BMW 3 series desirable second time around

The BMW 3 series is the most desirable used car according to one of the UK’s largest online used car retailers

The BMW 3 series is the most desirable used car according to one of the UK's largest online used car retailers. The BMW 3 Series is one of two BMWs in the top three, based on the most frequently viewed cars on the website. Second spot goes to the Audi A4, with the BMW 5-Series in third.

The BMW 3 Series Coupe is a great driver's car with some world-beating engines and the new improved Coupe version adds even sleeker styling and some more efficient engines into that outstanding mix. The car doesn't come cheap but buyers really do get value for their money.  The BMW 3 Series Coupe is available with nine engines ranging from the 320i to the 335 and 420bhp V8 in the BMW M3. Some of the BMW 3 Series are quick; some are economical and most are both. The BMW 3 Series is one of the most cost effective coupes to own even the 335i returns just under 35mpg.

The standard BMW 3 Series Coupe comes in SE trim and that gets buyers 17" alloy wheels, cruise control, xenon headlights with built in daytime running lights, Dakota leather upholstery and dual-zone air-conditioning.  The M Sport trim level comes at a hefty premium of around £2,500 but it does much to enliven the look of the car. The M aerodynamic bodykit is added as are 19" alloy wheels while various M-Sport accessories pop-up inside. As many as 65 per cent of BMW 3 Series Coupe buyers take the M Sport option.
