BMW 3 Series Coupe (2006–2012)

Last updated 9 November 2018

Stylish four-seater coupe. Plenty of room for four and their luggage. Comes with a great choice of engines including frugal diesels. 335i is outstanding to drive.
Tight in the back for 6-footers. Some very serious problems with first generation 335i.

Unlike previous 3-Series coupes, this one shares no body panels at all with the saloon. It sits on a long wheelbase, helping reduce pitching over undulations. Somehow it's been "de-Bangled" of the sometimes-odd styling quirks of all recent BMWs. You don't have to persuade yourself it's a good-looking car. It simply is. Though a bigger car than the E46 coupe, on average it's ten kilos lighter. And it's very practical, too.
