1998 BMW 3 Series 323is 2dr Coupe


Review

And this one ROCKS!!! The most pleasant car I have ever driven. I have the sport pkg, constantly in contact with the road yet the suspension is not rough, the grip is amazing, the steering is on par with a Porsche! This is truly a drivers car. The chasis is as stif as the day it was built (now I have over 80k miles) Oh did I mention it is a very good looking car as well!


Best Features

Smooth Inline 6, dual climate control, dual heated seats, sport suspension, steering, feel of the road, style, fantastic gas mileage, one A+ car!!!


Worst Features

A tad more power. Germans do not mix with cup holders, and I hope they never will! Power seats? Alarm goes off when I use the key instead of the remote. And warning lights when the door is Ajar.

Review

After years of ownership I can only praise BMW 328 IS. The outstanding quality and overal reliability of this car makes me want to keep it forever. It's proven to be a fun car to drive, and remarquably safe in difficult or unexpected driving situations. And the looks? Oh...after 6 years it still turn heads on the road. Classy and contemporary! The acceleration is fantastic and fuel economy unbelievable. The interior is roomy, quite and luxurious. The sport package it's a plus in this car.


Worst Features

Acceleration, road performance, fuel economy, interior.

Review

I bought my BM used in 2002, and this car is AMAZING. There are few quirks that seem to happen with all BMWs but they are not life threatening, or highly irritating. I would definitely recommend this car to anyone. Dealership fees are a bit exorbitant, but look around where you live, you will find some that specialize in BMWs and other german cars. The internet also has a great repository of information on how to fix/repair, and troubleshoot. Most of them can be done by yourself


Best Features

Beautiful aerodynamic shape. Powerful I6 engine. Huge trunk space. Quiet interior


Worst Features

More legroom for backseat passengers. Tail Light Failure warning although everything is in working order.
