Didn't already find this on the list. Think it could be useful.

Hello everyone, I am new to the forum and a soon to be BMW 335is owner. There are a few acronyms I have seen on this forum that I did not see on this thread. Also, can someone explain the difference between an E90-91-92-93 3 series?

And what does LCI stand for? Thanks. Trying to learn about the car before I purchase it.

BMW E90 - 3 Series Sedan (4 Doors)
BMW E91 - 3 Series Wagon Sedan (5 Doors)
BMW E92 - 3 Series Coupe (2 Doors)
BMW E93 - 3 Series Convertible Coupe (2 Doors)

LCI - Life Cycle Impulse; Every few years, the car manufactures update the interior/exterior of the car. (E.g. the 2006-2008 3 series are Pre-LCI and the 2009-2011 3 Series are LCI. The LCI models have new lines added to the hood, updated I-Drive, new rims, new interior/exterior colors, LED tail lights and head lights, upgraded front bumper, etc...)
