1998 BMW 3 Series 318ti 2dr Hatchback


I won't bore you all with a long, drawn out review. Getting to the point, I love everything about the car except the small 1.8 liter engine.

Best Features

It's different. Everyone thinks it's a 2002 because they've never seen a hatchback BMW before. This car combines enough power, perfect handling and control for those back country winding roads. For another $12k I'll have a 350HP M3 engine in my baby hatchback.

Worst Features

Bring it back and sell either MANUAL or steptronic. Do not sell pure automatic. Increase horsepower/torque in the lower rev's. Increase engine size to possibly a 2.5 liter V6. Add the usual new style BMW lights, etc.
