Guys, just got back from NAIAS today, and I just had a few pictures to add to those who have already posted. The show is great by the way, if you have a chance to go. It is always cool to go see the million-dollar displays that the mfr's put together.

The 325Cic had the sport package, which came with these cool-looking wheels. I don't know if these with be the production spec, but if so, I think I like them better that the 44's:

Pricing on the 325Cic was as follows:

The 330Ci SP still had the gorgeous 68's:

Pricing on the 330Ci was:

The M3 retains the current front end, as reported:

but has the LED taillights:

I happened to catch the LED clear turn-signals on one time:

I have lots of great 4MP hi-res pictures if you want to e-mail me for these or other shots.

I have no idea why some pics are working and some are not.

Guys, some of the pics (particularly the text ones) look bad after I compressed them to manageable size.

If you are interested in the full-resolution pricing, send me an e-mail:

That's odd, I didn't notice that the M3 had LED tail lights at the LA Auto Show.

Thanks for sharing the pics. Everything looks great less the faux air ducting on the Ci. :tsk:

Things you only notice in photographs...

We were there a couple of days ago, but I'd swear it was billed as the 2003 autoshow.

Interesting that those 3 Series are billed as 2004 models:dunno:

Very odd, so the M3 had the new LED taillights but the front lights where the old style? Do you have any pics of the front of that m3?

I also wonder if the M3 will have the adaptive lighting that is new for the coupe. It would seems kind of dumb to retrofit old style lights with it, waste of engineering money.

Jeff, you're right - M3 is old headlights in front, LED in back. Here is a picture of the front of that M3.

I don't think the M3 will have the adaptive lighting technology. Notice the title and price difference on this M3 pricing vs. the 3 coupe/vert above.

Great, so now we have to pay an extra $100 for Xenon lights whether we wanted the adpative feature or not.:tsk:
