1996 BMW 3 Series Convertible 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!


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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.
