BMW F30 Buyers Guide

Whether you're just starting the research phase of buying a 3-series BMW F30, or if you've recently bought one, this Buyer's Guide covers everything you need to know about one of the most popular BMW platforms.

The F30 is the sixth generation 3-series produced from 2012-2018 and was available as a sedan, wagon, or lift-back GT model. The 3-series coupe, convertible, and Gran Coupe all became the 4-series but shared most of the F30 powertrains and options. The F30 was available in the U.S. with 4 and 6-cylinder gasoline engines and 4-cylinder diesel engines in both AWD and RWD. As for transmissions, the F30 used either a ZF 8-speed auto or 6-speed manual. The F30 was updated in 2016 with new models, engines, options, interior/exterior trims, and more. Since the M3 was so vastly different from the non-M model, it got the internal code F80 and featured a twin-turbocharged straight-six mated to either a 7-speed DCT or 6-speed manual.
