    New 3 series coupe

    Anyone seen this car in the flesh yet??? Was behind one yesterday and have to say I was very dissapointed with the way it looks, very very boring...

    My girlfriend was with me and she agreed that the car did not look special and she even thought it looked quite an old design...

    Real shame as the last shape was IMO a very good looking car..

    This doesnt make me feel good about the upcoming M3 which I have an order for... No amount of bulges and shiny wheels will make this car appeal....

    Shame

    Re: New 3 series coupe

    Same here, coupe looks very boring too much like the Mercedes CLK..

    Re: New 3 series coupe

    I have seen it, and think it is a very nice looking car, althought slightly boring/anonymous. It doesn't have a wow factor.

    To my eyes the M-pack Touring is cooler, especially the twin-pipe 335i:

    Already saw four. The back doesn't do it for me.

    Re: New 3 series coupe

    Agreed... was waiting for the 3 series coupe myself (already own a E46 330ci - but not for long). Having seen how dull and CLK-esque it looks i abandoned my plans and ordered a cayman instead, which i'm picking up this friday! Now that i've seen a few 335's in the flesh, i'm confident that i made the right decision!

    temm tomorrow we are taking delivery of a 320d sedan, with the M package and those 18 rims, same exterior colour....After 2months of waiting !!!

    I think it looks great in both types !!!

    The one I absolutely love is the new Z4M COUPE,

    Re: New 3 series coupe

    Saw a 335i in the showroom. Exterior looked great but interior, well the word bland springs to mind.

    Are there any good looking cars out there appart from Porsche (excluding that fugly 4wd)

    Have you seen this HSV

    Not a lot of finesse but GOES FAST!

    Re: New 3 series coupe

    I see everyday same 3 Coupe, it is black with nice rims, and car looks great - especially rear.

    But I dont like 3 sedan... rear looks like it is Hyundai.

    Re: New 3 series coupe

    I work at a BMW/Porsche/Audi/VW dealer and see them everyday. Back end is a little dull, but front end is beautiful. Can't wait for 535xi to come out next year though. I hope we get a Z4 turbo engine car also.

    Why would you want a 5 series all wheel drive in Hawaii?

    Re: New 3 series coupe

    I saw a 335d in the wild and I must say it looks good. Even better than in the showroom. Somewhat smaller.

    One very bad observation though: Its color was black and the day was sunny... and the firs thing that I noticed was not how good the car looked in black but how BAD the orange peal effect was on the paint job... I mean really bad.
    I hope that that is just a passing faultiness and that BMW will work on improving it in the following months, cause if this is the way black will is then its a sad day

    Saw it, drove it. Not bad, not as sporty as I expected but the engine is very powerful (bi-turbo fuel engine) and feels very "vivid".
    The new M3 Coupe will show up next year with a V8 and 415 HP. Unfortunately the car will be pretty heavy, performance will be at par or slightly worse with the 997 Carrera S. Not very impressive but definetely cheaper than a Carrera S.

    Re: New 3 series coupe

    Guys today we got delivered the 320d sedan M package with 18rims....It looks and drives phenomental, it is an outstanding car, perfect materials, perfect engine it goes like very smooth and without waanting to go fast you are cruising at 120kph...I love the looks inside and outside, it is just so fresh!!!!!...Absolutely better than any mercedes of its class, this car just has a sporty design, very m5'ish ....

    We got it delivered with 2km in the tach (consuming 37liters !!!! ), now it has about 100km and only consumes about 8 liters), this car is amazing !!!!

    some pics

    Re: New 3 series coupe

    ok ok its not a even a coupé !!, but those wondering for the sedan, you should know it is amazing, very stable, nice steering, great suspension, consumption, engine, style everything !

    Geez Alex,

    it looks as if you need a freshly-delivered car every month. Congratulations!

    Which one is it going to replace, if I may ask. Do you need someone to take care of the remaining vehicles...?

    Re: New 3 series coupe

    Congrats Alex

    I think the M-sport sedan looks better than the coupe, especially in Titanium silver with 18" wheels - good choice

    Except maybe for a Ti Silver coupe with the 19" 230 wheels

    Re: New 3 series coupe

    rear

    Re: New 3 series coupe

    I like this car. For me the most beautiful BMW since the Bangelized era. Much better looking than the sedan.
    I think the M3 will be a blast again.

    thanks temm it really is a nice car, today I saw it while parking mine next to it, it its very m5'ish .

    We first thought of the 330d but price was a bit high and we really wanted the M package with all the extras, so we decided to go for the 320d, as this will be a car used for my mother most of the time , I now mean most of the time

    surely V8 is more heavy than L6 and B6.so I guess the new E92 M3 will make 0-100km/h in 5 s or maybe 4.9 (just a little bit quicker than base 997 with 325hp).Not so fast.....Porsche rules
    997 MK2 will sensible faster
