The Absolute Perfect Machine

1998 BMW 3 Series 318i 4dr Sedan


I cannot complain about many things about this car. My favorite part, performance, is exceptional for a 6 cylinder. The throttle is responsive and the pick-up and 1st, 2nd and even 3rd gear will push you into your seat, even the exhaust has a subtle growl. The ergonomics of the car are perfect. Radio controls, air conditioning controls, gearshift, blinker, headlight switch, seat adjustments... Everything is perfectly placed. The integrity of the interior materials is superb. The leather is strong and the stitching doesn't break. The interior is very beautiful and the exterior of the car is stunning. You have to drive one to see how many heads turn as you drive by.

Best Features

Performance, 190 horsepower has never done so much in a car. Exterior styling is beautiful, clean lines and very tasteful trim and bumpers. Interior styling doesn't have the cheap "Mustang" look. The car is a definite head-turner. Very reliable, integrity of parts is stunning.

Worst Features

Cupholders are made for soda cans and fast-food cups at most, nothing large. Glovebox lid is somewhat thin. Not all cars have keyless entry or an alarm, but do have a locking steering wheel and other safety measures.
