Thank you, eneka! You just proved my point. Seeing them side by side, I'm definitely persuaded that there is a great deal of E46 influence in the design of the new 2 series. The front facia of the...

M235i Bears Striking Resemblace to FL E46 coupe

Has anyone else noticed how closely the new 2-series, especially the M235i model, resembles the facelifted E46 coupe? The headlight covers have that same kind of pointed wrap around design that the...

I really think the E46 coupe is a classic design and there are obviously reasons why low mileage examples are still commanding such a premium. If the market will bear prices in the high teens and low...

Wide Price Range of E46 Coupes

I was on Autotrader today just browsing the listings hoping I might spy the car that gets me back into the ranks of E46 ownership. While browsing my only search parameters were 2004-2006 coupes. As...

It looks like there are classes all over the country so you shouldn't be limited by geography. I was looking into Ding King a couple months back but they don't tell you how much the classes cost....

I think the 328Ci is a great car. In fact, it has more torque than the E92 328i does. The 330Ci is obviously superior (or else why would BMW have upgraded in the first place) but used car purchases...

Sagging bumper covers on PFL cars

Maybe it's just my perception, but it seems like every pre-facelift E46 coupe I see has a sagging lower front bumper cover that causes several milimeters of gap to occur around the corners where the...

my 325Ci had the sports package and that is simply a must have for the E46. I won't buy an E46 without the sports package. IMO, those are the best seats in automotive history!

Well I have an E92 now and I love it, but I just miss that sturdy, solid feel that my 325Ci had. Someone mentioned how the 328Ci has the least power assisted steering and that is really what I'm...

How does 328Ci drive compared to 325/330Ci?

As I look for my opportunity to return to E46 ownership, I've been seriously considering the 328Ci. From the research I've done it seems that this was the last model year to feature a throttle cable...

I'm sorry but the words college student and BMW should never be in the same sentence as one another.

I had this same problem in my E46, but it only happened when I took it past 5500 RPMS in first. I never did get it fixed since I seldom ever needed to get that high in first gear. Plus, I noticed...

328 is a legend going back all the way to the original designed by Peter Syzmanowski. Go with the one that's a descendant of the legend.

This is why when I moved up to the E92, I went for a naturally aspirated 328i and not the twin-turbo. I've never liked turbo-powered engines. Turbo engines are inherently prone to pre-mature failure,...
