    Why do you guys refer to your cars as E90 or something similar instead of their actual model numbers such as M3, M5, 3 series, 7 series, etc? Does it designate the year of the model?

    It's the generation of the car. Rather than saying "Gen1 M3", you say "E30".

    You think BMW people do it, Japanese cars guys do it even more. Honda, Nissan and Toyota drivers do it.

    Please refrain from mentioning Honda in the same sentence as BMW. Thanks!
