This has been the best car! I bought it for myself, then my wife took it from me, then when our son turned 16 guess what? he took it. Great car for him. Handling is awesome!! Power is great and so is gas mileage!! No problems with this car, actually looking to buy another one in North Carolina. It now has over 235,000 miles and I wouldn't be afraid to drive it across country tomorrow.

Purchased this car with 19000 miles on the clock. Have meticulously maintained since. Only significant repair was replacement of the ball joints around 100K. Other than that, only routine maintenance, brakes, tires, tune-ups and fluid changes (I switched to all synthetic). Exterior still looks like new. Plan to keep the car until she reaches 150K

Highly underated car. More nimble
than a 325ic, feels more like a sports
car with the high revving motor.
Throw a performance chip in it and it
will smoke a 325ic automatic. Less
frill than the 325, but also less to go
BMW adds a more compact two-door hatchback called the 318ti to the lineup for 1995. With a chopped tail and the semi-trailing arm rear suspension from the previous-generation 3 Series (E30) aboard, the 318ti is intended to attract entry-level buyers. A 138-horsepower 1.8-liter four-cylinder resides under the hood, and the interior decor is rather austere compared with the increasingly plush innards of other 3 Series cars. Antilock brakes, alloy wheels and a five-speed manual gearbox are standard; a four-speed automatic is optional. Also this year, a couple new option packages (premium and sport) allow buyers to give their cars a distinct luxury or performance flavor.
