Best looking E9X M3? (hopefully with poll this time)

I myself ordered the e92 coupe. If the rear lights on the E90 were similar to the E92 or more attractive (i know this is personal opinion), then I would have most likely ordered the E90 for it's practicality...but the rear lights are the main reason I went the coupe way.

Sometime I also wonder why would BMW do this and change the look of the lights/shape on the coupe vs sedan, and lose customers, by going the Audi or Benz way based on styling, etc.?

back in the E36 days, the coupe and the sedan had similar styling, including not so different rear lights, and I if i was in the market back then, I would have easily ordered the sedan with no regret, since they were not so different!!

All three have awesome asses. I love this pic... (Not mine, got it from the "Official M3 Competition Package (ZCP) Sedan / Coupe Thread" link)

But I am biased and do like the E90 ass a whole lot more... It does look more aggressive and I dont really see how it is generic? Its the ass of an M3 with quad pipes and fatty tires and an ///M badge. Looks good to me.

Rear lights?!? I would have thought other factors would have more of an impact...four doors, rear seating, roof line, carbon fiber roof...

Not sure you have a choice now anyway...good thing you like the coupe.

Oh, my choice is the E92.

They do it to differentiate them, and eventually will be charging more for the coupe (more so than now when the differences are expanded F80 vs F82).

And I really doubt people move to a new brand because of a tail light design. In your case you just went to the coupe.

I actually think the sharpness of the E90 LCI lights are more aggressive than the coupe.

E92 COUPE!!!

The e92 M3 is after the Aston Martin V8 Vantage the most beautiful car on the road today, the e92 M3 look is magnificent so well proportion with the outstanding flowing lines , the car just shows its muscle in a very clever way…so elegant, like a pro-athlete in a high-end tux, just perfect fit…

Coupes. They make the best race cars. No one races an M3 sedan.

The E93....duh.

If I wanted a car styled like the e90/e92 I'd have bought the new Kia Optima and saved myself about 70k.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
