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.


Best Features

feel


Worst Features

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

Review

I purchased my 1994 BMW 318i used with
135,000 miles on it. It is a solid car
with the basic amenities and teutonic
interior styling.
The quality of the car is excellent and
it is still tight as new. The gas
mileage is great and it is virtually
maintenance free.
Only Problem I've had is the idle valve
was faulty, but was easily replaced by
the dealer for $400.00.
The engine has no leaks and engine runs
smooth and the car handles great.
I have learned over the years parts are
not as pricey as you would think
compared to regular cars. Insurance is
reasonable as well. I totally recommend
a 3 series to anyone looking for a pre-
owned Bimmer that is budget priced.


Best Features

Auto up/down feature on power windows and the integrated invisible antennea. Also, the dual climate control temp settings.


Worst Features

Audio system upgrade with in dash CD option.

Review

Runs like a top after 135000 trouble
free miles. Fun to drive but a little
uncomfortable on long drives. The
interior has worm very well, looks like
it is only a couple of years old, not
9. The exterior too - it sat out for 5
years before we got our garage and it
still looks great. Only the molding
around some of the windows is looking a
little weathered. Great car for the
money. HOpe to drive it another 9
years.


Best Features

The car still feels tight when driving it after 9 years.


Worst Features

Better seats. I wish I had gotten seats with more support.

Review

I have loved BMW's for all of my life.
My parents bought this car for me with
130,000 miles!!! I added newer factory
wheels, wood trim, cd player, and
floor mats. I love this car. Everyone
at my high school wants to ride in it.
It is fun and very reliable. The
leather is great. Looks new. No
problems. Great gas mileage. Fold down
rear seats. Very good handeling.


Best Features

Body Style, handeling, gas mileage, fold down rear seat.


Worst Features

NONE

Review

This is a fun car! It makes people
turn their heads. I just recently put
new BMW factory wheels on mine to make
it look newer. This car has great
handling. It is very reliable and I
have had no major problems. Overall it
is a cool car. Electronics need some
work. The car is weak when the air
conditioner is on and when its cold.


Best Features

Handling, fold down rear seat, body style,


Worst Features

Better looking wheels, better air conditioning system (not much air flow)
