The E90 sedan looks SO much better. Those rear lights remind me of the Accord. No more clears, now red back in style? And the front isn't aggressive, blah.

Those are photoshopped.

And the official release of the E92 will not come as soon as expected, could be a month or more at the moment. Cause apparently there is still a demand for the e46 coupe.

I won't call any shots until i see the official material from bmw.

A well designed automobile doesnít need to grow on you. It is supposed to be appealing on the first glance. The e90 / 92 arenít ugly cars at all, yet not as appealing as the e46 when it first was introduced.

couldnt had said better myself, why do I need to grow into anything...car looks like trendy garbage influenced by the wrong ****...SUCKS... only good design they have done is the 645 and m6.. E90 sedan looksbetter because at least its proportioned right but its still an aquired taste, something BMW has never had in the past....their just all sick and no matter how old they get you can still appreciate them...

E92 is a heap of cutting corners and sacrificing design asthetics over price concerns, shame on you BMW....they shouldve used a new platform for the coupe, ill say it over and over again, that technique worked perfectly on the E46 and they banked hard but it sure doent look right on the e92...its gonna sell anyways, but im sure true fanatics that can relate wont even bother... M3 will be plauged with the same issues unless they widebody the living crap out of it

When I first saw an E46 I got wood. It had an aggressive stance and the grill made it looked pissed off. I loved it. This new one is bland. It looks like the new Accord and Civic I saw at a light the other day. The look should be shocking, something you don't want to stop looking at. Not something that you have to wait until its up close to discern the brand.

I'd never buy one but I think the G35 is a much better looking car than the new 3.

i dont remember seeing e46 spy shots/early ps's or masked pix but im sure it was the same-

ive seen some pix that i love and some that had me like - im waiting patiently for the official pix and launch info before i make a judgement...i mean the most we have seen are stripped down and masked up test models...no sports packages, no finalized tweaks nothing-

im even starting to like the e90 and i hate sedans so im almost sure i'll be ordering the e92- ugly or not im hoping it releases this summer...thats when im planning on buying and the e92 is at the top of my list-

does anybody have early pix or masked test shots of the e90?
