What should I look for in a used BMW 3 Series saloon?

Most examples of this generation 3 Series will still be found within the BMW franchised dealer network, so they’ll most likely still look like new. Do all the usual checks, though, such as looking for kerb damage on alloy wheels, scratches to the paintwork, damage to the bumpers and any stains in the carpet and or seat upholstery. All the electronics should still work, but they’ll still be covered under warranty if anything isn’t operating as it should.
