i completely disagree...most of the new style BMW's have a "growing effect". You will see the E90 M3 will make a ton. I guarantee it is going to be one hell of a car to drive. You will see sales will still be quite good.

My Ride: BMW
biased motherf*ckers
you and ur e46s

the e92 m3 is gonna BLOWWWWWWWWWW your m3's out of the water in every aspect
performance, looks, handling..... etc

sorry to say it, but face it
its a new (different) look that you WILL get used to and love, just like we all did with the e46


keep in mind, i'm in the same boat as an e46 owner
but bmw knows what they are doing
you will love this car the second you see one in person, and that first second you sit in that drivers seat


(no i am not speaking for all of you, but i will def say majority of you)

is anyone looking at gas prices by chance?

lets do this like a master card commercial...

Gallon of Gas : 3.50

How often your going to be on the gas in an e90: all the time

how screwed your going to feel feel when your busting out tons of cash just on gas and a damn prius drives by you only having to fill up twice a month

PRICELESS

in my s4 which was a v8 I was able to kill 4 gallons of gas in about 7 minutes driving my hardest on street.....

ps. e46 looks better...

I don't dont like the look for the car. Also, most of the new BMW does not have the growing effect on me. THey are just plain and ugly.

I don't think my next car is going to be a Beemer.

Wow thats a great page, IMO in the pics the E46 looks better overall. But the 335i coupe in real life is soooo sex looking. Maybe I say that cause I see my beautiful Mystic Blue M3 everyday. In the pics the front and the rear of the E90 look better. But the angles and the e90 looks terrible compared to the M3. And people do have a point by saying, the E46 M3 was the last true BMW styled car. But if you think about wouldn't the Bubbly new generation BMWs be the new BMW style? Get it?

After choosing colors and seeing the video of the new m3 on the bmw international page it has just completely swayed my opinion. Its beautiful, everyone needs to check it out.

It will take some time for the e90 style to grow on me. Still a great car, it took some time for the new 3 series coupe to grow on me as well

i hate to say it but its most certainly going to happen
