BMW 3-Series Coupe (99-06)

Value

3 out of 5

Not cheap, but worth the premium.

Costs

3 out of 5

Spare parts on the pricey side, and main dealer servicing makes your eyes water, but then it never goes wrong.

Driving

4 out of 5

Very sure footed and surprisingly quiet for a rear wheel drive.

Performance

3 out of 5

2 litre engine ok for motorways but lethargic on all other roads.

Very reliable.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Optional sports seats the most comfortable seats of any car I have ever owned.
