|By Richard Dredge. When the first BMW 3-series models were launched in 1975, they immediately set the standard by which all other medium-size saloon cars were judged. The later E36 and E46 models, on which this book concentrates, continue the BMW tradition of class-leading refinement, enviable build quality and engineering innovation. In the 3-series, BMW has produced one of the most versatile vehicle designs of recent years, allowing the same basic platform to be used for cars as diverse as the entry-level Compact, the Touring estate models, coupés, convertibles, and the racing-inspired M3.
