BMW 3-Series Coupe 318 Ci 16V 2d (2002/02) - Owner Review

Excellent sure footed drive. Very secure on bends, 'swerveable' when nutters cause a problem.

BMW 3-Series Coupe (99-06)

Value

4 out of 5

Not cheap to buy but its only depreciated the same in £'s as my previous Vectra yet its a much higher value car, so that's good I guess.

Costs

4 out of 5

Under warranty so no costs except servicing yet. I found the oil change at £80 a bit steep. Rear tyres lasted 30k miles.

Driving

5 out of 5

Excellent sure footed drive. Very secure on bends, 'swerveable' when nutters cause a problem.

Performance

4 out of 5

Very smooth and good for a 2 litre. Feels refined.

Reliability

5 out of 5

No problems so far other than a CD player that jumps over small bumps like cats eyes. BMW garage say 'no problem found'. Must be my imagination every time I go over a small bump.

A discerning choice.

Comfort

4 out of 5

I had the sports seats as an extra, they are superb. No problem with long journeys. Climate control also makes long journeys less tiring.

No problems so far.

Service

4 out of 5

Having paid £250 for the CD system I don't expect it to jump. My wife's Audi has a CD and it has never jumped.

Problems

Bodywork
None (in fact it resists stone chips far better than my Vectra which looked like it had been hit with a shot gun on the front).

Engine
None.

Gearbox
None.

Other
CD jumps on minor bumps.
