its a e46 m3. the same body style as the 2000-2003 coupes, but since its a M3 it has things like bigger fender bulges, side grille, and the M front spoiler. though that does look like it has some sort of widebody kit as well as big splitters and sideskirts
i know its an e46 3 series but there is like a couple different bmw's in the 3 series. It really doesnt matter id its a sedan or coupe. What car is it in the 3 series and by any chance if you could guess the year of that car? i am lokking for a 1999 BMW that i can hookup. Thanks

seeing that the car is modified that much its hard to tell, but judging by the grille and shadowline its either a 99-00 323i or a 2001 325i. there is no exterior difference, except for minor detail, between 99-2001 323's, 325's, 328's, and 330's

323i's and 325i's look the exact same on the outside (except for the optional sport wheels), what sets them apart is the shadow line around the windows and blackened out center section of the grille, there's also two black parallel lines at the bottom of the front apron. the 328i has a slightly different design at the bottom of the front apron, chrome grilles, and chrome trim. the 330i has the same design as the 328i in the front apron but with a titanium finish aswell as titanium inner headlight housings, along with the chrome grilles and window trim. that is only for sedans, its alot harder to tell the difference between 323, 325, and 328 coupes.
