2008 COTY : Best e46 Non-M Coupe

I bring you one of the several Car of the Year threads for 2008. The mod lists and pictures for each nominee was supplied by each nominee. If a nominee doesnt have a picture or mod list it is because they did not supply it. I wanted to make this as fair for everyone as possible, so I put it into their hands. The pictures are the ones that they chose. Each nominee was asked over a month ago to supply these things.

I ask of you to vote for the best car in the category based on the work done in 2008 and the overall work done to the car. Once the votes have been gathered, honorary awards will be given to the top three (Gold, silver, bronze if you will). The overall winner from each category will then go up against each other to find out who has the true Car of the Year.

I would like to congratulate all of the nominees as well as everyone that participated. I am really looking forward to 2009.
