1997 BMW 3 Series 318i 1.8 from Croatia
Lovely car, but heavier on the wallet
115000 km - tank fuel level sender malfunctioning, had to replace the whole tank pump assembly.
115000 km - Airbag sensor warning light on, seat belt fasteners faulty.
130000 km - Catalytic converter burned itself in a matter of minutes, clogged the exhaust.
The car is great fun to drive, especially if you want thrills from time to time. Try summer tires in snow and you'll know what I mean.
A car for enthusiasts more than your usual Opel. This means more fun, but also heavier on the wallet.
Relatively little room compared to my previous Opel Vectra, but much more style and better build quality. Engine is the best part of the car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
