Which used BMW 3 Series coupe should I buy?

They're all good, but go for a post-September 2001 car. That's when the BMW 3 Series Coupe gained an uprated chassis, better security and standard air-con across the range.

However, even from its launch in May 1999, it was well equipped: alloy wheels, alarm, anti-lock brakes, traction control and electric windows were standard. Nonetheless, many were stacked with options, so hunt down an SE car with tasty extras. Look especially for leather, sat-nav and xenon headlights, which will improve resale value.
