E46 looks timeless. The other body styles north of e46 don't represent classic BMW styling to me. They're modern era designs, that do look nice, but nothing looks as modern / classic at the same time as the e46.

I think the F30 has a more lassic look up front than the e90. It fits the e30 - e36 - e46 progression. I've never been a fan of the e90 though so whatever.

The back of the f30 is horrendous though. I really hope that gets face-lifted.

I am going to guess they are barcode stickers for some type of special gate entry.

Well I think it's a nice layout of how BMW 3 series has Evolved, but is it me- the white boxes did not evolve at all . They all look the same...lol

If I would have known, I would have removed it from your sig when I made it for you. lol. I agree generally it's silly to edit it out, but when you talk about your car in a public forum and develop "haters" in the mean time, it never hurts to give someone one less method to identify your car and possibly you. For your average poster nobody would give a second glance, leave the plates on.

Nice bunch, flash. Whatever you do, don't rack the F30.. and if you do, take it off when not in use

There a lot of haters out there and I don't want them to stalk my limoncello. These haters are mainly the California members.
