    Mahal maintenance sa Casa (obviously). But you can buy consumables sa labas naman (just like our Volvo).

    Fuel economy is good. Solid 8km/L sa urban cycle yung sa pinsan ko. Baka mas mataas pa kung open roads kaso he seldon takes it on long trips. May ibang car siya for that.

    The vehicle itself is not really that exotic in construction. If you are good with a wrench, you can work on it.

    this prefacelifted 3series only had 2 variants here before
    318i and 325i. walang 316i and all AT. 4speeds on 4cyl. 5AT on 325i. engines were not yet valvetronic equipped.


    yung facelifted E46 316i was actually a 1.8L 115hp (the only non valvetronic left)5MT only unit.
    yung facelifted E46 318i was 2.0L sort of like replaced the E36 320i although four banger na lang sya. horsepower is 143. ang its 5AT only.

    i think i have to disagree coz i have a friend who has a pre facelifted bmw na 316i e46 manual black ... i thought that it was a 318i until i saw the interior manual tranny etc he set it up with hamann rims hamann interior etc etc

    To your point, may nabasa nga ako dito na nagsabi, people buy the 316i para lang masabi na naka BMW sila. I've never heard anybody say people buy a Vios para lang sabihin na naka Toyota sila, i mean, what's the difference? People should respect other people's preference and not be quick to judge.

    based sa mga replies and other threads, parang masyado ang pagmamaliit sa E36 na 316i? dahil ba entry-level model lang to? parang napaka-snobbish naman ata. yes, it only has 108 bhp, but as pointed out, not everything is about power. syempre gusto mo rin minsan yun comfort and of course, the "prestige" of owning a BMW. parang alaskado ka pa pag naka 316 ka dito, e sa US nga 318 kawawa din e. for me, ang kagandahan kasi sa 316 is, manual sya. i dont like A/Ts. meron din ata 318s na manual pero bihira ang 318s dito e. the fuel economy of the 316i is also an advantage. the 320s are A/Ts for sure and will not be as fuel-efficient as the 316.

    tska bakit pag 316, ok lang pag E46? pano if you prefer the more "masculine" body and lines of the E36? mejo rounded na kasi yun E46 so for me, it's not as imposing. ang ganda pa rin of course, pero the bigger body of the E36 just appeals to me better.

    so, is there an anti-316 feeling around here? or is it just me?

    if you want bmw 4 cylinder power, get the 318is! it's manual and has 140 hp i beleive . . . and consumption is still very economical

    316i - bang for the buck bimmer. fuel consumption is great! and just like any other car, as long as you are very careful with your car, maintenance will never be an issue! besides, just by the fact that you own a bmw or chose to buy a bmw, you acknowledge the reality of maintaining one - so please, no complaints

    and true, at the same time, as we buy 316i, we know we are not buying a powerful car - put a practical luxurious car. it shares the same body, safety features, rigidity and feel as its bigger engined brothers in the same platform. so, no loss at all from my point of view. how i see it, own one, dress it up (simple and clean), plus its great fuel consumption, we have a winner!

    power from an e36, get an ///M3
    US: 240hp
    Euro: 280hp
    Evo version: 320hp

    for non ///M3
    4cylinder: 318is: 140hp
    6cylinder: 325i: 190hp
    6cylinder: 330i: 220hp

    316i = luxury, manual transmission, fuel economy and it being bmw - ultimate driving machine

    enough said! hehehe

    Pssst ... atin-atin lang 'to ha Hanggang 328i lang ang E36 non-///M3.

    FWIW, BMW has done a good job on their 1.6li engine. The fact that E36's were equipped with 1.6 to 3.2li, petrol or diesel engine means that the E36 was meant to appeal to a broad range of people with different needs, and not everyone.
