that's just my opinion. i do like the e90 and the 1 series, but i feel that the e46 is just a better design than both of them combined. especially the headlights which were straight and "mean" looking in the e46 compared to the slanted headlight look of the e90 and 1 series.
hopefully this slanted Toyota headlight trend will end soon and mean lookin bimmers will make a comeback. unfortunately BMW is selling more than ever so it just means more people like this trend. but whatever, the glory days are over. used market still exists.
That's funny cuz I see it totally opposite. The E46 looks wayyyy softer IMO and the whole front of the E90 just looks a little mad to me.
Its the back and the side of the E90 I have the biggest issues with. Where the E46 is more streamlined, and both classier and sportier in back, the E90 just looks.... for the sake of not getting flamed let's just say I don't like it as much as the E90.
