    Nice! But is it just me, or in the black interior pic, the center consol not line up with the shifter consol? know what i mean? maybe its just the way the pic is..

    The only thing I don't like is the flat dash. The old driver oriented cockpits were much better imo. But other than that its kick ass, can't wait to see some pics of the 4 series.

    The E36's dash layout IMO was the nicest the 3 series interior wise, by far!

    I-Drive = the sex! Friend of my parents have a new 5 series with it and after playing with it for about 10 minutes, it's super easy to use.

    Yeah basically if you were born before 1965, then Idrive is too much for your feeble mind to comprehend. Everyone else is home free to enjoy its benefits. :lol:

    The magazine writers are starting to come around. Partially because they are getting used to new technology finally, and partially because they now realize that they have no fucking choice since Mercedes-Benz and Audi are both developing multimedia interfaces similar to I-Drive. Of coruse they will say things like "Audi's version was much better sorted out when it debuted..." but, they won't mention "It was 4 fucking years after BMW took the plunge to try and declutter everyone's dashboards..."

    The number originally was an internal thing denoting developemnet order. Thats why there are gaps between numbers, they are the versions that never made it to production. Whats funny is that the new 5(er for Pat) was developed before the new 7(er).


    BMW "E" Chassis Codes

    E Chassis Code Production Model

    E3 68-77 2500-3.3Li Sedan
    E9 65-75 2500-3.0 CS/i/L Coupes
    E12 72-81 5 Series
    E21 75-83 3 Series
    E23 77-87 7 Series
    E24 77-89 6 Series
    E26 78-81 M1
    E28 82-88 5 Series
    E30 84-91 3 Series
    E31 90-98 8 Series
    E32 87-94 7 Series
    E34 89-96 5 Series
    E36 92-98 3 Series
    E36/5 94-98 318ti (Compact)
    E36/7 97-02 Z3
    E38 95-02 7 Series
    E39 97-04 5 Series
    E46 99- 3 series
    E52 00-04 Z8
    E53 00- X5
    E60 05- 5 Series
    E63 05- 6 Series
    E65/E66 03- 7 Series


    They don't have the new Z4 on here which I believe is an E83, and also the new E90 3 series. I don't know what the designation is going to be on the new 4 series.

    That's how our 330i Performance Package cars come. I would get exactly the same, add sunroof, but in a 4 door.
