Those numbers correspond to the specific model platform. They help delineate the "generations" of cars (Mercedes has numbers like that too). The 2001 3-Series and M3's are E46's whereas the previous generation 3-series was E36. Look at the home page for bimmer.org. They organize their forums by generations.
