Raksti: BMW E46 3 Series
The fourth generation of 3 series was introduced in 1998 as E46 3 series. A complete new design with a nice looking interior and some updated engines. The higher price of the new 3 series did not matter, it sold well from the start.

Mid-year 1998 (MY 99) 316, 318, 320, 323, and 328 sedans are released to worldwide markets, designated "i"(excluding the US). 1999 323 and 328 E46 Sedans introduced in the US (The 316 to 320 models were not released in the US to the general public at any point). E46 Coupe is launched into worldwide markets, designated "Ci" (excluding the US). E46 Touring is launched into worldwide markets, designated "iT" (excluding the US).

BMW's design chief, Christopher E. Bangle, is the first to admit and justify that the new car, internal code E46, is an evolutionary statement. "When we make a revolutionary model change as happened with the jump from the E30 to the E36, its successor will be evolutionary," he said. "This keeps customer confidence and residuals high, and allows us to perfect the basic design. I can tell you now that the E46's eventual replacement will be revolutionary."
