95 318i — It has a good maintenance record at 238,000 miles but now my windshield wipers stay on when I try to turn them off. It becomes an annoyance to keep having to turn the car off to get them to stop. Otherwise it has really been a solid and reliable car.

Pros

Handling, quality and performance are top of the class.

Cons

May be clumsy in tight parking areas (it's not a small car)

Excellent Sports Coupe — Good value for money, excellent handling and loads of torque. Everything for driver is easily reachable and does not get into the way either. Cars 10 years younger offer more power (of course) but also cost more. Not much leg room in the back with a driver of similar height (180cm) but plenty of space in the trunk. If you want a cheap car get something from Japan instead, if you want a car with good handling then there's no alternative.

Fun Carr — Performance is great, built like a tank, the apperance is sporty, car is very fun to drive but it wastes a lot of gas. The car acceleration is great has some electrical problems with the brake lights. Car seat warmers are amazing as well

Pros

Slight understeer when pushed to its limit, but with the possibility to get the back end out.

Cons

Underpowered, and no significant gains can be had cheaply and easily.

Cheap, Slow, But Fun-to-throw-around-in-turns Bmw. — I've had my car for a year and a half and its been good. No trouble with the engine except two crankcase seals. I've had the clutch and slave cylinder replaced though, mainly because of a lot of burn outs after I learned how to drive stick. Haha. It gets good mileage and is a smooth and stable drive, although body roll is quite evident at off- ramp speeds of 50+, also at over 100 i can feel the up-force from the relatively high ground clearance of the front end. Lowering springs and front bumper lip recommended.

Good acceleration, Smooth shifts, Incredibly quiet, Decent on gas

Cons

Sound system is lacking, Cup holders only fit energy drinks

You Don't Always Need An M — I have been extremely pleased with this car ever since i bought it. this car has never failed to impress me. The cost of ownership is not nearly as the myths say. nothing is as expensive as you might hear This car is amazing to drive it shifts through every gear like a breaze. acceleration is incredible but of course can be improved. cornering is a little on the sloppy side but with a few modifications can be greatly improved. overall this vehicle lives up to its heritage and is a well built machine worthy of the BMW name.

Maybe expensive parts

More Fun And Better Built Than A Lot Of Cars 10 Years Newer — Acceleration leaves a bit to be desired but hey, its only a 1.8L 4 cyl. The quality is awesome. Its a 1995 and Ive driven newer cars that arent as tight or handle as good. It does have a few rattles but after 220K miles, I can overlook that. Parts can be expensive and oil changes cost a little more because it takes a cartridge filter but well worth it. Its the lowest model bmw makes and it has features on it much newer cars dont. Bmw is way ahead of the game.

Perfect For Student Or Everyday Vehicle For Working Family Member. — I like the car because it is a rare model offered by BMW in this country from 95-99. It is good on gas and handles well. It also has rather cheap general repair bills and offers good interior space for a car of it's size.
