Although BMW's 3-series has been arguably considered one of the best buys in the automotive market for quite some time, the Bavarians are never satisfied.

The E92/3 3-series coupes/convertibles have been heralded by the media and enthusiast's alike but it has started to show its grey hairs. Thankfully, BMW realized this and tweaked her up to get it ready to go out and woo the boys.

The revised model will bring about a bunch of modifications inside and out. They seem small but it certainly adds up. Here's a summarised list of the changes:

•New LED taillights
•Refined and widened kidney grille
•Redesigned front/rear bumpers
•Redesigned side mirrors
•New colors: Deep Sea Blue Metallic, Vermillion Red Metallic, Mineral White Metallic
•Modified paddle shifters are now "pull" operated -- "+" on right, "-" on left

To satisfy the hardcore enthusiasts, BMW introduced an all new turbocharged engine with Valvetronic for the 335i. Its new inline-6 engine displaces 3.0-liters and develops maximum output of 300 hp at 5,800 rpm, with peak torque of 300 lb-ft available all the way from 1,200–5,000 rpm.

Now, it appears that one of the most desirable coupe in the world has just sped off ahead of its competition again!

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
