cant say i love it, from the profile looks like the bentley coupe, from the front looks ugly i much rather see the old 2004-2005 style at least on the 330ci

Saw the new CLK55 AMG yesterday and I liked it very much. The new M3 will be a no brainer, but as far as regular coupe goes, right now I give the edge to the basic CLK.

So, if it's a folding, retractable roof... what happens to the "shark fin" on top of the roof? :dunno:

Another new pic of 3 seires coupe. Notice the rear view side mirrors. The front grill looks more like 5 series. :confused:
*****
The photo is showing the new model in full showroom trim. Power for the CC comes from a variety of six-cylinder engines ranging from 2.2 litre 180 HP to 3.0 litre 258 HP. 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

I don't care for the looks, but more importantly, do we get the diesel engines? If the 3 gets it, I'm sure the rest of the lineup will too.

May be I am too old to accept the change but I really have a tough time developing a taste for the new 3 series line, and this new coupe is not going to help.

Any news on which engine? Waiting to hear when the N53 with DI replaces the N52. Supposedly good for an additional 8% fuel efficiency over the N52 3.0, with the same hp, and should be out in mid 2006.

I just got an '06 325i for a loaner for 2 days and let me tell you.......it drove nice, but I felt like I was in a Honda or a Japanese car. It didn't even have that "BMW" smell. It smelled like a brand new Japanese car.......you know how BMW's have that smell.......the leather & all.....it's just different. It just didn't feel like a BMW to me...........it seemed cheaper & I was not impressed by the materials.......It drove very nice, especially in Sport mode, but overall - not impressed for a $36,000 car...........The new coupe looks Japanese designed too..........

I have read that the new N53 DI engine will debut in the upcoming E92 coupe in the form of a 3.5L 335i.
