 5 speed, one touch up/down windows, gas mileage, and overall design.


Worst Features

MORE POWER, a V6 definitely needed! A bit more room, interior somewhat "bland", and CUPHOLDERS!!!! I know the germans don't feel like we need em' but we sure do!

Review

This is my third 318i and I Iove them. This car is fun to drive and as well as dependable. This car gets great gas mileage and I usually only fill up once or twice a month. If you find one of these cars pick up. They are expensive to keep up, but as long as you take care of it, it will take care of you.


Best Features

I love the sunroof, the body design, handling, orange lights on the dash at night. The multi color dashboard and interior


Worst Features

NONE

Review

When I first got this car, I hated it because it was a manual and I had a hard time learning. However, once I learned it I loved it, and I became a car enthusiast. I also now love bmw, although it has given me some problems.


Best Features

The central console of the windows. Auto up/down window feature. Dual climate control.


Worst Features

The dual climate control knobs do not have lighting so you can't really see what temperature you set it at in the dark.

Review

This car has 150k miles, it's automatic and I get 30 mpg hwy. Everything still works, it's fast, reliable and great looking but most of all, the handling of this car exceeds everything I've ever driven. I will never own another make of automobile than BMW. New or used, BMW is your best bet for economy, resale, reliability and pleasure.


Best Features

The motor is a work of art. The styling great, but the handling is truly ultimate. Electrical connectors are stout.


Worst Features

Improve moulding trim fasteners, tighten interior panels.
