BMW 3 Series 1985 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the BMW 3 Series 1985 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Bmw for beginners
THE 1985 BMW 318i is quite a good choice to learn in. It's a rear-wheel-drive car, which I prefer when learning about how a car handles, and your idea of buying a manual is likewise a good one. The 3-Series is a solid car that stands up well over time and with accumulated mileage, but going back to 1985 increases the risk of trouble with any car. By now, it will have 200,000km-plus on the odometer. This isn't a huge problem, but it should be cause for caution. Any car you buy will probably have had several owners, and not all will have followed BMW's service recommendations. Have a BMW expert check it out for you. It might cost a few dollars, but it might save even more in the long run. Also check the car's service record, particularly looking for evidence the cam timing belt has been changed. Expect to pay between $3000 and $5000 depending on the condition, and buy the best car you can afford.Show more
