Car was amazing from the day I bought it, 2.8k even though it's a late edition. Bargain!
My model being a 98' 328i M-Tech coupe, Boston green, full black leather, M3 replica. Paint still fresh, only just marking its 10 year birthday.
Very quick considering an M3 has 93BHP more.
I've chased M3s, and believe me this car can hold its own.
I've put on a Hamann cold air induction kit for smoother throttle response etc.
0-60 roughly 6.3, my power being 204BHP... Quick!
Add Eissenman exhaust and ECU remap and you've got a 328i with a very tidy 230BHP, 330ci beater yes ;)
This car is built solid, and although the torque could have been louder, this car is a very quick 200BHP monster, it'll beat 200sx's, Boxter non S's and GTI turbos all day long!
It's my 2nd car; being 18 years old, it's a dream to drive!
Buy one with M3 extras such as aero kit and wheels, as it really looks something beautiful. Also get a sought after colour i.e. Boston Green, Estoril Blue or Avus Blue.
Mileage is quite good, unless you like stretching this straight 6's legs! I get around 22mpg around town.
Cornering is very precise and stable, as you'd expect for a £30,000 car new!
And to sum up, this car is very very good, it's lovely to drive, the leather is very comfortable, and the exterior styling and interior defines BMW luxury.
For 3.5K for a last edition 98 99 reg, this car is still selling quicker than the new shape.
Now I'm going to enjoy my last few months with her before upgrading to that 286BHP M3 monster :D.
Hope you enjoyed the review.
