I'm really sorry I missed this one! I went on Saturday and all they had was a baby blue 325Cic (non-facelifted) :thumbdwn:

I know that looks like TiSilver, but does anyone know whether it's actually the new Silver Grey? They also had a mystic blue 325Cic there, so I figured they might have brought the other new color in too.

Where'd that pic come from? Did you go again? If I were there again I'd want to turn on the tail lights and see what the new LED light pattern looks like... :angel:

Yes, they do this every year. If the company has enough to go around, after the formal announcements are made in Detroit, they roll the new stuff out onto the LA floor. That's why, in the past, I've always tried to go to the show after Wednesday.

looks good... did anyone take a pic of the convertible to its right? I know that there have been a few pics from Detroit, but it would be nice to see an interior shot.

I believe the 325Cic at the LA Auto Show was a non-facelifted Topaz Blue car....

Wasn't the blue facelifted pic from the Detrioit Auto Show?

the 325Cic at LA this weekend was a non-facelifted version.

I'm going tomorrow late morning... anyone else here going to be there?

This is why I always wait (aside from the crowds)...

After seeing the facelifted 325Cic with the M68 wheels, I want to see what kind of wheels are on that facelifted 330Ci. Anyone?

I will!! I should be there around 11:30 to noon. I will be at BMW first thing to check out the 330HP and now the 330Ci.

I hate the crowds, too.

I'll probably get there at about 10:30 and will be there till about 2:00 or so. Then I'm off to kill some time somewhere (to avoid traffic) till I meet someone in Sherman Oaks.

Don't know how we will identify eachother... :D

I'm Asian, my girlfriend is Asian and I will be carrying a digital camera.:dunno:

I guess it would be hard to identify each other, huh.

I can tell you that I will be wearing a North Carolina Tar Heels hat that is navy blue and says "HEELS" on the front and the school log on the back. Most likely shorts and a sweatshirt. All the above is true, too.:D

Okay, I'll keep an eye out for ya. I have no idea what I'm going to wear tomorrow. But I do know that I'm a white guy with brown hair/blue eyes, and I'll be going alone. :dunno:

Anyhow hope to see ya, otherwise have a great time!

Hopefully I'll see you there, too. Just scream Dave to any Asian guy you see wearing a blue hat.:D

Is the headlight trim black on that coupe ? :confused:

This facelifted coupe is going to cause havoc among the Angel Eyes manufacturers. Just when they got all of the fine points down, BMW is changing this on them. :rolleyes:

Both of the E46s I saw at the LA Auto Show were FaceLifted...I went today (Wednesday.) They look good, and I can't wait til I can retrofit those LED Taillights into my car. :D

I wonder if that will be possible? Different connectors?

I wonder if they are going to add the LED lights to the sedan. The 330i HP had the standard brake lights. I would thing they won't update until MY 2004.
