What should I look for in a used BMW 3 Series estate?
Generally, the BMW 3 Series Touring has a good reputation for reliability, but there are a number of things to check.
The majority of 3 Series came with run flat tyres as standard, but due to the expense of replacing them some owners fitted standard tyres instead. The tyre pressure sensors can fail if replacement tyres don't have exactly the same rolling circumference as the originals.
