Luxury line looks better than I thought it would and the E46 looks very small compared to F32.

Thanks for posting the pics!

That's not fair E46 m3 is one of the best looking cars out there lol at least IMO would be better if the 4 had the m-sport package. Thanks for the pics modern line looks nice

You're comparing a bone stock non-M car without even the M sports package to a lowered, modified M3. Cool story, bro.

This is a better comparison...

To me, it makes the e46 look prehistoric.

I couldn't agree more. The 4 looks VERY refined... really happy with how it looks with the lux line actually.

old m3 got so much better looking front than regular 4. they should not sell new 4 without msport period. people complained about bangle designs but what about this front style? definition of ugliness!

That rear end view on the 4, from the doors back, is just pure sex! I'll say it again, the 4GC/M4GC will be the sexiest iteration of the new 4 series line.

12 years later and the e46 m3 is still sexy. The f32 is pretty nice but like someone said above, the side vent looks like something from autozone. :

I like the size and looks of the e46 better. I think bmw's are getting too big ad heavy. I guess that is why I dive a 1 series. lol
