In Reply to: Please! No compact headlights on near future M3's! posted by Paul on November 13, 2000 at 23:04:02:
I've seen the pics of the new compact 3 series. How does this fit into the big 3 series picture? Will these headlights propagate across the whole model lineup over the next year or two. I'm on the edge of getting the 2001 M3 and might just get bumped into the first cars from the 2002 year. At first I wasn't upset figuring I'd get more options, colors (hopefully still Phoenix Yellow!) and maybe even SMG (for the wife), but if the 2002 M3 gets those headlights, I'll be taking my deposit and looking elsewhere. It's just as ugly as what Acura did to the Integras way back in the early 90's. I had planned on buying the Integra when I graduated, but by the time I did, they changed the headlights and I bought something else. I hope this doesn't happen again...
