The BMW E36 platform replaced the earlier E30-based 3-series cars for the 1991 model year. Described as having a ‘dolphin shape’, the BMW E36 provided a full line of vehicles over a nine-year span ranging from a 3-door hatchback to an estate.


For the sportier set, the 3-series offered both a coupe and a convertible. Smaller than a full-size luxury car, the 3-series is a great choice for a young executive. Step up in style.
