1994 BMW 3 Series Coupe 318is 2dr Coupe


Review

I have owned the car since 1998 and it has never left me stranded, gets 36 mpg and handles as good as cars that cost 5 times as much! To sum it up, the car is worth much more than you end up paying for one.


Best Features

Handling is controlled and precise, brakes have great stopping power, and the mpg is always a plus.


Worst Features

Better more durable material for some of the exterior trim, clear paint protection for the front and lower parts of the paintwork.

Review

Bought this car at age 21 and drove it very hard. Original clutch lasted until 155k. No other problems other than typical wear and tear. Performed very well for a 1.8 litre. Drove a friends 325is with 100k less miles and the 318is is just as quick as long as you keep the RPM's up (the 325is did have a greater powerband). Comfy car, fun to drive, not the best in snow but made it through 4 winters with heavy snow never going into the ditch. 190k on it now and still getting average of 27.5 MPG driving in rush hour traffic. Engine is a little tired now but it still runs very well. Overall great car.


Best Features

Emergency toolbox in trunk, ease of using emergency jack to raise vehicle. Air sealing windows. Tight handling. German engineering.


Worst Features

A cupholder would be nice.

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!!!


Best Features

When it runs it handles OK


Worst Features

Reliability,parts cost,more power in all models
