Hey guys and gals,

I have seen a lot of written comparison between these cars, but this is the best graphic representation I have come across.

Enjoy.

Cool. Thanks. I have a hard time telling if an on coming BMW is f30 or e90. Until I see an f30 and realize just how different they are.

This is cool! Thanks for sharing!

Why do people complain about the added length of the F30 vs the E90. It's only 3.5" longer! Looks like an inch of that is at the front so the rear is only 2.5" fatter. That's less than the width of a credit card!

What I want to see is F30 vs E39 vs E60 vs F10 vs E65 vs F01. Of course it would probably be very hard to look at since it would be so cluttered.

Personally, I've had a harder time deciphering between f30 and f10. Now I know the headlights connect to the kidney grills in the f30 compared to the f10, but before I couldn't tell one from another.

Thanks for post the schematic, the image proves that looks are deceiving.

This seems spot on to how i felt sitting in the F30 and F10 compared to my E90.

F30 didn't feel any different to me compared to my E90. Sorta felt right at home when i got in. Never drove the F30 so can't comment about that.

F10 on the other hand felt huge and much bigger all around. Felt bigger when on the road as well but also much more refined and quieter. Very solid unlike my E90 which creaks and rattles with only 16K miles.

Seriously? There is no similarities between the E90 and the F30. The headlights, bumpers, grilles, hood and EVERYTHING are totally different.

If anything the rear is almost identical to the F10, so if you said I can't tell the F30 from the F10 from the rear, I would agree 1000000000%. But you didnt even mention that...

I think you mean from the rear, the F30 and F10 would be understandable to mistake the two, because they have nearly identical tailights.. but the E90and the F30 have nothing in common in the rear either.

I agree but I do think that the more squared-off look of the F30 makes it look bigger than it is.
