This is my second 318is - both
incredible. I now also own a 540i,
and when I get back into my 318is I
marvel that it does NOT seem
next to the 540. I tend to drive the
3 faster, as it feels zippy and
there's such a feeling of control over
the vehicle. It has the sports
suspension, which I adore - it really
does make a difference. I have the
manual transmission, and the clutch is
silky and wonderful. Visibility is
phenomenal. Great gas mileage,
reliability and safety w/this car. By
the way, this car has the best cup
holders EVER. Put a soda can in and
drive like Mario Andretti? No problem
Sports suspension, windshield wipers
that adjust to your speed, and the
best cup holders EVER.
Well, more power, of course, but they
addressed that with the 323.
