BMW 3-Series Coupe 318i s 2d (1993/K) - Owner Review

Even this, the baby of the coupes, gives a fun drive with excellent feedback through the stering and a well balanced chasis. Good brakes, too.

BMW 3-Series Coupe (92-99)

Value

3 out of 5

Good quality build.

Costs

3 out of 5

Use a good independant specialist. Using parts from the likes of Euro car parts or German and Swedish. Low insurance compared to bigger brothers. Very good mpg at 35+!!

Performance

2 out of 5

140bhp - not too bad for a 1.8, though needs to be kept above 4000rpm to be on the boil!

Reliability

5 out of 5

138,000 miles on the clock and barely needed to lift the bonnet. Uses virtualy no oil and not a rattle to be heard from anything mechanical on the car.

Certain amount of stigma attatched, but personaly I think it's got style.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Comfortable seats and perfect driving position. Suspention can be a bit too solid on some of Britain's wonderfully maintained roads! Revving 4-cylinder engine can be tiring on long motorway journeys.

Not experienced any problems with theft, but have been the victim of malicious vandalism.

3 out of 5

Not had much dealings with them. They charge an arm and a leg for everything.

Problems

Bodywork
Slight blistering on rear arches from stone chips.

Crack in weld on tubular exhaust manifold (common aparently) and replacement radiator.
