The BMW 3 Series (E90/E91/E92/E93) is the fifth generation of the BMW 3 Series compact executive car, which was produced from 2004 to 2013. The body styles of the range are:

Due to the separate model codes for each body style, the term "E9X" is sometimes used to describe this generation of the 3 Series.

The E90/E91 sedans and wagons began to be phased out following the introduction of their F30/F31 successors in 2012. However, the E92/E93 coupes and cabriolets remained in production until 2013,[6] when they were replaced by the F32/F33 models.

The E92 335i coupe, introduced in 2006, was the first 3 Series model to be sold with a turbocharged petrol engine.[7] The E9X family also saw the introduction of run-flat tyres to the 3 Series range. Consequently, cars with run-flats are not equipped with a spare tyre.

The E90/E92/E93 M3 is the only generation of M3 to be powered by a V8 engine. Released in 2007,[8] it uses BMW's S65 engine and was produced in sedan, coupe and cabriolet body styles.
