My volvo 240 is really getting old....and bmw is sure first on my list, but I want one of the "newer" ones. When did the newer type of BMW 3's come out? I've seen 1999 ebay bmws that has the look of the 2001-2002 bmws and I've seen other bmw's claimed 1999 with the older "Rectangle" headlights. When did the newer bimmers come out. thanks.

The "newer" BMWs out on the road are E46s. They have a rounder body style, and first came out in 1999 as the 323i and 328i sedan. Then later, different bodystyles came out and different engines.

The "older" BMWs are E36's, the ones with the rectangular headlights. I think the last E36 M3s and coupes were produced in 1999, so that may be why you see the discrepencies.
