    BMW 3 Series Supertouring

    After seeing a few of these around, I am really thinking about getting one.



    Anyone here know of anyone who owns one of these or know anything more about them?

    nice cars imo, but why a supertouring and not a saloon or a coupe?
    Observe the masses and do the opposite

    Love the tourings, best looking 3 series imo.
    Very comfortable and with so many around you can afford to be choosey. Just for God's sake get a 6 cylinder engine else you'll be getting over taken by milkfloats!

    Too many ideas, never enough money!

    I need plenty of space to hold my photograghy equipment for when I go on trips. Sometimes couple of mates will go with me and they also have a fair bit of equipment with them too

    Not clued up on beemers. Which engines would come with the 6 cylinders? can I assume any engine from 2.0 onwards will do?

    Any model designated 320 or above will have 6-cyl, but a giveaway on de-badged examples are the twin tailpipes.

    No Super, just touring.

    As above you want a 6-cyl, they are all good with the 330 being particularly peachy. The diesels are all excellent but command a high price and usually have done plenty of miles so unless you cover a lot of miles then a petrol probably makes more sense.
