I saw my first ever E90 Today! While in Amsterdam, I stopped by the BMW dealership and got to see 3 different new 3-Series. Wow! The car looks even better in person than in any of the official photos or magazines.

I posted a write-up and many pics of what I saw here:

Here's Sparkling Graphite!

Received confirmation from both BMW and Porsche that Factory Tour requests were confirmed. BMW stopped tours of the Munich plant in mid-December until April, 2005 due to the new E90 model changeover. They have also revised the Munich Plant tour schedule and the tours are now at 6:00 pm on Tuesdays or Thursdays.
