BMW 3 Series 1998 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the BMW 3 Series here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Should I upgrade from my 1998 BMW 3-series?
You would be able to move up to a 2011/2012 model for the money you have to spend, and for that you get a much safer car, with much lower kilometres, which should be much more reliable. Even though your 20-year-old car has been very reliable, there’s nothing to say that won’t all change tomorrow, and BMWs can be expensive to fix.
1998 BMW 3-series buyers guide
Yes, it is important to change the coolant, particularly with a BMW with its alloy head. When you do it it’s vital you use the correct coolant as specified in the owner’s manual. Older BMWs, particularly the 3-Series, can be troublesome with high mileage. There are a number of plastic fittings used in the cooling system, including the radiator, and they are known trouble spots. The power steering can also give trouble, the suspension bushes often need replacing, and there are many others. Only buy one if it’s a low mileage car with a known history and a full service record, and only if you’ve got deep pockets.
