Written 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. 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.
