1995 BMW 3 Series 318ti 2dr Hatchback


Review

Test drove the car on a whim assuming
that I would never actually purchase it.
Previously owned 3 SAABs, Ford Mustangs
and 1978 1/2 Datsun 280Z. Compared to
everything else the little 318ti was the
champ! Could use a little more
horsepower but at the expense of fuel
economy it is just not worth it. Only
thing that comes close today is the MINI
Cooper! Handling and overall build
quality have no equal in this price range!


Best Features

Handling, comfort, build quality, durability, super brakes, and a super convienent hatch. 80,000 miles and it has NEVER left me stranded anywhere!


Worst Features

Only a little more horsepower in a 4 cylinder package.

Review

I love the car in spite of its
imperfections. It doesn't have enough
power and the fuel mileage is horrible
for a 4 banger especially if you really
drive it. It is very comfortable and
fun to drive. It is definately worth
the $ paid for it because it looks more
expensive than it is. It is a great
looking car and gets a lot of
compliments. It is also reliable and
easy to work on. Over all it is a great
value.


Best Features

Rear wheel drive, style, handling, name, and a lot of fun.


Worst Features

Needs more power, better gas mileage, better air conditioner, and a more quiet driving environment.

Review

Driven 6 years everywhere from HI &
FLA to NY & CT. In deep snow with
studded tires and hi speed cross
country. NEVER had a mech prob in
113000 miles. Taught wife to drive
clutch in 3 days in it, then went to
sea for 2 wks. Still on first clutch.
I drive it like it has twice the pwr
it does. I love it. When the engine
dies in another 120000 miles I'm
putting a v-6 in it and driving
another 250000.


Best Features

Perfect ergonomics, great headroom, cheap parts (relative to Honda etc), great brakes, great shifter


Worst Features

More power, I'd get better gas milage if i didn't have to flog it so hard. Sell new ones in the US!
