92' 318i

I'm looking into buying a 92' 318i and i'd like to know the ups and downs for it before i actually buy it.

The price is about 10k USD (Cars are more expensive in Malaysia).

Comment away.

Thanks in advance

no shit....ill take 8 or 9 for mine....lol...


anyways, the 318 is awesome, handles really really well and the gas milage is great, and since the damn engine is so small, diy are ALOT easier, e.g, the ICV on the 318 is real easy to get out and clean, but seems for a bitch to get to on my 325 now...overall, its a good cars, and its not as slow as they make it out to be

I know the price in Malaysia is ridiculous. Over here, BMWs here are over priced too. But in Malaysia, most BMW units are CKD and they still selling the price of CBU units.

So how much is the 318i in RM? Early E36 models, I would look out for rust at the engine hood. Please be aware that they are not cheap to maintain but in Malaysia they are a lot of cheap used spare parts and I think it won’t be a problem for you. They are so many half-cut E36 body in Malaysia which is sad to see. :lol:

Depending on year, it could be M42, M43 or M44. I reccommend the M44. It has oil squirters for the pistons. I just think that's so cool.

i think buying a newer E36 would be better then a 92' model, so i'll looking and have to wait until my exams are over before dad would buy me a car.
