Which used BMW 3 Series saloon should I buy?

The BMW 320d Efficient Dynamics, which had the best blend of economy, emissions and useable performance, is the pick of the range. But choose any 320d and you’ll be getting a fast and frugal car.

SE models often had lighter, brighter interiors with beige leather and wood, while the more popular M Sport versions had darker, more overtly sporty looking materials (and a firmer ride due to their stiffer suspension).
