I love to drive this BMW E46--they say it's the Ultimate Driving Machine. It's safe and feels solid even if you're driving past the speed limit :-). You'll love driving it to Tagaytay or Bagiuo. Sarap! You'll also love driving it in the city--nice automatic seat reclining controls, cold Aircon, and the BMW prestige makes it a cool car to drive.
RSF: Recently, since becoming a new Dad, I've only been driving my BMer to the country club, supermarket and church.I'm selling this car because I've become a new father and I need a bigger car where Mommy, Baby and Yaya and Kuya can fit. I also need a car that I can drive on Tuesdays (color coded plate ending 3).
Prestige of driving the Ultimate Driving Machine:
Driving a BMW comes with the feeling of prestige, seeing the blue-and-white BMW badge on your hood makes you smile.
This car has auto climate controlled air, remote central locking, power mirrors and windows, and CD sound systems. There are some minor issues with the tint (driver's side needs replacement), and some of the plastic moulding where you put coins etc; I took out the seat covers, but you can put new ones to make the car cooler during the summer months (since the black faux leather seats can become quite hot to the skin during summer).
*A package of front and side airbags, plus ABS antilock brakes, traction control, with standard electronic stability control from 2003 make the 3-Series an attractive choice for parents worried about the safety of their kids.
The 318i uses regular unleaded and are E10 compatible. BMW claimed the 1.9-litre four-cylinder 318i would average 7.0 L/100 km to 8.3 L/100 km.
I have forged a good relationship with a reliable and experienced European car specialist (based in Muntinlupa) where I have my BMW maintained and serviced for oil changes, tune ups, and repairs. So far, so good. It beats the Casa. Can refer to you when needed.
Just put new batteries, newly serviced for oil change, check of fluids, suspension, etc. It's ready to go!
At P257,000 -- this is a read good deal.
