    Hey everyone,

    New to the site, and new to the world of BMW's too so I'm venturing into the great unknown...

    ..anyway I have just bought a '98 318i in Dark Blue (dunkelblau...) - got it pretty cheap due to having 185k on the clock. Not in too bad a condition and has been subtly modified in it's life.

    Ok some pics.







    It does have a couple of little problems. Firstly the starter motor is on it's way out as it takes a couple of tries to finally catch. I have already got a secondhand good replacement and I'm waiting on my mechanic to fit it....you think I'm gonna do it??

    Has got the old E36 steamy headlight problem too.

    Worst bit by far is that it's drinking petrol like George Best. I'm lucky to see 21-23 MPG even when I'm driving it normally. 120 miles on £20 is about what I'm getting. I have no idea what the problem could be, so I'm kinda hoping you guys would help me out? Pleeeease??

    Firstly......welcome to bimmerforums mate.

    Secondly you will get a better response when asking questions if you post the actual question in the dedicated sub-forum. So if you find the E36 sub-forum and title your question something like the following:

    1997 318 Saloon - Very poor MPG

    Hope this helps you resolve your problems.

    Amos
