    They really need to re-simplify their badging and nameplates.

    35/7 series = 4dr
    2/4 series = 2dr

    323 means a 2.3L, none of this 2.5l shit or vise versa.... Is that so hard? :dunno:


    PS. :idhitit:

    "The initial idea considered was a 4 door M3 saloon and a 2 door M4 coupe. But recently BMW has changed their minds and keep the legendary M3 coupe alive. Internal pressure from the BMW board was too great to kill it off. Therefore, the M3 coupe, M3 saloon and an M3 cabriolet in addition to an M4 2 door cabriolet will be developed. Did you get all that?" :dunno: Your guess is as good as mine :dunno:

    Totally different body. Sleeker, and i think it may be a bit bigger.

    3 Series = 4 door
    4 Series = 2 door

    5 Series = 4 door
    6 Series = 2 door

    7 Series = 4 door

    Evens are coupes, odds are sedans.

    i remember that they said they will keep the m3 coupes as m3 and not m4
    i guess the m4 is just going to be convertibles.

    It is the E90 with M5 bodykit grafted on along with E46 M3 bonnet bulge. However I cannot see the real version being hugely different.

    Not feeling it, I'd be taking the RS4....with that steering wheel...:big grin:

    Built prior to these standards going into effect. That's just a new planning scheme BMW is instating.

    I agree but I got them off of GermanCarFans.com and they are pretty damn accurrate with their predictions. chances are the real thing is going to be very, very similar. As for ugly....it's all relative.

    I also prefer the E46 to that.

    But people loved BMW's previous E36 the same way they do now with the new E90
    So this might be interesting.

    It looks pretty damned sexy, but they need to re-design the tailights asap. Hopefully the interior will be more.. satisfying than it is on the base E90.

    Liking fake tits or not is relative. Those pics you posted however, were fugly (for lack of a more original, witty term... I figure the car deserves similar). Not to shit on you though - thanks for the heads up, it's just that shit has hit the roof in the BMW camp. At least with respect to the aesthetics.

    That you don't own one. :mamoru:


    I still go back to the fact of how impressed I was when I watched the new 3-series movies on BMW's website. Just watching the car in motion convinced me it was damned near perfect. Plus, IMO, the 3-series is one of the best Bangle'd BMW's. It's not hawt, but it does look good(clean) and hey, it's BMW. I never thought I'd say that "it's BMW." :noes:

    that is the OLD planning scheme that they got away from for quite a while and are now going back to.


    oh, and all you guys left out the 8 series :cool: 850Ci bitches
