looking at a 1994 318 cabriolet, Got questions...
 
how much kilometers a tank can the 1.9 liter do?
just looking for something better on gas and summer is coming
any things to look out for when looking at a convertible?
its a power top, i guess they all power tops?

had a 96 318is, only got about 450km per tank driving in the city but i needed a tuneup, you should be able to get between 5-600km per tank

What? Shouldn't you be able to get 500-600 with a 325? I can get 600+ on my 325i. Do the convertibles have smaller tanks?

From what i found out when i was in the market for a E36 Cab, the 318's were the only models to come with NON-POWER tops. Some guys have told me that it goes down easy with one person, but i still think it'd be a pain in the ass.

As for the mileage, considering the power difference between the 6cyl. engine you're not saving much on gas. Take the time and find a 325/8 cab. The 328's had a FULL power top, as opposed to the 325's which had the power top, but you had to lock the top in place!

i guess someone has modded the top then eh? cause the dealer on the phone said it was power...

my old 325 did like 550 a tank, i was hopeing the 318 could do solid 650's
like i wont be driving hard at all either, dont care for power anymore lol

If you were getting 550 with the 325, expect to get a solid 650-700 on the same trek with the 318 (if manual and has been maintained).
My wife has been able to manage 800ish klm in a tank a few times on road trips with a SC'd M44 powered 318is.
FYI M44 1.9l only came out in the later part of 95, a 94 will have the 1.8L M42.

holy shit, looks like my 318 was really messed up then plus my stupid driving lol, the most i ever got out of that car was about 600km on a full tank but that included a trip to niagara,

Thadose 03-19-2008 02:53 PM

turns out the car had kilometers rolled back 100k lol i still like the car, car fax says its 210 and thats still low, not the 115k the dealer is claiming, i wanna offer him 3500 lol he wanted 7

Dealer rolled the odometer back which you have proof of and your still going trust them and buy from there man..:confused: who know's what else they may have changed and screwed with.

NateoriouS 03-19-2008 03:44 PM

Thadose 03-19-2008 04:49 PM

5JABIJ8 03-19-2008 05:20 PM
