Ultimate Driving Machine? Maybe
By ArturoIsGod on


1998 BMW 3 Series 323is 2dr Coupe


I bought my 1998 323IS back in February
2002. I love the syling, handling, and
the performance from the 2.5 liter
inline 6 is pretty good. Thing is it's
only got 60K miles on it and I've
already had to replace the catalytic
converter, the water pump, and the
serpentine belt. The thing vibrates
like crazy when at idle and seems to be
getting progressively worse. One of
the exhaust mounting brackets has
broken loose and it rattles under the
car. As soon as the extended warranty
runs out it's gone. Anyone know the
phone # for Acura?

Best Features

Great handling, lots of low end torque, stylish interior and exterior.

Worst Features

More horsepower, automatic tranny doesn't downshift until way to late, so far reliability is really bad.
