The BMW 3 series has become one of the most popular production automobile lines ever produced. Since its inception, the BMW 3 series lineup has taken the world by storm with its pronounced style, elegance, and unsurpassed driving experience. Since the original E21 3 series body style released in May of 1975, BMW has designed numerous body style changes and engine upgrades with one goal in mind: To uphold the tradition that has made the 3 series cars the most sought-after in the world.

The 2010 BMW 3 series models (coded E90 and E92 by the designers in Munich) feature the traditional Inline-6 cylinder engine that has been a staple of the 3 series from the start. However, unlike previous 3 series body styles, the 3.0L engine is common among all of the variants of the car. This includes the newly re-offered 328i, as well as the new and ferocious 335i. In previous models, the 328i would have been fitted with a 2.8L engine, and the 335i with a 3.5L engine. To reduce costs and improve the commonality of parts, BMW has changed to an all-3.0L fleet.

Have no fear: This 3.0L Inline-6 packs quite the punch for those looking to have a little bit of fun with their cars. Those who opt for the 335i model of the car will be taking the reins of a 300 horsepower monster. This engine is tuned for torque, with its 300 ft/lbs of torque being found at 1400 RPM. Those interested in the understated 328i model will find its 230 horsepower more than sufficient on the open road. With 200 ft/lbs of torque found at 2750 RPM, passing is a breeze.

With BMW's 3.0L Inline-6 in front of you, you'll be enjoying your 2010 BMW 3 series car for years to come.
