Get the 318i
Don't believe everything you hear.
Comparing an E34 to a 318 is apples to oranges.
#1 Insurance will be the same, collision should be similar.
#2 Performance wise, they both equally suck.
#3 With that many KM's it will need work, as would any car.
#4 Do you want cheap parts? go 318
#5 Do you want luxery and all the features found on modern cars? Go E34.
