a BMW 318i pushed to the limit on the Autobahn!

Dating from 1998, this old BMW 318i developing 118 hp is not necessarily fast on the motorway. This is what this Youtubeur wanted to verify on a portion at unlimited speed in Germany.

Introduced in 1998, the BMW 3 Series E46 is the 4e generation of this line which began in 1975. Placed at the entry level behind the anemic 316i, the 318i has attracted many buyers who wanted to afford a BMW without necessarily wanting a mechanical powerful.

Under the hood, there is a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder unit developing 118 hp. Combined with a 5-speed manual gearbox, this engine is quite sufficient in everyday life without however being a war lightning.

TopSpeedGermany YouTube channel purchased a 1998 318i to find out how fast this car can ride on a stretch of German motorway at unlimited speed.

Laborious acceleration

As one could imagine, the needle of the speedometer does not tend to panic at all… Far from it.

The accelerations are not not really vigorous even if the reports fall apart over time. In 5e, the low power of the engine means that not much happens above 180 km / h. It takes forever for the car to stabilize around 190 km / h on the odometer.

With a tachometer that’s not far from the red zone, the brave 23-year-old 318i doesn’t have to be ashamed after all. She always does very correctly son job !

To see our “BMW granny” thoroughly on the highway, it takes place just below:
