e46 (Coupe) production ends in May 06
e92 hit's NA in September.
335ci with 300bhp is an option.

"...76th Geneva Auto Show... BMW will unveiled the Z4 Coupe and its high-performance M Coupe variant, along with a new turbocharged engine which will show up in a 3 Series in the not-too-distant future..."

Guess we'll all find out tomorrow.

Z4 coupe M looks good. But that wing, OMG!!!, it's awful. Maybe a tad overdone?!?

You do realize that's a racing version? All of those cars have those big adjustable aerodynamics.

those aerodynamics ensure enough downforce and prevent what we call in the car business "take off"

pic 0783 tells you how that headlight shape is gonna look like. you can see regardless of the tape...

unless this car on the street still isn't the 'production' model.

i still like the hood of the e90 how it overlaps the top edge of the headlight to give it a wave affect and a bit of flow.

this e92 is too straight. but i'm glad the e92 hood doesn't have 'eyebrows' for the kidneys.

actually if the kidneys would be PART a of the hood that'd be best for me.

Guess you've never seen Mark Webber taking off in the CLK-GTR at Le Mans.

Ok that was frontend aerodynamic, but you get the idea. BMW doesn't win the Nurburgring 24hr 2 years in a row by over-doing their cars.

I doubt there'd be a jail sentence. Get like a little kid to do it, then snap the picture.

Man I hope the coupe doesn't look like the golden pic. If it does I hope that the parts are similar enough that I can bolt on the sedan's headlights, hood, front bumper and kidneys. They look way cooler then the coupe.

I am hopin that the blue car front bumper is still a cover instead of the actual bumper. It looks to plain compared to the e90 seden.

Oh well just MHO. Guess a sedan is nice. Cheaper too.

Hmm... if you want to replace the entire front end of the car, the hood, both fenders, bumper cover and both headlights, I think you should be able to make it look exactly like a sedan since the stuff under the skin is the same...... it would be a lot of money though...... mayhapse, if you find someone who has a sedan and want a coupe front end look, it may work out..

I would suggest waiting for the actual (official) picture of the coupe though... from what I can imagine, the coupe should look great as well... also, remember that spy pic of the M3 sedan being tested? they seem to have revised the front end look of sedans.... there's not enough information to conclude the sedans will look like coupes, (actually it wont... BMW always makes their sedans and coupes have a different look) but it wont have the same look as the current sedan.

the only thing im worried about is the lights banking upwards into the kidney grilles like all the pictures have been showing... im not really a fan of that, it makes it look like the artist reps of the new Evo X... IMO, BMW shouldnt be about luxury, it should be about solid race inspired cars.... with the pompus frou frou stuff added in later..lol
