in person, I like the classic styling of the E46, but in these pictures, the e92 looks A LOT BETTER imho.

I think I've worked out why the E92 styling doesn't.

The boot area is too low and that is probably due to backing off on the Bangle boot. This makes it look like a reverse chine yacht. Ironically it needs something to make the car more of a wedge shape otherwise it looks like a MX6

Thanks for the pics - what strikes me most is that they are actually VERY VERY similar.

Much closer than you would think when you look at the photo's separately.

I actually like the E46 coupes headlights better. I think they just have a more defined shape than the E92.

The rest of the deisign, I do like the E92 better... As always, LED tails would be cool too...

Confirmed it is the swage line. You can see it just by comparing the E46 to the E92. The deck height of the trunk is too low on the E92 (compare E46). The E90 doesn't have this problem because it has the bangle boot which raises the deck height

the E46 is a classic to be sure.

Having said that though, there is no escaping that we're in a new era from a BMW design standpoint, and while I think they got close with the E90, I think they managed to (finally) get it just so with the E92.
I like the car quite a bit, esp the head on view. First bimmer imo to truly have the classic 'all business' bimmer front end.

They're both beautiful cars,but I think the E92 looks sportier and I really like the lowered roof line on the E92.

Careful not to cheat - the e46 pics are for the m-sport which has 'm' rear bumper, front air dam, side sills and wheels, as well as a black high gloss shadowline and anthracite headliner. The e92 pics are just the SE which is never going to look as agressive.

The e92 m-sport is going to be a lot more punchy.

ZHP is absolutely gorgeous. BMW needs to come up with a similar package for e92.
