I am looking at a 95 318I 5 speed with 118K miles. Buying from a BMW dealer and has supposedly been completly serviced. They were asking $8,900 and have got them down to $7K. Does it seem worth it. It is in really good shape, and is white with Black leather.

Little nervous, what do you guys thing??

Thanks,
Rocky

Talking

I will assume that you mean $7,000 US Dollars...

I paid $7,500 for a similar mileage '92 325i 3 months ago. Mine was from the second owner, with summer and winter tires on 2 sets of rims, with ALL the bills! It was totally stock, except for a K&N air filter, and synthetic engine oil. Except for 3 interior and 1 interior bulb, this car was 100%.

By comparison, your 318i with the same mileage sounds about the same for value.

IMO, at 25 MPG my 2.5L V6 is the better engine, so I would take my older 325i over your newer 318i.

P.S. What colour is it?

Its not a great price for the car, but it is fairly resonable, they're not trying to rob you blind or anything like that. But for the money you might be able to get something a little older but better. I have a 1995 318i and love it.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the 325i's dont come with a V6, but they do come with an In-line 6

Not that I know of, a v engine has 3 cylinders on both sides of the engine, while in-line 6 engines just have all 6 cylinders in a row.

You are correct Tico. I6, not V6. (I as in "i")
I dont know about the 4 cyl, Probably inline as well.

Yes, I would prefer a 325, but I cannot find one in this price range. I live in Ohio, US, and BMWs are pretty popular. BTW it is White with Black leather.

thekid, How many miles does your 318 have??

Alpine white exterior, black leather interior.

I have an alpine white 1998 323is with tan interior.

If you take care of them and change your fluids when you should, these things will last 300,000+ miles without a rebuild or anything MAJOR.

Hey, I'm selling that exact same car. White, 95 318i with black leather interior. Mine has 138K miles, but was bought from a dealer last year (all checked out) and I have babied it since. It has new tires, belts, and documented work history.
CD changer in trunk.

I am asking $5500 and I live in Illinois.

P.S. It's a 5 speed. Are you interested?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but with V6 doesn't that have like 3 cyl of power to the left wheel and the other 3 to the other wheel? and Inline 6 just has power put both somehow? i've never understood the difference between the V6 and I6, although I hear I6 is better.
