Sedan (E90)

2009 BMW 335i sedan (US)

The sedan (saloon) model of the 3 series was the first model sold of the 5th generation BMW 3 series. Debuting in the US in 2006, the E90 came in two trims, the 325i/x and 330i/x models. Later, the US E90 received an engine boost with the debuts of the 2007 328i/x and 335i/x models.

BMW released an M3 variant of the E90 sedan for the 2008 model year. The M3 features the same V8 Engine as the Coupe. It separated itself from the standard E90 by utilizing the E92 coupe’s front fascia.

Touring (E91)

The Sports Wagon (Touring) model of the 3-Series is available with both rear-wheel drive and xDrive AWD. This model features a large Panoramic roof, which stretches far enough for passengers in the rear to enjoy.

Coupé (E92)

The two-door coupé model of the 3-Series became available in August 2006. It is the second BMW coupé offered with xDrive, after the 325 ix of the late ’80s and early ’90s. The coupé’s body is now its own design and no longer derived from the sedan minus two doors unlike its predecessors, being longer and narrower than its E90 counterpart. The E92 is installed exclusively in the BMW Werk Regensburg.

All E92s also come standard with Xenon HID headlights and “retractable seatbelt helpers” that extend from the B pillar to hand you the seatbelt when the key fob is in the ignition and the door is closed. The E92 comes with 320i, 325i, 325xi, 328i, 328xi, 330i, 330xi, 335i, 335xi, 320d, 325d, 330d, 335d and 330xd models (availability of certain models depends on region; diesels not available to the US market).

The M3 high-performance variant of the coupé debuted in 2007. It features an S65B40 V8 engine for the first time for the public.

The BMW M3 GTS is high-performance variant of M3 debuted in November 2009. It features an modified 4.4 M3 V8 engine with 450 bhp. In addition to engine upgrade it has improved brakes with 6 pot front brake calipers, new sports suspension, light weight body and adjustable rear spoiler.

Cabriolet (E93)

For the first time, the 3 Series convertible is no longer available with a folding soft top, the traditional fabric has been replaced with a 3 piece folding metal hardtop roof. The new Coupé-cabriolet is also the center of many new technological advancements for BMW as well as the recipient of many existing safety and performance technologies that have been improved upon for the new model. The new 3 Series convertible improves upon BMWs “Comfort Access” option, by allowing the user to completely raise and lower the folding roof by simply pressing and holding the respective buttons on the key fob.
The E93 are installed exclusively in the work Regensburg. The M3 High Performance variant of the Cabriolet debuted in 2008. It featured a V8 Engine for the first time.
