The BMW 315 is a reliable and cheap car and you can still feel the BMW quality
The rear "stabilization rubbers" was heavily worn at 236000 km.
The instrument panel has broken at several places.
The fuel consumption has become a bit too high (at 260000 km)
The seats are badly worn.
Rust below rear windows.
The car starts perfectly even when it was -25 degrees Celsius (-13 Fahrenheit)
It goes very smoothly on gravel roads. The suspension is very good.
Lack of 5th gear results in high rpm at higher speeds.
The car is very durable. It went many laps around a rally course and nothing broke.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
