*Two owners from new
*Always garaged
*Very original throughout


Carrying on from the '02 line-up, the first 3-series set a template for a range that remains highly popular to this day. Offered here is an earliest-generation (E21) 315 model that was in reality a de-tuned 316. Built for three years it wasn't sold in the UK and is consequently a rare find. It has had just two owners from new, the first working at the BMW factory in Munich. The vendor rates body, paintwork, trim and glass as excellent and the interior described as excellent throughout. The engine's starting and running, as well as the running gear are again vendor-assessed as excellent, with the whole car described as perfectly preserved.

An opportunity to purchase a vendor-described perfectly preserved example of a two-owner, first-generation 3-series.
