Footnotes

  • Ever since the introduction of the original Volkswagen Golf GTI back in 1975 the 'hot hatch' has been an important market sector yet it was not until 1994 that BMW leapt into the fray with the 'Compact'. In order to produce the new model at an affordable price it had to rely as much as was practicable on existing BMW technology and components, so the Compact was based on the contemporary E36 3-Series platform. The latter's wheelbase and front end were retained while the tail of the bodyshell was extensively redesigned, together with the rear suspension, which reverted to the earlier trailing arm arrangement to save space. When launched, the Compact range used four-cylinder engines exclusively and it was not until 1997 that a six became available in the 323ti, its 170bhp in a relatively small bodyshell making for a fast and exciting motor car.

    This automatic transmission left-hand drive 323ti is finished in gold with black cloth interior and is equipped with a sunroof. Offered with full service history, the BMW has covered only 19,463 kilometres (approximately 12,000 miles) from new and is described as in generally excellent condition. The car comes complete with tool kit, owner's manual and wallet, sundry invoices, Swansea V5 document and MoT certificates dating back to 2002.
