i was told last week that BMW will make the debut of the new 3-series in Geneva Auto Show in March, and at the moment, we'll start to see cars rolling on street on May.

given my M5 experience, i highly doubt they'll have the car ready for delivery as early as next May though. i think Sept/Oct-ish is more resonable.

- dual xenon standard
- comfort key (can sense you're in the car and u just push the button)
- active steering
- engine has a lot of weight saving parts used
- iDrive
- increased hp
- tons more i can't remember, but i'm pumped....

The back doesn't look awesome but I'd still buy one when it's time to change cars!

Front and sides look nice (although I am not a fan of the sharp staright lines on the side). The rear is just awful, just the the 5 and 7 series. Where is BMW going with their company????

Ever notice how BMW has lost it's awsome designs and Mercedes have got it right on with their designs? BMW used to be in that position Mercedes is in now, but they have lost it in my opinion anyway.

Does the new 3 use the I-drive system?
