Im hoping to become a E36 318ti auto SE owner
Been to have a look at a 1997 model year car today, seems all in order, full bmw s/h, everything was working nicely
One thing that did seem odd was that the exhaust seemed quite noisy when driving, from my brief look under the car, the system seemed to new, so to me it seemed to be the from the downpipe area, is this a common fault
It didnt really sound like a blow, just a bit noisier than I was expecting, the trader said they do tend to be a bit like that, but, I remain unconvinced
Driving wise, it was nice and tight, with a smooth automatic gearbox change, tried sports and economy mode, dont quite know what the m button was for, in fact the gearbox was much smoother than my current Jaguar XJ
Im looking to downsize from my 97 Jaguar 3.2 XJ, mainly because its so juicy around town (22mpg) can anyone tell me what the real world fuel figures are likely to be for a 318ti auto ?
Thanks, in advance
