Manufactured by German automaker BMW, the 318i is an entry level compact executive car that replaced BMW's popular New Class vehicle in 1975. The release of the 1998 BMW 318i in late 1997 marked the beginning of the fourth generation of the series. Changes to the 1998 BMW 318i over previous models included a smaller, 2.5-litre engine. The dashboard clock in the 1998 BMW 318i is so user-friendly that it takes just minutes to set.
