For example - the 3er coupe and vert (back at the end of the e30 days and the start of the e36 days) stood out. They even had some exclusivity. I had a 318i manual and I was the SH** to alot of people. Today, my wife doesn't even notice a 3er (I do, of course. But, again, enthusiast vs non).

Not sure why we need a *4* series at all. I mean a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 6GC, 7... that's alot of market confusion. What's next? a 7 coupe? a 1GC?
Agreed. I'm still confused by the new models, it seems as though the entire line is being watered down and nothing stands out anymore.
