Few words about BMW 3 series:
The predecessors of BMW 3 series was BMW 02-series cars, derived from so-called "New Class" BMW 1500 sedan but with two doors and lower, flatter body and less roomier for passengers: BMW 1600-2, BMW 1502 and BMW 2002. By the time the 3 series was launched in 1975, 340,000 of 02-series cars had been sold.
The 3 series, designed by French designer Paul Bracq, had a plain and simple cabin, but was the first BMW to feature a centre console and cockpit angled towards the driver, something to become the hallmark in most subsequent BMW models.
Currently, there are six generations of BMW 3 series in five modifications: saloon, coupe, convertible, touring and GT (for F30 body only).
