The new 3-series is a technological marvel. The styling may be a little questionable, but the car is supurb. Underneath the new sheet metal is a whole new driving dimension that enables the E90 to surpass the e46. The new inline six rev's smoothly-as any BMW should. The six speed manual seems to be a little faster, and that shows in the faster 0-60 times. The new 3.0 liter six helps out as well, with 255 horses.
The new brake assist program is innovative. It senses rain and will periodically whipe water off the brake rotors.
I want Chris Bangle to keep the old 3 style and just make the engine and chassis improvements.
