3-Series (E21, E30)Chat relating to the BMW 3-Series from 1975-1983 and 1984-1991 line. Specific models: BMW 315, BMW 316, BMW 318, BMW 318i, BMW 320/4, BMW 320i, BMW 320/6, BMW 323i, BMW 320i. E30 Family models include: BMW 325e, BMW 325i, BMW 325is, BMW 325ix.
I have a 91 318i and it's got about 130 something horsepower to 140 I think correct me if I'm wrong. Has anyone every tried going heads up agaisnt a corolla with their 91 eo 318i? Because my g/f bought a new corolla and it's automatic but it still feels a lot faster than my 318ib standard although I keep that car in a tip top shape with tune ups oil changes, differtial fluids. I guess a car that is 13 years old is a little limited compared to the brand new engine.

I have the same experiance, my boyfriend has a 2001 Neon 3 speed, and he can stop faster and accelerate faster then my 325i auto .
yea check it out. All the reviewers complained about it. goto consumerguide.com and check out their used auto sections for the specs on the 2001 Neon. they soon changed over to their craptacular 604 4 speed tranny shortly after 2001
Well, crappy as it may be (we are talking about a Dodge Neon, anyway), I still can't imagine what would make their engineers think that three forward gears would be able to cover the acceleration and cruising demands of everyday driving.
Long as the 318 driver knows what he's doing, I'd put money on the Bimmer.
If you've ever dumped the clutch above 2000rpm in a front-wheel-drive, you know what I'm talking about.
