Here we have a car that is one of my all time favourites - The BMW 3 series combines all the usual attributes of "The ultimate driving machine" which have ensured this has always been the benchmark among sports saloons. This November 2009 (59 plate) car is a sought after 318 Diesel in M-Sport specification. It's a smart looking, and powerful 4 door which combines the luxury and performance you associate with the BMW brand along with 53 mpg combined fuel economy. The powerful, yet frugal 2 litre diesel engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission which is a sought after option on this car that cost an additional £1460 when new. With this engine and gearbox the 3 series is a very relaxing car to drive - it even has cruise control which is a joy on the motorway.
When you approach our 3 series the 1st thing that strikes you is that gorgeous "Le Mans" blue metallic coachwork. The pictures really do not do this colour justing and it is my favourite colour for these cars - well worth the additional £580 it would have cost when new. M-Sport models of this car are highly sought after with their lower ride and sporty sill extensions which give the car a more aggressive, ground-hugging stance than a regular 3 series. The front bumper has a more aggressive shape than the regular 3 series and it houses sporty front fog lights. 17" M-Sport alloys fill the arches and are shod with good quality tyres. Step inside and the sporty feel continues with alcantara trimmed seats and a chunky 3 spoke M-Sport steering wheel. BMW's legendary build quality is clearly evident with well chosen materials and a well laid out dashboard which is uncluttered and easy to use. As well as being more sporting, this M-Sport model also exudes luxury feel with dual climate controlled air conditioning, a front centre armrest and a full electric pack. It is worth noting that this car is a facelifted model with an improved design over earlier cars - Cars registered before September 2008 may look similar but if you park them next to each other you will see the subtle but effective improvements which BMW made to create the car that you see here today - This revised M-Sport model is well worth the extra outlay - particularly one as well looked after and as well equipped as this car!
BMW market themselves as "THE ULTIMATE DRIVING MACHINE". With that in mind, it came as no surprise that the 3 series is the best drive in its class.The taught, rear-wheel drive chassis offers near perfect 50/50 weight distribution. Sharp and responsive steering make this one of the finest drives or any 4 door saloon whilst BMW's superb driving position ensures you will always feel comfortable behind the wheel and the car offers excellent support and comfort. Through twists and turns the 3 series is guaranteed to raise a smile whilst out on the open road, it soaks up the miles with ease and offers effortless high speed motorway cruising. BMW are in my opinion one of the finest car makers in the world. The 3 Series shows their dedication to building "The ultimate driving machine" with near perfect weight distribution and an elongated wheelbase created by having those front wheels pushed right forward and the engine set back in the chassis so that its weight is behind the front wheels - thus eliminating the under-steer you experience in rival offerings. Whilst this might seem like a load of technical waffle but the benefits become crystal clear the moment you put the 3 series through a series of challenging corners. Yes, there are other cars that offer similar performance and prestige but there is only one 3 series and no other car I know of in this price range combines those elements as convincingly as this car.
This car looks simply stunning as you can see in the photos and I for one have fallen in love with her during a brief 70 mile test drive. You can bid with confidence secure in the knowledge that we would not want anything less than 100% customer satisfaction (see feedback for evidence of this). Viewing is recommended to fully appreciate what a fine example this is. Hopefully the supersize photos will do the car some justice but in all honesty it really does need to be seen and driven to be fully appreciated...
They don't label themselves "The ultimate driving machine" for nothing!! BMW are most famous for being a superb drivers car. This 3 series may be a highly competent 5 seater which achieves 53 mpg combined fuel economy, but is in every way a true BMW - A true drivers car. You sit in supportive, yet comfortable alcantara (fake suede) seats with a chunky 3 spoke steering wheel for a sporting, tactile feel. Our 3 series has push button start, and even before you press the start button you get a sense of power and control. The driving position on a 3-series has always been one of my favourites with virtually no wheel arch intrusion meaning you are able to sit dead straight with no offset to the pedals. This uncompromised driving position is typical of BMW's constant drive for perfection in every detail of their cars.
Press the "start" button and the 2 litre turbo-diesel power-plant settles to a smooth, quiet idle. The 318d is will cruise along with an eerie silence and all the comfort of a large petrol engine and has superb performance. The 0-60 mph sprint takes just 9 seconds with a top speed of 130 mph (not tested). All BMWs handle the twists and turns with ease, but this is even more evident in M-Sport derivatives such as this where the lower, sports suspension and wider alloy wheels make this car an absolute hoot to drive. The turn in is sharp and responsive with the taut chassis being aided by cornering brake control and BMW's DTC stability and traction control along with responsive ABS brakes. Of course you can all the electronic aids off and further exploit the limits of BMW's fine chassis - although this is not recommended on the public road. With perfect weight distribution, rear wheel drive and an advanced traction control system to keep the power in check, the 318d is great fun but also superbly safe and predictable.
The beauty of a diesel 3 series is that whilst it is an impressive high performance machine which oozes class, it is also a very easy car to live with and extremely cheap to run. These 318d models are superb all-rounders. Despite the sporty looks and impressive level of performance on offer this car still exceeds 50mpg economy and road tax will cost just £145 a year. All the controls are well laid out and the visibility is excellent. The superb driving position ensures drivers of all shapes and sizes will be comfortable behind the wheel of the 3 series. I have to admit the the addition of an automatic gearbox in this car makes it all the more enjoyable to drive with smooth changes through the 6 well chosen ratios and a tiptronic manual function when you're in the mood for greater control. This auto box combined with the cars cruise control make it extremely enjoyable on the motorway where it is relaxing and very well planted at speed. Rear reversing sensors aid parking maneuvers and along with the auto 'box ensure this is a very easy car to drive.
Having covered 82k miles from new, our 318D M SPORT shows very little sign of any wear and drives like new. The power delivery is still instantaneous, the turn in is still sharp and the change on the auto gearbox is fast and smooth. You would be hard pushed to find a better example. I personally enjoyed every minute behind the wheel, and I'm confident you will too! You are more than welcome to call me and arrange a test drive prior to bidding. My number is 07932-873646 and the BMW is fully insured for demonstration purposes...

Our BMW is a genuine 2 owner car which was part exchanged into a local main dealers with a full service history (which I will list below). It has obviously been a well cared for car and is guaranteed to turn heads thanks to its fantastic looks and condition. The exterior is dent free and is free from nasty scratches. Inside the interior trim is similarly well presented being free from stains, rips and odours. The 17" alloy wheels are in excellent condition and are shod with good tyres all-round. All the cars electric goodies work perfectly including the climate controlled air conditioning which blows ice cold. Whilst it is a used car, and will have minor imperfections in keeping with its age and mileage, I very much doubt you will find a nicer example than this. The only minor imperfection we noted on inspection of this car was some very light marks on the rear bumper, doubtless caused by loading / unloading. These are not detrimental to the overall excellent presentation of this car.
This is a genuine 2 owner car with the last, local owner having had the car since it was just a year old. I have a large A4 folder of receipts for this car as well as the full V5,and an MOT until February 2015 which was passed with no advisories. The car's service history is as follows;
- 13/08/2010 - Car supplied by Stratstone BMW Harrogate (approved used)
