From the very first BMW 3 Series, the E21, elegance and sporty performance were key to the car’s design, both inside and out. Refined lines ran from bonnet to boot, while the central part of the dashboard was aligned towards the driver, adding to the unique experience of being behind the wheel.

The front of the car features LED headlights as standard. Moments Headlights automatically adjust illumination to specific driving conditions. This LED package also includes cornering lights, which anticipate bends by turning before the car, allowing optimal safety at crucial moments. Additionally, LED fog lights sit below the headlights, adding to the car’s agile look and casting a light extremely similar to daylight in murky conditions.
The remodelled front bumper sits in perfect harmony with the intricately designed air inlets in the front apron, emphasising the car’s broad stance. From the rear, the new bumper continues the dynamic shape, while the L-shaped LED lights are set wide apart, ensuring a distinctive look even when the sun goes down.
Wider exhausts, new athletic rim designs and a fresh choice of colours,such as Mediterranean Blue, round off the powerful look of the world’s most distinctive sports sedan.
