Check out real-world situations relating to the BMW 3 Series here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Towing capacity of BMW 325e?

    It's around 1000kg, but I would suggest that you consult a towbar manufacturer like Hayman-Reece to get a more accurate rating.

  • E30 showing age

    THE E30 was a great little car, but it is getting a little long in the tooth and you could expect a few problems. The first couple of owners might have respected it enough to have it serviced properly, but subsequent owners are likely to have neglected it. Regular servicing is the key to a long life. Check the suspension bushes for wear, the engine for sludge and oil leaks, the cooling system for leaks, the clutch for wear and the gearbox for noises that might suggest bearings or gear wear.
