The BMW 3 Series is a line of compact executive cars manufactured by the German automaker BMW since May 1975. It is the successor to the 02 Series and has been produced in seven different generations. The fifth generation of the BMW 3 Series consists of the BMW E90 (sedan), BMW E91 (wagon, marketed as ‘Touring’), BMW E92 (coupe) and BMW E93 (convertible) compact executive cars. The E90/E91/E92/E93 was introduced in December 2004, and produced by BMW until October 2013 and is often collectively referred to as the E90 or E9x. The E93 convertible was BMW’s first model to use a retractable hardtop (folding metal roof), instead of the cloth roof as previously used.
