2008 BMW 3 Series Coupe

Production photos of the 3 series coupe are out....im too lazy to post them on here, go to edmunds to look. Not even sure if this is old news but this is the latest from edumnds.

"What We Know: Official details on the 2008 BMW 3 Series coupe are out and there are few surprises. Topping the lineup will be the new 335Ci. Although the coupe still uses a 3.0-liter straight six, twin turbochargers help produce 300 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. With its standard six-speed manual transmission, BMW says it will accelerate from 0-to-60 in just 5.3 seconds. A six-speed automatic is optional, but there was no mention of BMW's SMG being offered. The entry-level model will be called the 328Ci. With 230 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque, BMW claims it will be faster than the current 330Ci. One new twist to the lineup will be the addition of 328xi coupe, an all-wheel drive version of the 328Ci. There are few changes to the interior of the coupe compared to the 3 Series sedan. A new Pearl Gray chrome finish on the door handles and gear shift lever is exclusive to the coupes along with a slightly revised instrument panel which includes an oil temperature gauge. Sales of the new 3 Series coupes start in September."


I was looking for a car with alittle more refinment and class, but still had performance for when i become a teacher. M3 would be nice, but way to expensive....but this 335Ci with the twin turbos looks pretty damn nice to me, especially if they offer it with the SMG tranny Oh and the 2008 M3 will sport a 4.0l V8 that produces 400hp so that it can compete with Audis upcoming RS4.

Once again if this is old news sorry, just thought it was interesting, ive been waiting to see what they were going to do with the coupe.
