I have once had the pleasure of owning an early B reg 323i coupe. I have had 6 cars since i passed my test and this has to be the car i would buy again. To start with the looks of the car are amazing. The smooth lines that BMW have always put into their cars are still there and it always turned heads no matter if i was in a busy high street or a motor way. The interior of the car is by far the comfiest i have sat in. The seats just seem to hug you and the dash keeps everything within your reach. The built in fuel computer tells you everything you need to know about any part of the car, brakes, fuel, oil, temp, miles to gallon, etc. ... Read the complete review

Well, I never really thought of myself as a BMW driver, but when this creature presented itself at our local garage I was smitten. Our old car having given up the ghost I was touring the area in hope, and saw what is now my very own BMW 320i D reg, metallic blue four door manual. It's a super car. The salesman said coyly, 'Once driven, sold.' and I smirked knowingly, but drove and then, indeed, bought. These cars drive like dreams, and look better. Although 13 years old it shone like the sun. Chrome bumpers, not tacky plastic accessories, give it a look of the past hard to find on modern cars. Not a speck of rust could be located, even underneath. The ... Read the complete review

I have had the pleasure of owning 2 320i models, one a B reg manual and the other a G reg auto. They were both fine vehicles. I maintained them myself and by buying service kits from the main agents, never had a moments trouble with either of them. They are not for the Hammer and Spanner brigade mind. If you buy one, get a workshop manual and follow it's instructions to the letter. The main factor in maintenance is to do it when required, on time and only neglect one of these machines at your peril. Take your time and it will be easy. Properly maintained they do not go wrong! These vehicles are engineered, not thrown together like some makes. They are a ... Read the complete review

I have owned a 318i touring for about 9 months and have found it to be little more than a practical workhorse. The engine, although sounds like a Buick with a hole in the exhaust, has the acceleration of a hard boiled egg being pushed down a slight incline. The handling is poor, with a very twitchy back end and the touring 'estate' makes very little difference due to the narrow boot. Although I found the cost of spares and repairs suprisingly competitive, and the car just seems to continue to go regardless of the abuse given, it can at best be described as workmanlike. Go for the 2.5 instead unless you want a slow reliable family car. Read the complete review
