BMW 3 Series E46 (1998 - 2005)

Last updated 9 November 2014

Decent rear wheel drive handling. Some status. Wide choice second-hand.
Unremarkable looks. Handling not quite as enjoyable as E36. Turbo and injector problems with diesels. Expensive problems at 10 years old +.

Further report of separate rear spring breakages reported over the years on a 149,000 mile 2002 BMW E46 330D Touring.
