BMW 3-Series Coupe (92-99)

Value

3 out of 5

Car is excellent value for money for price against performance and driving satisfaction.

Costs

3 out of 5

Servicing through main dealer is horrendously expensive. Last service cost over £650.

Fantastic ride, bit firm but very sporty.

Performance

4 out of 5

Not bad. Prefer the 328 bearing in mind they fall in the same insurance group and the 323 has a crippled 328 engine.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Only had 1 major problem in 3 years which was that the car would not turn off (and they key was in my hand). Turned out the ignition lock needed a spot of WD40.

Real head turner - always getting comments and looks. Much prefer this to the E46 - more sporty shape.

Comfort

4 out of 5

For front passengers it's great, for rear passangers is very tight.

Problems with electric windows - wind up halfway jam then wind down again. Need to keep up button pressed down - very annoying.
