    Model : 3 Series

    BMW’s E90 3-series was the first to come to India in April 2007. You could initially buy either a 320i or a 320d, and the six-cylinder 325i came a bit later. The suspension systems on these early 3-series cars were sporty but rock hard. In 2008, BMW gave the 3-series a mild facelift and made the suspension more comfortable. The year 2010 saw the 254bhp 330i replace the 325i and BMW got the ride and handling balance right for the first time. Later on, green Efficient Dynamics editions saw the addition of electric power steering.

    The 3-series is the bedrock on which BMW is founded. The 3-series also sets the philosophical standard of BMW’s core brand values. Understand what makes the 3-series tick and you’ll understand what makes every BMW so alluring. But can this new F30 take the game further in this era of greater efficiency and increasingly digital connectivity?

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!

    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.

    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
