Used BMW 3-Series Coupé (1999 - 2006) Review

There was a time when the 3-Series Coupe was merely a two-door saloon. Then BMW realised it could charge a premium for it and it became a must-have for the up-and-coming executive.

There was a time when the 3-Series Coupe was merely a two-door saloon. Then BMW realised it could charge a premium for it and it became a must-have for the up-and-coming executive. The 3-Series coupe retains what's great about a BMW: sophistication, superb engineering and stylishly subtle styling. And it's bound to make your neighbours green with envy.

What owners say...

 Decent boot space, surprising rear leg room, electric/heated seats are awesome. It's a 2003 model so no bluetooth or sat-nav. Probably something that I will look at in the future.

 Rear seats fold - otherwise it's not practical. Front seats are comfortable and spacious.

 The boot is very generous, I managed to fit an Ikea Armchair, some flat packed shelving units and bags with the rear seats folded down on one trip. Cabin space is also very good and 4 adults can sit...
