Are you talking in general or for a certain market?

US debuts are all later than in Europe.

I can tell you the E46 Coupe did not debut April '99 in the U.S. I know this because I bought a E46 323i in June '99. I wanted a Coupe but they weren't available yet. I'm pretty sure they were first available July '99.

Production - independent of any market. I believe the first E46s were almost as troublesome as the early E46s, so (speaking entirely selfishly) it is probably a good thing that some unfortunate souls got to beta-test the car before it starting shipping in big volumes to all markets. Having said that, my March 2003-build E46 is full of bugs and manufacturing defects :dunno:.

E46 Sedan: September 1998
E46 Coupe: September 1999
E46 Convertible and Wagon: March 2000
E46 M3: September 2001

Those are the dates that they're officially "on sale", but each vehicle debuted at Detroit or NY autoshow earlier in those years.
