The E46 is the pinnacle of the BMW 3-series. With 50% increased torsional rigidity over its predecessor, fantastic cockpit like cabin, superb fit and finish, and an upgraded 6 cylinder engine that provides some serious torque, it is no wonder that the 3 continues to rack up raving reviews and sighs from car enthusiasts around the world. Also back is the four wheel drive edition of the three.
However, stiff competition from Lexus, Nissan, and Mercedes means that there is no rest for the nimble footed 3. And so the passing of the torch goes to the latest generation of 3s, with the hopes of passing on that fine tradition of taking on the open road in the best that man has to offer.
