BMW 1 & 3 Series 1991-2007

Three Series BMWs built during the past 30 years remain easy to find and in some cases ridiculously cheap.

328i Highline convertibles at $10,000 cost around a tenth of new price, with 2000-06 versions of the 330i coupe holding around the same proportion.

More recent 335i models are still depreciating and with plenty in the market, buyers who haggle could benefit.

| Buyer's Guide: BMW E46 330CI 1997-2005

Turbo-fed 135i cars are doing better in the private market than dealer-land where the potential for warranty issues can be a problem.

For a Bimmer that’s proven, practical and cheap, consider the 318Ti Hatch.

135i Coupe/Conv. $22,145 [22] 

318Ti $6665 [30]

328i Sedan/Coupe $5215 [19] 

328i Conv. $5700 [16]

330Ci Coupe $9590 [28] 

335i Coupe 2006-08 $17,725 [22]
