1997 BMW 3 Series 318i touring 1.8 petrol
Front brakes everything replaced, still not good.
Rear suspension rubbers need replacement badly.
Squeak's and noises from everywhere.
Handling OK, but not super.
Not so quick.
Not well build, not any better than my Citroen BX that I owned, rattles and squeaks from interior and under the hood.
Seat upholstery wears very fast.
Seats are just too small, not comfortable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I also had problems with the brakes. They "wobbled". You replace everything and it would return after a few thousand Kms. I even replaced all the brakes with the 328 vented discs and after a while the same again. I have read on another web site that the problem is actually worn suspension parts that will warp the front discs. When I had the suspension checked I did have worn parts. I have now fixed the suspension so lets see how it goes.
And yes the seats are small and do wear out very quickly.
