1993 BMW 3 Series 318is 2dr Coupe


I just rebuilt the motor on my 1.8L
after owning it for three years and
preparing to turbo it (151k miles),
when I tore it apart I found after all
the abuse I put it through (Redline in
every gear, everytime I drive it) the
lower rod and main bearings were
almost like new.... NOW THAT IS GERMAN
ENGINEERING!!!! I have killed several
American made vehicles with the abuse
I put them through. But every German
made vehicle I have owned has lasted.
(Volkswagen, ,Audi)

Best Features

One word explains my favorite feature.... "RAILS" I have modified VW's til I was blue in the face and none has come close to the handling of this car in stock dressing. Now that I have a set of Bilstein mono shocks struts and bavarian sport springs at each corner...

Worst Features

Being my own mechanic you would think after working on this car I would have some complaints, I do have one, EXPENSIVE PARTS!! Even as a repair shop getting a discounts, the parts still added up. With all the above said if you are looking for a performance vehicle, BMW is the one.
