Ownership cost

What used BMW 3 Series saloon will I get for my budget?

Prices for a used BMW 3 Series start at around £23,000 for a 2019 car in the entry-level SE version. You'll need between £25,000 and £30,000 for the majority of 2019 and 2020 cars, depending on trim and engine spec. Because this is a fairly new model, its prices are still changing relatively rapidly.

Car Tax (VED)

This generation of BMW 3 series will be charged under the current flat rate fee road tax system, but you may have to pay attention to the spec of your 3 Series because some versions bust past the £40,000 limit, so higher-spec versions could be a lot more expensive to tax than lesser ones. Current charges are £150 a year for the VED and £325 a year for the supplementary tax. To find out more about the current road tax costs, click here for further information.

Servicing costs

It’ll cost you more to service a 3 Series than it would to maintain an equivalent Audi A4. You can split the cost up into monthly payments of £25 for the BMW, but an Audi would be less expensive at £19.50. However, you’ll be spending less than someone driving a Mercedes C-Class, because that’ll set you back £32 a month. 

Another thing to consider as a running cost would be Apple CarPlay, because BMW now charges a fee for the privilege of connecting your iPhone to your car. It’s currently set at £295 for unlimited access and won't be transferable to the next owner.
