The retractable h.ard-top convertible, meanwhile, was a first for the 3 Series.
The E90 was available with four-cylinder and six-cylinder engines, and the E92 M3 used a V8 engine. The first turbocharged petrol 3-series was the E92 335i, which uses the BMW N54 straight-six. The N52 naturally aspirated inline-six engine features a lightweight magnesium/aluminum construction, electric water pump, and Valvetronic variable valve lift. In 2007, a record total of more than 550,000 vehicles were sold and it was the seventh most popular car in the United Kingdom.
