The 3 Series, has been in strong demand for years and in 2005 the new E90 model was launched. It wasn’t just on the surface that the 3 Series experienced some changes, as the range gained a new 1.6l petrol engine to go with its 2.0l, 2.5l and 3.0l siblings, and the 2.0l and 3.0l diesels. There was also an upgrade for the powerful M3, which included a new 4.0l straight six petrol engine producing 414hp.
The later versions of the 3 Series included EfficientDynamics models, which included BMW’s stop-start system.
These new technologies that have appeared on the 3 Series will provide technicians with additional challenges, some of which we have outlined below.
Next month we’ll be looking at the Mini.
If you have expertise, knowledge and insight to share, we would be delighted to hear from you. It will make our Inside Lines feature an even more powerful tool for our workshop readership.
