I am close to buying a 95 318ti 5spd black pw, pdl, air, CD, p. mirror, ps, pb or a 92 325i yellow 5spd 2dr leather, fully loaded, sunrf, a/c, pb, pdl, ps, no accidents, mags, CD player, alarm.

Pretty much the same price.. 10,000cdn - 7300.00usd - for either one. No idea of mileage on either. Zero rust since I live in a place where it is almost impossible to get that here.. (yes i love the look of both..)

Gasoline here in Vancouver Canada is $4 a gallon now (canadian gallon is 1/5th larger than us gallon) Hence I am going to put away my Jeep and only use it for 4wdrving soon.

Any thoughts on the two cars?

It would become my daily driver.

jim

the 318ti will save you gas money
but the 325i will be a lot of fun too.

The 318 would be good because it's nimble and will save you gas money over a period of time... less maintenance for a newer car also... I think anyways

Go for the 318ti. But first of all, check the mileage and the carfax report of both. I think the 325 is too expensive for that year of built.

Cannot say if it is much or less, this depends on your living area. I still should go for the 318ti.

Throwing price out the window (these arent the only two of their kind), it comes down to what you want. The ti is very fuel efficient. The 325 is going to be a much better road car. I wouldn't buy either, I would wait and find a 94-95 325is with similar mileage. :P

Well I went and saw the yellow one which was repainted badly and ran like crap ( 245,000 km- high mileage) - So that one is out..

I will drive the ti just to see how it drives.. and I will find another 325 to drive as well. I have decided to get one however.. I gues it is just finding the right car.

5spd, 2door is a must - sunroof a bonus.

the best thing to do is wait...
there are sooo many bmw's out there

when i was lookin at bimmers i saw the 318ti and said i have to have it
we drove it... my dad said it was slow and so we kept looking
the m3 was a little much for me at the time but the 325 is what i ended up gettin
way better than the 318...
performance wise...
