Used BMW 3-Series Coupe (1999 - 2006) Comfort

Review by Parkers on
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.

Comfort for rear passengers isn't bad for a coupe. Rear drive layout eats into rear space leaving rear passengers with acceptable rather than generous leg space. Granny might struggle to get in and out. Don’t even think of carrying more than three passengers in one.

3-Series is roomier than the previous generation coupe, but the rear drive does compromise boot capacity a little. Although it's a good effort overall, with very useable space, there are more accommodating rivals available with larger boots.

Behind the wheel

The dials are perfectly sited and all major controls are ready for action and positioned to deliver a sporty ambience throughout the cabin. It’s relatively easy to get comfortable as the driving position can be tailored to suit most needs, but base models feel a bit spartan and disappointing.
