“my bmw 316i SE”

Written on: 26/02/2012 by BMWenthusiast6 (1 review written)

This is my first bmw and i must admitt, im a very proud owner. I am 19 years old and was 18 when i was lucky enough to buy it. since owning the car i have kept it in completely standard condition. No ugly mods or useless equipment for me thanks. I will start off with looks, and what a beauty it is! ive allways loved the e46 shape and especially when you consider its over 10 years old, it still looks modern and when you compare it to other cars of that age, i personally think the BMW puts them… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/02/2008

We picked this 1996 BMW 316i auto estate last year for a grand. It has been very reliable when you get used to the occasional steering wobble. It looks fantastic. The bodywork is as new - very smart racing green. I am having to move on to a frugal Polo as I have a long commute each day. Any ideas as to average fuel consumption on this auto?… Read Full Review

“Manual transmission depends on the onboard computer...”

Written on: 03/12/2007 by robien (1 review written)

Manual transmission depends on the onboard computer unlike in a pure manual transmission car where engine can be jump started. The onboard computer flickered while driving on a steep upslope then eventually conked out while it was supposedly ON. Eventually, the foot brake failed because the car was working against gravity. Almost perished from the accident had not a stone hedge broke the fall. Naturally, BMW autoshop estimated the damages and maintained "pilot error" as the cause of the fall… Read Full Review

“I sold this car about 9 months ago, it was a BMW 316i...”

Written on: 20/05/2006 by dizzyfizzy1 (32 reviews written)

I sold this car about 9 months ago, it was a BMW 316i on a 1995 M registration. It was a 4 door saloon and had a 1.6i engine. I bought this car just to use as a second car for travelling to work and back after having a number of BMW's in the past. The car never once let me down, it had done 98,000 miles when I sold it of which 6,000 of those I did myself. The car wasn't to bad on petrol but it was very basic, no air con, no electric windows in the back. When I sold it it was starting to get a… Read Full Review

“My Mum has a P reg silver Auto BMW 3 Series 316i Saloon. ”

Written on: 15/11/2004 by Vish R (6 reviews written)

My Mum has a P reg silver Auto BMW 3 Series 316i Saloon.

Although it has done 150,000 Miles, it is still as reliable and durable as any other car. I seldomly drive it, But when I do, it feels like your in total control.

With Accurate steering, Good power, excellent Auto gear box and a very good safe feeling to it, it makes an ideal drivers car, with room for a few passengers.

However, fuel consumption on this model isnt that great. About 28-33mpg combined. Rear seats are limited in terms of… Read Full Review
