New 3 series coupe and convertible spy shots

On the rear shot of the coupe the two exhaust pipes are showing that this car is equipped with BMWs new turbo charged straight six fuel engine delivering 300 HP.
While the Coupe is for launch in July this year, the convertible variant is only due a year later in 2007.
The top of the line M3 will get a V8 4.0 litre engine delivering around 400 HP. Furthermore three Diesels will be available performing 163 HP to 272 HP.

The front end of this car is "OK" but the rear is a let-down.

It looks like an American family car design actually. Those tailights are my main problem.

I see they tried to give the front more of a snarl look by using E46-sedan kidneys and "squinted" headlights, but it too looks unnatural compared to the fine proportion found on the E90 sedan.

Overall, I really like it. I can live without the taillights (too much red) and those rims (too many spokes).

Thanks for sharing the pics. I think it's okay. It doesn't turn my crank, at least in this guise. As Wagner said, the M treatment should serve it well. The rear end is the weakest, I think. The lights have a sort of Jetta/Corolla kind of feel. The rear window and C-pillar look like they blend to softly into the rear deck. I don't know. It's just sort of "blah" overall. I'll definitely reserve final judgement until I see it in the steel but for now, I'm not too excited abou it.
