1996 BMW 3 Series 318i 2dr Convertible


Review

I bought the car to replace an 02
altima that had the same number of
miles on it. I've only regretted it
when maintenance work needed to be done
and unless you live in a big city,
being selective about mechanics isn't
easy. The radio reception sucks most of
the time and off the line performance
(automatic) suffers in hilly areas. The
top is manual, so it takes a couple of
minutes to take down, but the worst
part is the clear plastic window.
COPLETELY UNUSABLE!


Best Features

interior trim quality, smooth revving engine, great mpg, the best combination of ride and handling available. great looks too!


Worst Features

bigger trunk, better stereo, power seats, glass rear window

Review

Purchased this vehicle for top down
springtome fun...it lives up to my
expectations. It could have more power
but looks awesome even standing still.
The E36 body style is still the best
looking 3 series made! My second 96 3
(other was a 328ia). These vehicles
epitomize what BMW should still
be...fun, sporty, stylish cars. The
new BMWs (except the Z) seem to look
like they're built for old people.

MG, but I love this automoble. Handles
with firm control and looks good even
standing still. It's fun to drive and
a great value....wouldn't trade it for
any other auto on the road....
