Bought another 318ti

1996 BMW 3 Series 318ti 2dr Hatchback


I bought a 95 318ti that we loved.
After a head-on with a 66 Chevy pickup
that I walked away from, I replaced it
with a 96 318ti. Nothing else quite
measured up in fun for the $.
Its a great combination of sporty
handling and economy. I get mid 30 mpg
on the highway and high 20s around
town. It is a great car for 2, but the
back seats are hard to access for
adults. On the other hand, the
hatchback gives you more flexibility
than a sedan.
Mine has been very reliable (from 27k
miles to 87k so far), but I had to
find a specialty garage. The
dealership is very nice, but too
