From 2001 to 2004, there was the second Edition of the BMW 3 Series Compact, which combined the Qualities of the 3 Series with the Dimensions of the Golf class. Motor Comically, it was limited to Four-cylinder petrol and Diesel engines and the only Six-cylinder Engine to the 325ti. The Compact already existed at the E36 predecessor series. While he had an identical Front there, the new Compact came with its own Face with small round Headlights as well as five Inches more Length and Width. But that didn’t change the fact that, after a predominantly optical Model maintenance, he was hired just a Year later due to a lack of Success. In addition to the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sportcoupé, the Competitors were Audi A3, Alfa Romeo 147 and VW Golf.
