Any idea when these are supposed to come out? If I get an 04 I may want to deal them down if the redesigned 05's will come out in a few months.

I agree, im not a fan of the interior of the 5er.


Hey gav, i thought the e90 is suppose to be a 2006 model.

Would be bad ass if it is a 2005 model, then it will come out soon!

The next 3er should be coming out to the USA in 2005 as a 2006 model. This trend is not followed in Europe. The model year is the year a car appears there (with rare exceptions). Some of this info comes from Europe, hence the confusion sometimes.

It's hot ass hell from the front... I don't like the X3 esq rear lights, though. Atleast it doesn't look like anything else on the street though, which is good.

There's just something I don't like about the trunk though....it looks like it was rear-ended by a high SUV right over the bumper. But I have complaints about all BMW's new rears, hopefully the production version looks better in person.

The 4-Series looks like itís gonna be HOT.
Since the 6 is out of my price range, I may be looking at the 4 for my CL-S replacement in a few years.

That is if Acura drops the ball on a TL or RL Coupe. Or if it comes out in SlushBox only.

Ookay. Looks like you agree with me on the funny rears... what's werd about me saying the front is hot. The long hood, side stance, aggressive fenders, and new lights all looks good to me.

After seeing their recent cars, I think the interior matters most, cause they no longer look like class leading luxury.

I talked to the dealer rep I was gonna buy an 04 330Ci from and he said they'll probably come out in 05 as 06 models
The current gen looks so much nicer inside and out. The new interiors don't look too horrible with the navi screen though.

Do they have an estimate of what month they might release the new model style next year? What has been the trend?

Tell you the truth that interior looks pretty damn bland from those pictures. Hope it looks a little nicer in person.

If someone just showed me those interior pictures i would have thought honda/subaru maybe not a luxury brand.

I was reading in Automobile mag today (while at the airport) that BMW has abondoned plans about the "even numbers going to coupes and odd numbers going to sedans" strategy. But the mag was not clear if that's going to apply to all BMW models on just be related to the M3.

They clearly stated though that the next M3 will be called the M3 (and of course have 2 doors). The reason is due to mainly the fact that the denotation M3 is way too popular to screw with.

Whatever the outcome, this means more confusion for customers, after the numbered denotation shenanigans.

The article was also confirming the use of a 4.0 liter V8 making 400HP and a 4.4 liter V8 making 440HP for the CSL version.
