My 1997 318is - Update

by John Avis | January 27, 2012

Thought I better stop worrying what it looks like and start sorting out the mechanical issues. First step, raise it up to get enough clearance ready to give the engine a wash tomorrow so I can try and work out where the oil leak is coming from.

Cleaning day. I stripped the interior of everything that came off reasonably easily... Seats, console, glovebox, door trims, and various other pieces.

Just bought a 1997 318is for $500. Bargain or money pit?

I have been looking for a car for my wife to transport our first born when he arrives in April. Being a three time 318is owner I liked the idea of getting her a 318is 4-door auto.

BMW M42 318is Starting fault - fluctuating revs

by John Avis | July 3, 2010

When I start my M42 powered 1994 E36 318is the revs jump up to about 1500 then drop down to almost stalling speeds, then go up and down a few more times, then stabilise at normal idle speed, about 800rpm.

Review of BMW 318is (E36) 1992 - 1998

by John Avis | July 31, 2008

Almost exactly a year after the introduction of the E36 generation of BMW 3-series sedan came the first of the coupes, the 318is. Although the coupe looks very similar to the sedan, virtually every body panel is different. The cabin is set further back, the boot lid is shorter and the roofline is lower. At the front, the headlights and grille are the same. At the rear the coupe's rear lights are wider.


About Me

I am a bit of a 3 series fanatic, having owned a couple of E30s and a few E36s, plus a few parts cars. I like the combination of the compact size, good performance and handling, and that they are more sports sedan than an impractical and extrovert sports car. This blog is a place to share my experience and knowledge.
