| very last 318i saloons for europe were built in South Africa. They had the M44 16 valve engineand rear disc brakes. This move was likely to ease initial production changes for the E46. |
The '99 316i Compacts (and probably coupes and tourings) actually have the same 1.9 litre four cylinder engine as the E46 318i.
In the US all 318i models have the 16 valve engine. Not sure if this is true for early E36s though. It is interesting to note the the weight the car has gained over the years has not been matched by more powerful engines, this is especially true of the 318iS.

I did think that the M44 engined 318iS (140bhp) came only as a coupe whereas the 4 door version had the 1.8
I've never seen a 4 door 318 with the full blown M-sport pack factory fitted.
