I've just paid €14,500 for a 2002 3 Series with 85,000 on the clock.
Apart from some wear on the centre console beside the window rocker switches, you'd put it down as having only done half that mileage. If this car had ended up back with a trader, the temptation to clock it would have been immense, so I'd strongly suggest a thorough check of the service history before buying, as it's just not showing the miles.
It's a really nice car, with very few on the road, so at roughly £10,000 sterling for a four-year-old car, it's a genuine bargain.
This is my first BMW which I swapped from a Merc SLK due to current milage and have found performance good and comfort excellent.
Economy is good but nowhere near claimed figures, I average 45mpg (I saw up to 33 on the Merc over similar journeys).
Rear access and exit is not easy-but there is some which is better than SLK. I find the steering wheel controls for stereo are a waste of time and I am not overly impressed with the sound system.
Overall though as a comfortable, safe and brisk transport, I am very impressed.
I own this car. Great performance for a diesel engine. Turbo kicks in at about 2000 revs and you're off.
Being a diesel engine you save loads on running costs. Evo IV compliant means cheaper road tax and company tax!
Well built, can't tell its a diesel engine, low noise, great pick up.
No complaints at all about this car. Well happy with my £18500 purchase. Joy to drive.
Inside is well set out, controls easy to reach. Well designed. Only a two door, but I dont have to sit in the back. Not had any major complaints from my passengers.
