This Man Has One of the Largest Collections of 3-Series BMWs in the World

The BMW 3-Series nameplate represents a milestone in the automotive world. It has been used to designate two- and four-door compact sedans from the Bavarian manufacturer ever since they began phasing out the also very successful 2002 model, around about the year 1975.

Despite the fact that BMW decided it was a good idea to change all that for their latest generation car, and call the two-door variant the 4-Series, even though most say it’s an unwise move on their part, that does nothing to dilute the impressive history behind it.

Now, BMW is sharing the story of a 3-Series collector from Germany, who owns 10 examples, covering most of the model’s history. He keeps the cars in his barn and cherishes them deeply, primarily because they were sporty cars with solid engineering and simple, timeless styling (particularly the E30) – he says most can still be called advanced today, in an age when independent rear suspension is seen as a costly addition to most cars, with negligible improvements in ride and handling…

Still, this would not have been an official BMW video if they didn’t plug one of their new models through it. In this instance, it’s the 3-Series GT, the longer, taller and more practical alternative from within the range. Check out the video below.
