I'm hoping to get a bit advice about the E46 3-series coupe as I'm starting a new job soon and need something comfy and slightly more business-looking than my ZR (fun car but maybe not the best image )
Insurance is still stupid for me despite being 26 with 7 odd years NCB due to my postcode so looking at the E46 318Ci as a possible option although I'm not sure on a couple of things that I'm sure someone can help out with...
- I'm guessing it might be a bit thirsty but how bad is it likely to be on an 8 mile journey each way (stop start dual carriageway driving)?
- what's the clutch like on these? Part of the reason for not wanting to use the ZR is that it does need slamming into gear which is great for blasting round corners but not so fun in a traffic queue!
I like the look of Arthur's one I've seen in Arthur's Bmw 318Ci M Sport so if you're reading this let me know how you've got on with yours
