    New BMW M3 official pics...

    ...leaked out!







    18" standard wheels look to small IMHO...

    0-100km/h: 4.8s
    Max: 295km/h

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    But, they could be fake as well...

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    Thanks!
    Good find!

    The bump on the engine cover looks weird from the side!
    I know the E46 M3 also has a bump but it looks much less intrusive!

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    Nice find kreso .


    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    Red doesn't work on the new M3 so well for me.

    The bump does look a bit strange

    Bet it drives great though

    I wonder how it compares to the RS4...

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    side profile looks hideous. Car doesn't do it for me in the looks department.

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    Just another red 3series coupé for me, sorry.

    I guess the M3 lost its fascination on me long ago...

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    Glorious engine... horrible looking car...

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    give it some time guys..... you will eventually like it

    This car looks disgusting

    I agree BUT I have hope that:

    1. In person it will look not AS bad.

    2. Ordering in a dark color will be a must and make it look not as bad.


    Conclusion. I have an 04 M3 and will need a new M3 (in addition to the 997S).

    Other than 997 There's no substitute for the M3!

    It is still the only alternative to the Carrera; PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong.

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    What blows it for me is all the confusing stylistic sh*t sticking out of and slapped onto the car.

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    Look is only "so,so" IMO.
    BUT, what I do not understand is that most people that do not like new M3 is raving about new CL65AMG-simply "Old Pimp car" IMO. Imagine White CL65AMG with P.Diddy at drive seat...

    Back to new M3-performance will be excellent, price wise with best performance/price ration at the market.
    Full optioned M3 will cost around 80.000Euro in Germany.

    IMO this car will be without any competition for some times... New RS4 is 3 years away, RS5 2 years away...

    BTW, new Audi S5 also does not look good IMHO...

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    Yeh, there's definitely some anti-BMW discrimination on this board.

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...



    so whats the weight?

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    420 hp and 4.8 sec 1-100??

    too heavy....how about reduce the weight by taking off those stylistic features of the car

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    Looks about as fantastic as the M5 and the M6 which are both disgusting cars.

    Oh my god. What is going on at BMW.
    Can anyone on here really admit to themseleves that they like both or either of the M5 or M6, and NOW this???
    The M5 and the M6 have already been poorly received, and looking at this M3, I wouldn't expect anything different.

    My condolences go out to BMW.
    They need help. Sure its got power, but 500HP hasn't saved either the M5 or M6. And the fact that this M3 has 420HP isn't going to save it from its own disgustingly boring looks.

    You know MB is that much closer now.

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    I was under the impression that the M5 has been doing well in the market.

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    Weight-around 1610kg(with all fluids)...

    Too heavy for a two-door-rear-drive-3series-coupé.

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    You are forgeting few things:

    -Audi RS4 weigths 1660kg according to official data, but actual weight of RS4 is around 1710kg. And even with all that weight RS4 is very fast car(but, not because of its power robbing AWD)...
    -BMW 335i coupe weights more then new M3.
    -BMW is pretty honest regarding weight(best is Porsche), unlike Audi/Lamborghini...
    -even Audi S5 is heavier(1635kg)...
    -new C63AMG will weight close to 1750kg...

    Point is that we need to give new M3 a fair chance.
    I agree with you regarding looks and the fact that this new M3 is not mythical as e30 version was!

    In fact I would rather choose new M3 and 997 turbo(manual/LSD) then CL65AMG for the same money!!

    Kreso, I'm not forgetting about all those things you mentioned above, I'm just complaining that ALL new cars are getting way too heavy.

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    Stefan,

    I agree fully with you!

    Only few sportscars do not weight too much:
    -Corvette Z06
    -Ferrari F430
    -all version of 997 including turbo

    All others are fat pigs including Gallardo(ok,not new SL version ).
    Belive it or not, but new Audi R8 will weight more then 997 turbo(weight for manual with LSD is 1580kg as measured by AMS) in AMS test(publish time late April/early May 2007)...

    Well, at least you do not have that "fat pig" problems with your car...

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    The RS4 looks miles better, inside and out.

    I liked the concept M3 they showed, but this is just bland IMO. I bet it's priced lower than the RS4 as well.

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    Absolutely right, Kreso.

    I really hope the sports car manufacturers think about it. Make the cars a little bit smaller, no need for cars being longer than 4.30 m for example. Make them lower, a F430 sits a little bit too high. Don't make them as wide as they currently are, a low car with width of 1.90 m looks at least as aggressive as a car that is more than 2 m wide and has greater height. Moreover if the car is not too wide, it is easier to handle on small roads.
    And finally increase light materials such as Carbon and Aluminium to keep the weight down.

    If they all do that, cars with around 1200 to 1300 kg would be possible withouth problem, together with a power output of 550hp that would be hell of a drive.

    Exterior is exactly the same as the concept (sans color). The only reason you dislike this picture and not the concept is the different camera angles.
