: Well, it's released here soon. I will be getting a new 323i instead but it was a contender. I'll still be going to the launch though. A bit slow I think as its 0-100kmh (or 0-62mph) is 9.5secs - somewhat slower than a 323i's 8secs.
: It is a good try though (IMO). Post responses and I will upload images and brochures when to hand. I can also scan and upload the 3series brochure for Australia if anyone is interested.
Rumors are that Honda will have 4 door RWD sedan based on the S2000 mechanicals (2l 230hp engine, 6sp tranny) in 2000. I wouldn't want to guess about whether it will make it to the US (given most American's preference for larger engines). Hopefully these cars will push BMW to tune their upcoming 3l engine a bit more.
