Fast Facts:
  • In 1991, BMW revitalized the 4 cylinder 3 series in the U.S via the 318i, which was able to bring E30 prices to below $20k for the first time since 1986. While Americans usually prefer more cylinders, BMW thought they could capture some of the M3’s energy and appeal at a much more modest price point
  • The 318i was only offered in 4 door configuration, while the 318is was coupe only. The 4 door 318i weighs 55 lbs more than the coupe @ 2,657 lbs
  • As the 318i models were the cheapest model of the E30 range, no automatic transmission was offered. All 318i and 318is cars are 5spd only
  • The low weight not only makes the car nimble, but it allows for incredible braking performance. Stopping from 60 mph to zero requires only 100 ft – substantially better than the Porsche 911 and Corvette of the same era
  • The available 318is trim was a $1,600 option – for that, you get the M-Technic chassis (thicker sway bars front and rear, M-Technik dampers, and the same basket-weave (Style 5) wheels from the 325is
  • The DOHC 16v M42 engine uses 4 valves per cylinder (just like the M3) and revs to 6400 RPM, making peak power at a stout 6,000. And unlike the 6 cylinder (M20) 325i, the M42 uses a timing chain instead of a timing belt
Key Model Year Changes:
  • First and only year of the M42-powered 318i/318is in the U.S.
  • Electronic central locking (with deadbolt) was added this year to the entire E30 range, as well as a new Master key. Front passenger receives automatic seatbelt tensioner
