The BMW 3 series may be the most popular ‘Driver's Machine' in the US. It has accounted for 30% of BMW sales, has been on Car & Driver's ‘Ten Best' list consistently, 23 times from 1992 through 2013. It is a popular performer on the race track, yet is affordable and reliable.
The 3 series has gone through six generations of improvements. The 1.8 liter 318i version was popular in Europe because of its under 2 liter tax structure in many European countries; in the US it was popular for crisp performance, reliability and economy.
The first generation 3 series car was built from 1975 to 1983, as a 316, 318 and 320, but only the 320i was imported into the US. The second generation 3 series also offered a 318 variant beginning in 1982, and was powered by the 1.8 Liter 89 hp fuel injected gas engine, although it was not introduced to the US market until 1984. This generation was available in 2 dr. coupes, 4 dr. sedans, 2 dr. convertible, and a 5 dr. ‘estate' wagon. A higher performance version was offered as an M version, and had more power and crisper handling.
By 1989, a new M42 chain-driven DOHC 16 valve engine was fitted, putting out 138 hp, but the chain drive proved problematic in early models, as did the sealed crankcase. In 1991, the 1.8 liter engine was upgraded to 2 liters, and the 318i was no longer offered.
In 1991, the 318i was offered again on the E36 platform and was offered as a sedan, a coupe in 1992, and a cabriolet in 1993. In 1996, a short tail hatchback called the 318i Compact, popular in Europe, was introduced into the US market.
