Looks like the small Jag.
316ti

That's the one I have :)

It came out in summer 2001 and it was the first to feature 4cyl Valvetronic engines.

No trunk of course, and some ugly front and rear lights keep the cost down. The headlights seem identical to the Rover/MG ones. Who would have though that a BMW would look like a Rover?

You may notice the front bumper, including the area up to the front of the wheels and the top of the headlights is soft plastic. The upper part comes from a single mold, while the lower is exactly the same as the MY2001 sedan. The curve in front of the bonnet always looks as a bad fit, but its is simple to manufacture. There is no rear armrest and some standard sedan features are extras. As a result the price in Greece is:
Compact 2.0 lt. € 29900
Sedan 2.0 lt. € 34400
Coupe 2.0 li. € 36700
Compact 2.5 lt. € 47900
Sedan 2.5 lt. € 52300
Coupe 2.5 lt. € 54900

Underneath it is a standard E46. Contrary to the previous Compact that had an E36 rear suspension and other "left over" parts, the mechanics of this model is the same as a MY2002 sedan, including the stiffer suspension.
tgd: i just came back from greece a week ago! well thira/naxos. do i miss the sun! gee, the prices look really high for the 3er there. are they similar in the rest of europe? uk?

Gee, how come nobody's mentioned that they'll be making AWD coupes in 2003? :D
Prices for Germany

Compact 2.0 lt. € 22500
Sedan 2.0 lt. € 25600
Coupe 2.0 lt. € 26900
Compact 2.5 lt. € 29200
Sedan 2.5 lt. € 31250
Coupe 2.5 lt. € 32800

The much higher prices in Greece are due to heavy tax on cars with over 2 lt. engines. Take into the account the much lower salaries in Greece and BMWs feel even more expensive.

It seems that the prices are cheaper in Greece than here in Malta.

How much is tax rate over there?

We pay a 65% registration for cars under 2000cc plus 15% VAT on total?

I think that's awesome!
