1999 BMW 3 Series 318i SE 1.9 petrol from UK and Ireland
Like a glass of water - however fast you drink it, it never tastes of anything
Front brake discs disintegrated.
Rear bumper became unhinged over a speed hump.
An appliance. Passionless, funless, also flawless. It annoys me when people stare in envy when I drive past - those folks must never have driven one of the most anodyne motorway sample-carriers ever. I deeply regret choosing this car.
It is slow and has massive flywheel effect.
Perhaps a 330 is fun, but as a 4 pot - awful. Does what it says on the tin - cruises without effort for miles and miles, but don't expect any fun at all. A self drive bus.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Don't worry, unfortunately your comments apply to the 328 also. Must be *very* annoying after having owned an Impreza Turbo.
Your comments are spot on.

Yeah, I've got a 323i - nice engine, absolutely loads of grip but pretty anodyne and the interior is so boring. Almost too good to be fun. Overpriced also. And why do BMW feel the need to fit that fuel consumption 'guilt' needle which goes quite literally off the bottom of the scale when you accelerate?!
