NO. I owned a BMW,a '87 325is, and parts cost forced me to sell it. It would have cost me over $400 to do a simple tune up.

Plus the 318i is very slow, around 108hp, and most people buy them to drop in a 2.5 I-6 or similar engine.

Yeah a BMW is very expensive to own especially an older one. I just paid 51 bucks for OEM wipers for my car
