    Wouldn't it be E46 like the rest of the 3-series? Or is it a separate chassis?

    I'm pretty sure its a seperate chassis. It was made inbetween the e36 and e46 (96-01), and e36 was 92-97, e46 is 98-on.

    That's my reasoning anyway. Someone correct me if i'm way off. :o

    :nuts: Really? That's odd. :o

    Are most (except for the roof section of course) of the body panels the same on both?

    No, none of the body panels are simlilar.

    The car is really a parts-bin car. E36 front suspension, E30 rear suspension.

    It is just the name they chose...
