Hi,

Iím new here and to BMWs. Iím looking to buy my first BMW and I have a couple questions. I was just wondering if the 94 318i and 318is have the same motor. I was told it was just the number of doors that change, but I think itís a little more than just that. Also, is there a big difference in weight? I imagine that the 318is is lighter.

Thanks in advance

same motor. for older bmws the last 2 numbers of the model number ex 318is is how big the motor is ex 318is = 1.8L. Everything is the same minus how many doors

The coupe is actually slightly heavier than the sedan by like 75lbs if I remember correctly. The Sedan is 2800 and coupe is 2875lbs.

The TI is 2730lbs if weight is your concern.

except the 95+ 318 1.9L
And the sedan is the heavier one from the coupe, Ti is the lightest.

I think the IS has a sunroof, leather and better audio
