As four-seat coupes go, few cars are as good looking or as enjoyable to drive as the BMW 3-Series Coupe - it's a classic design with a sleek yet understated air while inside it's beautifully finished with top grade materials. Only minor elements such as the door handles are carried over from the 3-Series saloon - the rest is bespoke to the Coupe.

Buying used

The best place to find low mileage, well cared for examples is from a BMW dealer, through the firms Approved Used scheme. There are only two trim levels - the SE is the base model but it's still well equipped while the M Sport comes with a bodykit plus sporty styling inside.

There will always be demand for a well-maintained BMW on the used market, whether petrol or diesel. Ensure it is priced sensibly - used car buyers won't expect to pay extra for options like high beam assistant, adaptive headlights or active steering - and you'll have no trouble selling it.
