BMW 318i (A) Review
With its revised looks, the new 318i looks apt on taking its German counterparts on. Have you seen its price tag though? Gosh...

It's an ah pek car, but I enjoyed it! `
The used car is flooded with overpriced Japanese and Korean cars due to the high COE. At the same depreciation, you can also get a conti car, the choice is clear. So, a BMW 323i sedan. You will know it's a solid car when the door closes with a loud thud, not a piang. It's a 6 cylinder, so it's smooth but don't expect explosive acceleration. Wind noise and tyre noise is kept to a minimum. Leg space is good at the front and back but the rear centre seat is best kept for children.

Best bang for the buck `
I own a black E90 318i for exactly a year now. It has been a reliable workhorse and a good looker for me. Right out from the showroom, I replaced the standard RFT and rims with the F10 standard rims and non-RFT Michelin PS3. This helps to save >1kg per wheel which translates to quicker off-block performance. The 318i has a higher final drive than 320i which makes the acceleration from the block marginally quicker than the latter. However, it is still slow compared to a FF car of the same capacity.

Excellent Handling and performance! `
Just got a new 318i from PML a week+ ago. The experience is really excellent. Surprisingly the engine is very quiet. Gear change is very very smooth. Bump encounter and handling by the car is excellent too probably due to RWD. Power kicks in at about 2500 to 3000rpm if you tap abit more on the accelerator.But my wife prefer to go slow and let the car pick up gradually. We have no issue on power as I encounter the effective torque working at highway, over takes other cars is a breeze when the engine is engaged. FC wise is ok, cos once the car engage, travel at 80km/h at 1600 RPM, which is equivalent to my ex car toyota-Altis , But without say, just a little tap the car can zoom to 110km/h with 2000RPM only. Exterior is cool with the new added new folds to the center of the bonnet,makes the car looks furious and fast. Nice 17' wheels. Nice new grey for 3 series. Interior is very comfy -can fall alseep anytime . And yes, the sunroof is fun. My kids said feel like the roar of roller coaster when it is open and zooming along highway! The leather seats are of good quality. Portable GPS makes it easy to update maps anytime. Generally, the interior is of good quality and very well built compared to some other German made cars at cheaper pricing. Tried both 3 series and Merz, feel that 3 series handling is exceptional good esp taking turns and corners and very good brake system. Engine is also more quiet.But Merz is also very neat and handsome too : ) I feel very very safe in the car due to its solid structure, built and engine. Parking is so easy with the feather light steering wheel technology.

Great Drive, but be prepared to live with the frequent niggling problems `
Nothing really beats the drive of a BMW. It looks great, turns even better. The ability and poise when accelerating in bends is nothing short of magical. The flip side is, the 320 is rather slow and underpowered. You need a 323 at least to bring out the best in this car. You have to constantly put it in sports mode to get a decent response. Due to its underpowered nature, fuel consumption is around 9km/l. Reliability is also suspect, had to return to AD 4 times within warranty period. After warranty had to spend thousands to repair/replace parts. However i understand the problems are not confined to the 320. If you are willing to spend the time, effort (and money-after warranty) to constantly repair stuff, get the 323 at least, then you'll have the ride of your life.
