1994 BMW 3 Series 318is 2dr Coupe


I got this car as a project with 219,000 miles a few months ago. I had to do a few things to it to get it back up to par mechanically, but with such high mileage, I was expecting that. It runs like a brand new car. The engine and transmission are still smooth, strong, and responsive. I wanted a manual transmission, but this automatic has proven itself a very worthy substitute. It is always in the right gear at the right time. It has a manual mode, but it is so well calibrated that I never need it. I am a college student with a 4 1/2 hour drive to school. I almost always drive non-stop and I never get out of the car sore. As comfortable as it is, it also handles like a true sports car

Best Features

Bulletproof inline 6, rear wheel drive, nearly perfect automatic, front legroom, separate temp controls for dash and floor/defrost vents, unrivaled steering feel, fuel economy, addictive exhaust note, resale value, classy styling still looks great

Worst Features

better adhesives on interior coverings, more low-end torque
