1997 BMW 3 Series 318is 2dr Coupe
Review
The 318is does not have the power of other BMW's, but it has the handling, braking, looks, and feel all BMW's have. I bought it used because the price was good and the miles were low (46,000). At first, I was concerned that maintenance would be high as it typically is for BMW's. However, I use an independent mechanic who has serviced my cars for 13 years, and this car has been a dream. The small engine, manual trans and good handling are a great combination for a new teen driver while also providing some style and "cool". What I didn't expect was how much fun it would be or that my wife and I would fight with our teen over who gets to drive it.
Favorite Features
Handling, brakes, comfort, low cost to operate and maintain, reliable drive train.
Suggested Improvements
Trim doesn't hold up as well as it does on some other cars.
