BMW 3 Series

BMW 3 Series’ history in just a few minutes

I know a lot about the BMW 3 Series but do you think you know a lot about the BMW 3 Series?

We know you do, but BMW certainly want everybody else to know that their small sports sedan is not only the best option now, but it’s also been in that position for several years.

There’s no more than 3 minutes and 30 seconds that are meant to take you through the generations but, weirdly, it doesn’t feel like there’s not enough time.

Maybe the script called for the new youtube video to have the same figures in duration as one of the awesome 330i models the Bavarians create.

Going through the shortlist, the BMW 3 Series exists as an entity since 1975. The compact executive’s car has been in existence for quite some time.

Originally built as a two door sedan, the BMW 3 Series started to pick up the options on the number of doors, body shape and option of a roof.

Plenty of less obvious options have since come and gone and, of course, the presence of the M3 in this list is quite significant for history.

My favorite in the lineup is the E36 version, the one that comes with a squared stance and is a really sharp suit.

Unfortunately for me, getting hold of such a car in good condition these days is tricky and if you want one that hasn’t been molested, that’s even worse.

The rest of the lineup is standing tall and some of them are among the most desirable of classics.
