Here's my take on it.

1999: E46 sedan release
2000: E46 coupe release
2001: E46 M3 release
2002: E46 sedan facelift
2003: E46 coupe facelift (although it will be an '04 model)
2004: E46 M3 facelift
2005: Next generation 3 series sedan
2006: Next generation 3 series coupe (although it will be called 4 series)
2007: Next generation M3

One generation in BMW = 6 years, with a facelift after 3

The dealer told me that the 2006 facelift is fugly. It s gonna look similar to the 745 look. But hey, to each's own.

2007 is wayy off, might as well get your M3 now before the face-lift, then trade it in when the new M3 comes.
