1994 BMW 3 Series 318i 1.8 from North America
Never again I would get a used BMW
Airbag light is on, don't know if it works (I guess i'll find out during an accident)
ABS went on it.
Break sensor stopped working.
Digital climate monitor stopped working.
Clutch is very high.
Upper plate on the suspensions need to be redone.
Breaks need to be changed regularly.
Revs very high in 5th speed.
One of the pistons has a 14% leak while the other 3 have a 6%
The mechanic loves to see me at his garage cause I'm paying his kids college fund.
The dash is full of warning lights that put you in the Christmas mood even in summer.
I really was disappointed with my first BMW, Maybe I got unlucky with a lemon, but some people had warned me before buying it.
It handles great and performs nice in 5th.
It looks really nice and the driving position is perfect.
Love the sound system and the manual transmission, Can't see why would people get this little beast in automatic.
I always wanted to have a BM since childhood and I should have waited to be able to afford a new one cause after this 318 I will think twice before getting another.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
