I'm very happy they decided not to put the ugly 5er, 6er and 7er type trunk on the 3er. Something about the headlights stills throws me off. Overall I think it's the best looking of the new Bimmer bunch.

If they make a turbo coupe then I'm all in:
I still have my PG3s and my Polk Audio sponsorship. Muahahaha!!!

On that pic...does anyone see the round dot thing under the M of the license plate...it's in the bumper. Perhaps that's a form of distronic? Radar based cruise control

My Ride: E92 M3
i dont this this e90 m3 posted inthis thread will be real.


compare the headlights with
E90



they arent even close to be the same. I remember people asking why this E90 m3 is fake, well from the history of ///M, they only change the bumper, which does not include the headlight. If BMW changes the design of the headlight, then fender, hood..etc whatever else have to be changed. The cost would be ridiculous.

Well the reason being different headlights is one is a sedan vs. the coupe. Compare the E46 M3 to the 2000 328i. You'll see why this could resemble how the new M3 will look like. The headlights are pretty simialar, just like they did with the E46 M3.

True , TL brothe .... especially the distance between the rear badge and the 330i is a bit too close, looks weird. BMW is definately going down !

I kinda like the M3's headlight better...

The wheels on the E90 sedan look ugly though.

I dont know whether that picture is real (I do like it better than the sedan though), but do remember that the E90 coupe/convertible were originally going to be called the 4-series and that they are mean to be even more differentiated from the sedan/touring variants than any 3-series before...

Hence the photo could be correct...

Most likely. It definitely going to be an option as it allready is in the 5-series. And a very nice option that is. Itīs been listed as such in the Easter-European E90 catalogue thatīs been floating around.

I think it look likes s1it. I think the 330 should of at least had 280hp. Im so dissapointed with bmw. I loved bmw's when i first saw the e36 m3 but ever since bangle has become a designer, the designs have sucked. Just take a look at the new 7 and 5. What can i say about the 3? Oh it doesnt look as fawked up as the others so its the nicest. Bmw has lost a customer
. Audi S4 here i come.
