E46 Ci - One of the best cars of its generation

7 years on, and still a looker ... the E46 Ci (Coupe).

Wikipedia pays homage ...
E46 automobile platform is the fourth generation of BMW's highly successful 3 Series entry-level luxury car / compact executive car.
The sedan was introduced in 1998 and replaced the E36 sedans the same year.
The touring and coupé models appeared in 1999 with BMW's newly designed steptronic transmissions (available in all 3 series models), and the convertible and M3 later in 2000.
The E46 experienced enormous success in all markets and was widely considered the performance benchmark of its class.
The record year for the E46 was 2002, when 561,249 vehicles were sold worldwide.
As a credit to the E46 platform, it was chosen for Car and Driver Magazine's "10 Best Cars" every year of its production.
