BMW 3-Series Saloon (83-92)

Value

4 out of 5

Built better than most modern tanks, costs are high.

Costs

2 out of 5

Drinks more petrol than a dart player drinks beer, but it is built to last.

Driving

3 out of 5

Always wanting to bite you in the backside when in the wet.

Performance

4 out of 5

Take it over 3,000 rpm and its a wild child, the noise from the engine is like Mozart.

Reliability

4 out of 5

175,000 miles and it ain't let me down.

Security

3 out of 5

Pretty standard on mine, locks not the best in the world.

Service

5 out of 5

This is my 2nd E30, I had a 318 a few years ago, currently looking to get an original M3 BMW. Always been happy to help, as well as take my money. Expensive cars, but worth every last penny spent.

Problems

Bodywork
Back wheel arches, both of my BMW's have problems with this, poor designing on the rim, means mud gets stuck easily and rots the arch out.

Engine
175,000 miles on, still smooth as ever and still has the rasp you expect from a BMW.

Gearbox
Slackened off a lot, happened to both my BMW's again, but easy to live with. Still better than a Ford Focus gear box!!
