If the US were to get all the models (323, 325, 330, 335, etc) this would put pricing at approximately $33,700 for 325, and $40,100.00 for 335. Fortunately, we are not getting all these models, and there is no way the models will be split by $6,500.00 for just an engine/suspension upgrade (remember the 330 used to add leather, among other premium upgrades). With the 328 they can now charge slightly more than the 325 UK. Likewise, without the 330 they would have to charge slightly less than the 330 UK.

Without further babbling:

US predictons:
328 Coupe: $34,000.00
335 Coupe: $38,500.00

WOW those are low...I hope you're totally right. That would make me a VERY happy man.

The reasoning behind my guess ($39.6k) is that the 330 sedan is $36.6 and the coupes are usually $1k more, which would be $37.6k. The new turbo engine makes me think there will be a little bit of a premium added, of which I think $2k is reasonable. Anything more than that is really stretching it. So that's how I'm at $39.6k.

But I hope you're right!

guys, let me get something straight. A bi-turbo engine (335i) revs to 7000+RPM? is that possible?

i only thought the porsche turbo could do that and after heavy modding

Don't get me wrong, I think the E92 is beautiful. But I wonder about some of the design choices they made. It still irritates me the way the door gaps and rocker panels are not even in the same zip code... that'll bug me everytime I see one. I'm still undecided about the change in the headlights.. I like the way ours come down to the full point in the front. Also notice that they have removed the subtle scowl in the "mouth" of the front bumper - another of my favorite design compents..

But I do like the new grill presentation and the hood. The tail lights seem to depend on the color of the car - on the new gray they look great, but in that new blue color... not so much.

yea, i find the e90's to look sportier. the e92 looks like a solara or something. there is like 4 more inches in length compared to the e46, but only 1 more inch in wheelbase.

How do they do it? The current coupe looks fabulous, but seeing it side by side with the new one it just looks ancient!

The new one looks awesome cannot wait to order one!

Remember that's what ppl were saying about the E90's lights at first? I think it's grown on ppl by now and I think the E92's lights will do the same (even tho I love the design personally).

I like both e90 and e92's tail design also. I'm glad they went with a slightly different tail lights setup on the e92. This new design fits the coupe's shape. I think the e90's design would not be as appropriate on the sleeker coupe shape. Just my opinion
