    1655 with fuel? Because M3 E46 is 1580 with fuel

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    This would probably be my choice - Space Grey with 19":

    ...and you shoud see the discussion on few BMW forums. They are not happy with the weight in German Press PDF about M3.
    Weight is presented there in EU1 standard 1655kg(with 68kg for the driver and 7kg of luggage)so, that means that actual weight is 1580kg!!

    Some people are really funny...



    I don't follow your train of thought. Are you saying the quoted weight is satisfactory or that it's heavy.

    Personally from my perspective I bemoan the way that successive generations of cars become heavier. I would prefer technology to be applied to counteract this, so it's always a shame to see a car gain in weight especially since the engine was 15kg lighter than the E46 M3s.

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    Steve,

    Actually you thought that new M3 will be little bit lighter then it is. At least you replied to me that way in thread about M3 Concept few weeks ago...

    Saftey features! This is one of the biggest reasons why ia new generations of sportscars heavier then previous one. At least IMHO...

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    Yes, I thought it would be. BMW claimed it would be impressive and I have no doubt they tried very hard, but it is a shame that all those talented engineers efforts will not be valued. Most people will just look at the figures and assume that the engineering is lazy and they could have done better.

    I may perhaps be joining EVO in a few months to run a comparison test against its competitors, so I will get to see how it drives and ideally compare it against my M3 CSL. I have one on order myself, and would intend to use it as a daily driver but I'm actually inclined to choose a darker colour that hides the CF roof, because compared to my CSL the use of lightweight materials seems a little fake.

    I am sure it drives well, but I always want my cars to be lighter..

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    Sparkling Graphite will look awsome on new M3 IMHO.

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    I am tempted by that Melbourne Red, I have always wanted to own a red car but never like the colours I have seen. I also quite like the Jerez Black and then of course Interlagos Blue which I already own on a Z4M Coupe. Not sure about the greys since I already own my CSL in Silver Grey. Might be best to go for something really different.

    Kreso, my thoughts exactly , was just toying with the colors and sparkling graphite would be THE color for this new beast.

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    Denis,

    We both seems to have good taste...

    As we already said for new M3 Sparkling Graphite is the ONE!

    I like Grey's a lot...

    997 turbo-Meteor Grey(but, your Black looks pretty good)
    R8-Daytona Grey

    I guess that world is really not black or white for me...

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    This was my M3 , also grey , loved that car and color.
    I love black for a Porsche but beautiful grey is nice too.

    I wonder how this stacks up against upcoming RS5? that would be interesting.



    It's pretty clear to me that the new M3 is aimed squarely at the B7 RS4, figures are too similar. I bet audi are quite pleased. BMW introduce their 420HP, 'naturally aspired high revving V8' in the new M3....same 0-60 times etc..

    I'd guess the RS5 would pack a serious punch if it arrives, Audi have to offer it with more grunt than the RS4 given it's the model up.

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    thanks for the info kreso.. the red car in red looks hideous ,its much better in graphite or white..but no doubt they have a problem in the styling department

    I'm surprised that other than white they have no other light colors all dark shades of Gray .

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    I think it looks fricken great in the pics Temm posted.

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    Stupid idiiiots. Looks muuuuuuch better without that fabulous cr*p back there . God, what sh*t!



    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    The vent at the back actually serves a purpose, it's not just for aesthetics.

    Yes, that may be true. However a fancy, frilly, fabulous, over-freeking-designed vent-embellishment is not "aesthetic" as far as I, a BMW owner since I learned to drive, had in mind.

    I agree, SG is my favourite color for the 3-coupe after Titanium Silver, but after seeing the pics of this Space Grey X5 in Geneva, it would be a close race btw SG and Space.

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    The new X5's rear looks rather nice!

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    I think BMW should be appluaded for taking so many risks in their designs. Maybe the car is awkward looking in some places, but you have to admire them for not taking the ultra-conservative route.

    I dunno. My belief is they are taking the "boy-racer" route. Like focus-grouping to see what 20-30 y.o. hotrodders would like the car to look like.

    I believe they tend to like aggressive reptilian-looking cars.

    To me it's a low mentality; excusable because of youthful inexperience and psychological impact of repeated hormonal surges.

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    Do you think so? I hadn't thought of it that way. I think they try to appeal to educated people who appreciate bold design.

    Re: New BMW M3 official pics...

    Tech specs state the new M3 is 1655kg, compared to the RS4 which is 1650kg. Is this correct?
