BMW 3 SERIES 316i 2dr (Review date: 5th March '12)
Bought my silver BMW 316i Coupe apprx 6 months ago and I have to say what an awesome machine, with my previous vehicle being a small Peugeot 106 this was quite a step up!
At 103,000 miles this still has a lot of life left with being an "N" reg ( 1995), it does NOT drive like a 17 year old car at all, no knocks bangs and the engine incredibly smooth and quiet.
As for fuel I drive my cars very carefully and i can put £16 quid in the tank which is 12 litres and i will get 80 miles driving too and from work every day which i think is pretty damn good, no need to raz this thing around just the pure pleasure of driving it is enough!
Had a few problems when we first got it of course due to the age, needed 4 new tyres ( obv not the cars fault! ) and had an air leak in one of the pipes causing the engine revs to be high on idle, however after a good service and a good waxing and the car coming up like new she runs like an absolute dream.
Would recommend one of these to anyone as they will not let you down and you will not be able to compare to ANY other car :)
1995 E36 BMW 323i Coupe
BMW 3 SERIES 323i 2dr (Review date: 19th January '12)
Not the most practical car, a lot of friends mention how it's quite low down to get into, plus being a 2 door coupe it's not easy to get large items in the car. Fortunately the rear seats do collapse allowing for a larger boot space if necessary but still you can only get stuff in that will fit in through the hole!
Most reliable car I have ever owned. Very few parts other than service parts have been replaced in the year I have owned it and that's not bad for a 17 year old car!
Running costs are not as bad as many people think. At worst it gets 25mpg, tax is £240 for the year but for the reliability and drivability of the silky smooth 6cyl engine it's well worth it!
For me it drives beautifully, plenty of low down torque and lots of power as you move up the rev range so it you want to have a blast it's great and also if you're plodding round town it's great at low revs with the torque so combined mileage is good also!
You cannot beat these old BMW E36's

I have had a few of these cars over the years. Originally bought my first brand new in 1995 and loved it and now, due to a change in financial circumstances I' ve aquired a 98 model with all the bells and whistles for a knockdown price and it's just as good as I remember despite having covered 134k miles!. It's fast, stylish, handles like a dream and is surprisingly economical as long as you don't drive like you stole it all the time!!. I' m getting an average of 33mpg and that's driving normally and using the air con. Drawbacks?, compared to more modern cars the steering rack is a bit low geared, nearly 4 turms lock to lock, the one touch electric windows don' t always work properly and the blower fan needed replacing. Both common faults. Out on the road you' d never know you were driving a car nearly 14 years old. Good cars like mine will become classics one day so get yours now!!.

BMW 328I SPORT COUPE AUTOMATIC
BMW 3 SERIES 328i 2dr Auto (Review date: 2nd December '11)
This is a fantastic car to drive. As it has the lowered suspension you get the full feel of driving a sports car.A pleasure to drive and fast. I have also always felt very safe in this car, it holds the road brilliantly. The boot space is brilliant, the back seats drop down to give a large amount of room to carry luggage and items being picked up. I have never had a problem with the running costs. I have had to spend very little on the up keep of the car. Because of the low mileage it has hardly been run in. It is very reliable, I have never had any problems with it at all. It has always been practical for us as a family. It is in fantastic condition.

like the 5series the 325 is well built and tones of fun to drive, rear wheel drive gives your tail end that extra wipe when pulling off, cheap fun for those who can not afford the M3...
the car was never designed to carry passangers at the back but has enough space to carry 3 adults at the back...
cheap to insure with my bank (NATWEST).... TRY UR BANK FIRST, YOUR CARD NORMALY HAS DISCOUNTS FOR INSURANCE, TAX IS NOT THAT BAD AS WELL
328i sport, classic in the making

I have owned my 328I for two years, I bought this car for track use mainly drifting, what an amazing car no matter what you do and how you drive it will keep going and the back wheels will keep spinning, i used to race Japanese cars ie 200sx turbo and even the 300 zx twin turbo, yes they are fun to race and drive, but you cant push them hard enough every time i went to the track i will come back with something wrong , the 200sx i had to change the engine twice in one and half year, however my 328I i trusted the car enough to drive it to the track race it all day and drive back, no worries, just change the oil and filter regularly and realy nothing will go wrong with it, i would recomend this car to anyone great looking and very quick it will rival most cars on the road.
Best of luck
