The 3 Series is 40 years old

Presented for the first time at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1975, the first 3 Series was a boxy two-door sedan that featured characteristic round headlights. First commercialized with carbureted four-cylinder engines, the car quickly became the first ever in its class to offer a straight-six mill. Innovation at its best. Since then, six different generations of the hot-selling compact were built, and a new one is up and coming for next year.
