Model Overview

The BMW 3 Series is a compact executive car manufactured by the German automaker BMW since May 1975.

It is BMW’s best-selling model, accounting for around 30% of the BMW brand’s annual total sales (excluding motorbikes).

“The most important thing is the cars are fun.
If your car isn’t, you’ve obviously got the wrong car.”

BMW released its E21 in the wake of the 1973 oil crisis, nearly doubling BMW’s worldwide auto sales figures in three years. The 3 Series has also maintained BMW’s racing heritage. The M version of the 3 Series, M3, debuted in 1988.

BMW E21 – (1975–1983) 3 Series
