There are few more iconic model lines in the prestige car market than the BMW 3 Series line-up.
Launched in 1975, it was the second-generation E30, released in 1983, that better reflected BMW's rear-wheel drive compact sedan aspirations.
Those aspirations were even more apparent with the M3, which debuted in 1986, and reset the bar by which rear-drive sporting sedans would be forever judged.
Now into its sixth generation, the line consists of the four-door 3 Series sedan and convertible ranging from the $78,900 3 Series 320i M Sport to the $106,200 3 Series 3 M340I Xdrive. Also - somewhat unusually - a two-door derivative known as the 4 Series. There is an increased focused on its M3 and M4 sports car lines, as well, with the largest array of fast 3 Series ever derived now on sale.
