What I liked most about BMW rear ends is the grid-like, or very straight-line-oriented box-like design basis that goes into the tail lights. The E46's rear looks a lot more Japanese because the only pure "line" in the tail lights is between the red and amber. Also because the reverse light is enclosed entirely by the red, giving it that Honda touch, and because the red area is way too big. Only my opinion, but it is a damn shame. Maybe BMW will change the E46 tail lights in the near future, like Audi did to the A4.
