1985 BMW 3 Series 316i 1.6i petrol
One thing - The rear diff gave up. - Not financially worth repairing after that.
A comfortable and classy car.
By no means a sports car, but a quiet and pleasant motorway cruiser.
A little heavy on the petrol, especially around town.
The rear diffs are the Achilles heel of this car. To an older BM like this, not in pristine condition, unless you have garage facilities to repair it yourself, it is not cost-effective.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
