Smile Need some help with my used new 318i

Hey guys

I just bought a 1993 318i just because of the gas mileage, it has about 191,000 miles on it but the car is like brand new condition becuz its a single owner car. I would like to know that did the 318i's came with the trip computer and if they didnt whats the thing thats below the climate control which has like 14 or 15 buttons on it not sure and i would also like to know that do the bmw in 1993 came with the fade out courtesy lights. I have a stock wing on it which is lighted from one end to the other end, the owner said it came with the car. What does this mean do i have a sports package, i owned a audi before and i dont know much about bmw's.

Help would be appreciated.

preyash
Have a nice day guys.

318i cars can come with an on board computer, which can include a trip computer. If you have an LCD panel sitting below your climate control with lots of buttons below it, then it sounds to me like you have the On Board Computer (OBC). Read the manual on what it does and how.

The best way to find out what all of the options are on the car is to write down the VIN and call any dealer. They should be able to look up the car on their computer system.



1999 E39 540i/6-VF Stage 1 S/C, Dinan exhaust, Dinan strut+shock braces, Dinan ltwt flywheel + clutch, Dinan Brembo BBK, Dinan monoball, H&R Springs, Koni Yellows, M5 sways, Dinan forged 18" wheels, &c.

1995 E38 740i. Highly modded. Faster than you.

Sold 2-28-07: 1997 E36 M3/4, 8-30-05 RIP 1997 528i

same with mine mine has heated seats and i also guess it has the sports suspension and can u tell me that below the odometer what are the graph things that show up in yellow and red, and does it really show miles per gallon below the rpm meter, how much do u get in the city and highway i mean mpg, Do u know how to fix a rip in seat, its in the seam so i think it can be stitched but if u have any advice tell me. My aim is preyash234, and u can im me.

nice looking car, wish I had the good looking paint you have !!! I also have a 318i. It's a fun car and done with the right conditions it can give you up to 500 miles to the tank. Although you probably won't get more than 440-460.

But anyway enjoy and welcome

i drive a 325i but i pretty sure the "graph things" your talking about is your oil meter. Your supposed to reset it with an Oil Reset tool(get it from bavarian but you can probly find it cheaper somewhere else)

the 'graph' thing is to show when you car is next due for an inspection/service. it can either be 1 or 2, 2 being more thorough. search for it on here and you'll find it. and yes u can reset it.

im guessing you're talking about your cluster lighting up!? if so u can adjust the brightness with the little turning wheel by the steering wheel, i think for you it'll be on the right hand side of the steering wheel!
