Whistle Interlogos Blue E46 M3 and E92 M3 side by side pics

These are NOT my pics. Saw them on the M3forum.net board and thought you guys would like to see the side-by-side pics. The E92 is definitely larger than the E46. You really don't see it until you see these side-by-side pics.

I got them from this thread: http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?t=200627

Okay disucss....

Hmmm, now why would I want to do that?

Anyhow, I still enjoy our Carbon Black/Cinnamon interior E46 M3 and I still think it has a classic look. However, the E92 M3 is more bigger, heavier, but it is more like a really fast luxo GT coupe. It is more like a junior M5 now. Nothing wrong with it. Besides, the same thing happened when the E46 M3 first came out and everyone still liked the E36 M3.

Anyhow, there are some aspect of the E53 X5 I like better, but the E70 X5 still looks better than most other SUVs out in the market!

You can post the link and these pics in M3post.

Anyhow, someday I will probably upgrade but most likely it will have to be a bigger M-car, maybe the next-gen M5? Or maybe I'll stick with the M3, but it will probably have to be the sedan version!

yeah I hear yah, don't get me wrong I totally love the e46, but not compared to the e92, its outdated to me.
I will be having the e90 m3. I got rid of me 335 sedan to get a 550 or a m5 had not decided, then I decided to wait to see the new m3 sedan. after driving the M3 severeal times last week, I no longer have a desire to own the M5..well... you know what I mean.... the M5 has a few perks, but unless you have someone tall that will be in the back seat all the time, 3 sedan is fine. my kids never complained about the 335.
I cant wait till my M3 E90 comes in.
did you drive it?
my guess is no, if you still have your e46 and don't have an e90/e92 M3 on order.

Looking at them side-side it's so clear that the E46 M3 will live on as one of BMW's greatest designs ever. E46 M3 ftmfw.

Actually, waiting to see if eventually BMW will put that darn twin-turbo V8 in the E70 X5....Sunil dashed my hopes when he stated that the BMW engineers was going to hold off at least for 1 year and only put the twin-turbo engines in the X6. Well, maybe that would be a good thing to get all the bugs out of the twin-turbo V8.....I guess the X5 xDrive 50i will be out by 2010 model year.

I figured I would wait till BMW gets all bugs out until getting another X5/M3. I have a '04 M3 and it has been trouble-free compared with the '01-'03 M3. No blown engines here and had the latest SMG pumps/relay, etc. The '04 M3 has been much more reliable than my '01 E53 X5 (again, early model year jitters, etc.)

However, the E90 M3 sedan looks interesting, but I just get over the interior dash design of the E90/E92 vs. the classic interior look in our E46. IMHO, BMW did a better job updating the E70 interior from the E53 vs. the E90/E92 from the E46s.

The current E90/E92 dash design is okay, just like the E36 interior design was okay.

BTW, 2008 M3 will be outdated when the 3-series facelift happens with 2009 model and 2009 gets some new features and changes.
