Wow, the F series looks fat compared to the E90.

The F30 has that aggressive front end, and those tiny sunk wheels. It's screaming for some rims.

Albeit the E46 has some dated aspects, I still prefer it's looks out of all 3 of those cars.

OP, sure it's an F30 but wipe the bugs off! Digging the E90 due to the M-sport like others have said. And why no E30? Need a good comparison to see how bloated the 3 series actually is now

For god's sake - stop buying cars and hire a landscaper.

Yeah I saw the cars but then my eyes gravitated immediately towards that hideous lawn. You should've blocked that out instead of the license plates.

Just in case you guys didn't notice, there's been a relative lack of rain through much of the US this summer. Lawns at my apartment complex look like ass.

WOW the E46 looks so old in this pic. How does the F30 compare to the E90?

the interior seems like a downgrade. the dashboard and steering wheel is hard plastic. the performance is especially amazing considering it (328i) has only a 4 cylinder engine. The instant torque makes it very fun to drive. the technology is much better (better Idrive, digital user manual, screen, setting, etc)

+1 the next e46 I buy will be the last. I can't even stand what I'm hearing from enthusiasts with the new models when it comes to some of the maintenance/mechanical items.

The E90 does look the best in these pics, mostly because of the M-sport like everyone said. However, I saw an F30 in Alpine white a couple days ago and everything about it looks better than the E90 except for the front bumper. The F30 front bumper is atrocious, it needs the M-sport so bad.

The E90s looks are really growing on me. Especially the coupes.
They look like they are moving when standing still
