What's the used BMW 3 Series coupe like?

The BMW 3 Series Coupe plays it safe. It takes the tried and tested formula of the excellent 3 Series saloon, and gives it a slightly sportier twist. The result is a car that's spacious and available with a wide range of engines – but that’s not that inspiring to look at.

It's stunning to drive, though, with sharp steering, strong grip and great balance while cornering. The ride is on the firm side, which can be irritating on poor surfaces, but most of the time it's just about acceptable.
