BMW 3-Series Saloon (83-92)

Value

3 out of 5

So what if it's a little more than a 325? It's rarer and half a second quicker to 60!

Costs

2 out of 5

It's a BMW, what do you expect? (engines are very good though).

Driving

5 out of 5

Totally fantastic. Real power ar*e-out-action all the way. Give me another roundabout, please!

Performance

5 out of 5

With 150bhp standard, they ain't slow (I have had mine at 135-up, but mine is played with a little!)

Reliability

5 out of 5

Only silly things (bulbs going once in a blue moon and backbox falling apart) but I think that's due to it being an ansa.

The birds love a beemer (especially when the BMW has just munched and spat out a bodykitted Pugeot 1.9 (you know who you are!)

Comfort

4 out of 5

'90 spec interior an advantage (better quality - seats don't bend like on older models).

We've gathered the biggest companies on the market in one place to save you money.

Security

3 out of 5

Fit an alarm/immobiliser 'cos if they want it, they'll try to nick it.

Service

5 out of 5

My local dealers can get anything I need, even if it takes a couple of days to come from Germany.

Problems

Bodywork
Well, she is now 18+ and she's got a little scab on the rear panel - not bad eh?

Engine
Only the usual wear and tear.

Gearbox
Had nylons replaced in gear selector and all seals replaced a year or so ago, no probs!
