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.

Best Features

Handling, brakes, comfort, low cost to operate and maintain, reliable drive train.

Worst Features

Trim doesn't hold up as well as it does on some other cars.
