BMW 3-Series Coupe 318i S 2d (1.9) (1999/S) - Owner Review

Very quiet and comfortable, but handling a bit iffy in the wet and not nearly as good as my previous car, a 205 GTi, but then not a lot does.

BMW 3-Series Coupe (92-99)

Value

4 out of 5

Good spec and excellent build quality for the money, better than any previous car I've owned.

Costs

3 out of 5

Too early to say, getting 39MPG at an average motorway cruise of 80mph though. BM dealer wanted over £200 for 2 remote key fobs and reprogramming! Fitted an aftermarket Cobra alarm for £180.

Performance

4 out of 5

If you've gone past the boy racer stage its more than adequate.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Starts instantly in any weather and so quiet and smooth you think its not running.

Still looks great, personally one of the best looking coupes around.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Very comfortable, seats are great especially heated. Offset pedals took a bit of getting used to though.
