A very sporty and solid little coupe
Front passenger window motor failed at 79,000 miles.
Power steering failed at 88,000 miles.
Ignition failed at 102,000 miles.
Rear bumper started to become loose during final year of ownership.
The 320i was, considering its age and mileage, a very reliable and solid car which also had excellent ride and handling.
Its practicality could have been better, as it only had two doors and the back seats were rather short on space.
Fuel bills and maintenance costs were relatively high.
I paid £3,000 for the 320i when it was eight years old. Three years later I sold it to a mechanic for £1,000.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
