I'm having some trouble tracking down proper stats on the E9x series. I'll be in the market for CPO E9x shortly and of course you can't trust the sales guys. I figure one of you out there must know this stuff off the top of head. I may end up in either a sedan or coupe. I'm looking for a quick list like:

2006
323 sedan 2.5l 170hp, 180ftlb
325 sedan 3.0l 200hp, 190ftlb
325 coupe (E46) body still...

2007

etc...etc...

Thanks, I should have mentioned I already looked at Wiki and its wrong. Wiki facts are only as good as whoever wrote them.

For example according to Wiki:
- There was no E90 323 in Canada until 2007 which wrong. The sedan came out in 06, the coupe was still on the E46 platform.
- There has never been a 325 in Canada ever on the E9x platform. Again wrong.

I actually have all the Auto Show books back to 1999 (what a loser...ha ha), so am going to go through them. If I actually type a list I'll post it as it may be useful for someone else.

How do you like it?? A CPO 2006 325 is a prime candidate for my daily driver (180kms/day)

I'm probably not the best person to ask.. I've only had mine for just over a month. So far though, I can say that I havent had any issues :) I'm getting 10.1 L/100.. and it's fun to drive. I don't think you'd regret it; I haven't.

Btw, what's CPO stand for? I've seen that a few times lately.

CPO = certified pre-owned

The BMW E90 automobile platform is the fifth generation of the BMW 3 Series range of compact executive cars. A high performance BMW M3 version of the E90, E92, and E93 is also available. The sedan (saloon) model of the 3 series was the first model sold of the 5th generation BMW 3 series. Debuting in 2006, the E90 came in two trims in the US, the 325i/x and 330i/x models. Later, the US E90 received an engine boost with the debuts of the 2007 328i/x and 335i/x models.
