I think it looks incredible. The only thing I want to know now is whether the 335 will be a third model or whether they are replacing the 330 with the 335 and will up the entry model to a 328. I mean I've heard people say definitely both ways, and that article seemed to think it would be a new model. Guess we'll have to wait till the summer.

Not in stock form, but the F/I potential will work in its favor.

The 335i is a good spot between the 250 hp 330i and the upcoming 400hp M3.

But BMW is making the whole alphanumeric soup even crazier. The 325, 330, and 335 all have 3.0L engines!

Expect to see the 325 Dropped after the 335 comes out.

THey already dropped the 2.5L Z4.

Or are Japanese companies making their cars look more European? I think that's more likely as European cars are seen as the pinnacle of class and performance. Remember that immitation is the best form of flattery.

The M3 will look absolutely evil! I'm looking at the 335i pics above and visualizing wider fenders and a deeper grill!! Photoshop anyone??

As far as I can tell, it is Japanese companies making the shift, not European companies.

it must be just me thinking that twin turbo and 302 hp is on the very very weak side...

agreed with the comment on e46 becoming classics...
