: Sales seem to be way up with the new design.
The E36 also sold much better than the E30.
With each generation, BMW moves the 3-series more to the mainstream (where the money is). That's good for BMW, but in another generation or two, you won't be able to tell the 3'er from an Accord.
But, hey, Honda has still sells many more Accords than BMW sells 3's, so the Accord must be better, right (based on your logic)b? No. Just more mainstream.
Hmmm... Something to think about.
