Already a cult choice among BMW aficionados, the E46-generation 3 Series Compact was a much-needed improvement on its predecessor, and in 189bhp 2.5-litre straight-six 325ti form, it’s a real hoot to drive.

The Compact led the way for future BMW hot hatches like the M135i. Relatively low-mileage examples are on the market from as little as £2,000.
