Good car but E46 is much better!
By Davie Z on


1995 BMW 3 Series 318i 4dr Sedan


This car has been extremely durable so
far and performance is still similar to
how it was when new seven years ago.
The engine and transmission and brake
performance are still excellent, and
comfort is still there.
However, the new series is simply miles
beyond this car, no comparison.

Biggest problem has been the SRS -
Airbag system, which has been out of
action for four of the last seven years
with multiple and expensive failures.
Also lost the engine balancer and it
took the dealer a week to get it back
to me on this one. Dealer service has
been generally feeble so have resorted
to independents who have proven much

Best Features

Predictable, safe handling. Good learner/first car. Still better ride than almost any Japanese car and quiet, too.

Worst Features

Sound system is feeble.
