    i assume its 1.6 liter - one word - underpowered. Even if its 1.8 or 2.0 - the 3 is too heavy to be pushed with a 4 cylinder. Unless you want to be smoked by 1.3 liter cars.

    The 316i will be producing around 122hp - good enough if you are just puttering in the city.

    Well, that will depend on the person. But for a 3500 lbs car with 122 hp = about 28.69 lb/hp compared to about 20 lb/hp for a typical 1.3/1.6 jap car. I've driven my friend's E36 318is and its just too underpowered (compared to a 1.6 corolla).

    I guess it's a good deal since the base model 320i is priced at 2.3+M. At least you get the new body.

    im not really a fan of "all-show-no-go" car. i wouldn't wanna be smoked by a 1.3 liter economy car just to "look good" - but its your money - so its up to you my friend :-)
