Hello, I was surprised to find out that a friend and fellow BMW CCA chapter member actually saw the new E46 being built in Germany. I double checked with him twice to be sure my information was correct and he assured me it was that was July 1st and they were just starting the build runs. If that is an indication, they will be here before long as there is no place in an assembly plant to stock pile cars, they must be moved out within a couple weeks. Assuming they are not waiting for parts or certification for US only cars you can expect them very soon. I'll guess October. Wish I was on the list, I'll have to make due with the E36 for now.
