The letter «i» meant using injector Bosch K-Jetronic (also known as a CIS, Continuous Injection System) instead of the Solex carburetor. The appearance of the first cars of the third series with E21 body defined the direction of work of designers of the BMW company on long time. And it no wonder: the world-famous designers such as Paul Marriage, William Chamberlain and Klaus Exchange have worked with this car. The fifth generation of sedans of the third series (now with the body E90), and the models BMW 318i models started being created in 2005.
The second advantage of the BMW 318i among of its "brothers" - the car is issued at the Kaliningrad automobile plant "Avtotor". Yes, yes, the "advantage"! As even experts of the Bavarian company recognized an excellent quality of the assembling of Russian cars. In addition to it - adaptation of "Russians" of BMW 318i to our roads and climate.

But they have common features - the high quality inherent in cars of the Bavarian company. And this applies to both - driving performance and comfort of the car, since the principle of the Bavarian company is "pleasure of a driving" continues to remain the main thing in work of experts throughout many years.
