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

How much does it cost to run a BMW 3 Series saloon?

The only trouble with the BMW 3 Series is that it's so desirable, which keeps resale values high and makes it a more expensive used buy.

However, once you have one, running costs aren't too bad. Four-cylinder petrol cars can return well over 30mpg on a run, and even the six-cylinder models aren't too far behind, as long as you drive gently.
