If you have $25,000 to spend on a car you have tons of quality choices, but it can be awfully hard to beat a gently used BMW 3 Series. And right now is a great time to pick up a “Jalopnik Special” 3 Series for a reasonable price and plenty of warranty left.
Come at the king, you best not miss. The BMW 3 Series has been the Omar of the sports sedan game for three decades now, and while its competition is tougher and better than ever, it’s still the reigning champion. What do you need to know before you buy a 3 Series? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in…
I think we can all agree that BMW’s first generation 3-series doesn’t get much love. That shouldn't be the case with today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Alpina-branded turbo however, as it’s a freaking orgy. But, will its price and promise prove anticlimactic?

I don't think there's a better example of good, clean, wholesome fun than driving around an empty parking lot at speed. You can do it in any kind of car, and you can even get your friends and family involved for extra good times.
E30. 'Round about these parts, it's the answer to every question almost a much as the Miata is. And why wouldn't it be? With a combination of understated good looks, compact size and rear-wheel-drive, it's hard to go wrong with a 1980s 3-Series. It's even better in super-sexy M3 trim.
You know, I consider myself a pretty lucky guy overall. I have this sweet gig at Jalopnik, an awesome dog, and I live in a city where breakfast tacos are readily available. But lately, I can't shake the feeling that something is missing in my life.

Chris Harris was looking for cheap oversteer. So he and his mates procured a BMW 325i rally car. This video chronicles their first gravel test day, which as you'll see, was a shambles thanks to a clapped-out Range Rover and a dodgy trailer.
As car lovers we like to think we have a good idea what's going to happen when we hop into a car we've never driven before. Whether it's a pre-conceived notion about how truly terrible a car is or expected automotive euphoria behind the wheel of a car we've always lusted after, even if we don't think we know it all we…
As car lovers there are few things worse to us than people who take it upon themselves to vandalize other people's cars. Yet judging from the relative frequency with which it occurs, there is still a decent sized section of the population who feels it acceptable and necessary to destroy automobiles.
BMW will be airing a few different advertisements during the Super Bowl later on today showing off the 2012 3 series.
The introduction of the first BMW 3 Series in July 1975 marked the beginning of one of the most remarkable success stories in BMW — and general automotive — history.
