The stylish, yet conservative BMW 3 Series Sedan has long been the benchmark for a compact sports sedan and a "dream car" for young affluent buyers. The 4-door version is a nice blend of practicality and driving pleasure. Models offered are the 325 and 330 which correspond to different inline six cylinder engines. Both available with manual and automatic transmissions. With either the all-wheel or standard rear-wheel drive this is a well balanced vehicle offering precision performance and sharp handling.
