Three generations of the 3-Series have been built in China by BMW Brilliance. On October 16, 2003, the first locally-made BMW, a 325i of the fourth-gen (E46), hit the market; it was joined by the 318i on April 17, 2004. The fifth-gen (E90), 320i and 325i in particular, launched on September 10, were sold alongside the imported 330i. In 2009, the lineup was expanded to include the China-made 318i.

At the 2012 Beijing motor show BMW Brilliance unwrapped the long-wheelbase version of the six-gen 3-Series (F30), on which the distance between front and back axles was increased by 110mm to 2920mm. The 320Li, 328Li, and 335Li hit the market on July 13, 2012. In January 2013, models with the standard wheelbase started to roll off the production line. At the Tiexi plant in Shenyang, Jilin, the fifth-gen 3-Series has shared a platform with the X1 SUV.

In 2013, sales of the China-made 3-Series reached 60,975; by comparison, its two main rivals the Audi A4L from FAW-Volkswagen delivered 122,672 units, the C-Class from Beijing-Benz 37,895. 2014 sales of the 3 rose to 93,667.
