BMW traditionally uses a 7 year cycle, so 2012 or 2013 should have a
re-designed 3 series.
As Erik pointed out, the 3 will be "refreshed" for 2009. Slight changes to
the hood and a change to the tail lights in the sedan (thank God) among
other, less subtle, things.
The 335d *should* also be available.
The coupe & convertible are supposed to remain unchanged.
I agree completely.
I would not buy a new 3 series until they got the tail lights straightened
out. I don't usually care much what a car looks like or what color it is (as
long as it isn't blue), but those tail lights were butt ugly and a deal
breaker with me.
The best description I have heard of the E90's design was "awkward".
