1995 BMW 3 Series Coupe 318is 2dr Coupe


Review

To pay off a handful of loans I sold my previous motor, an 03 RSX tip tronic for the E36 coupe I've always eyed since my youth. Not disappointed in the least bit. Even with a 15 year old suspension, drivetrain, etc, it behaves in a more composed and solid manner than all the newer Honda's our family has owned. It lacks some in acceleration but makes up for that fully in its timeless, class act looks. Interior still looks new. After a careful detail (wash, wax, wheel clean, etc.) it still gets compliments from folks in vehicles valued 5 times what the 318 is worth. It is a gas sipper, and fitted with "M" packaged wheels and a wax job it still looks Boss Euro. Purchase 1 with records!


Best Features

Ergonomically fit. The interior though austere to some, makes sense. German no-nonsense at its best. De-void of silly I-drive, and idiotic fake brushed aluminum trim. Classic.


Worst Features

Fog lights crack easily. You WILL replace rear shock mounts if not already done. Weak factory speakers in any condition which @ this age need replacement anyhow.

Review

This is truly the best BMW that money can buy for less then $5000! I bought this car as a project car, the engine was perfect, body was straight and that's why i bought it. I've had it for about 5000 miles now and everything seems to be great. This car now has a BMW m3 body kit with a JL Audio sound system, its a show car aswell as a Daily Driver! Love it! Good Job BMW!


Best Features

The Stick Shift Punch when you hit 3rd gear!


Worst Features

Tilt Steering Wheel should be standard! More Leg Space in the Rear!

Review

They don't make them like this any more. Still has that all important feel of the road missing from newer models. Not super powerful off the line but still plenty of power to drive safely in virtually all circumstances. At higher speeds can compete with just about anything on the road. Not one of the best body styles. BMW owner for >25 years.


Best Features

Handling. Fuel efficient smooth, powerful engine.
