    When will the new M3 Cab be out?

    Hi guys,

    I'm looking at getting another car, but it HAS to be a convertible. I'm quite leaning towards the new M3 and the dealer told me they will have one within a weeks time, but I want a Cab Anybody have some inside info?

    Re: When will the new M3 Cab be out?

    Good choice
    8300 rpm with the top down in a tunnel should be interesting

    Word on the street is next year as a 2009 model. It will probably be shown in Detriot or Geneva. By then the M-DCT gearbox will also be ready if that is of interest.

    This from Scott26 at M3post:

    I am currently in South Africa working on the first promo shoot of the M3 Cabrio ( we go to Scotland and other country over the summer)

    The Cabrio will be launched early November it looks like it might debut in LA or Detroit , The 1er Cabrio which I go onto after M3 Cabrio will also debut at a US show.

    Both Coupe and Cabrio and gearbox options will be available for the North American market simultaniously this is still on for Spring 2008.

    Geneva 2008.

    Regarding M-DCT... I just re-read some documents about it and about how will it work in new M3. I will say only this-let's hope it will be reliable...

    BUT, already new M3 is offering way too many technical setup options(active chassis, throttle response, steering etc.) so, new M-DCT will add another mess to it.
    It seems to me that BMW M technical stuff did not know how to made the car originally...

    Porsche at least learned few things since new GT2 is offering only one throttle response setup(and that is a very good thing IMHO)...

    Thanks for the feedback! I don't feel like waiting till the 3rd quarter of 2008 for it to only DEBUT! So we're expecting delivery then end 2008?

    What is this new MDCT?

    Dual Clutch Transmission.

    Re: When will the new M3 Cab be out?

    M Double Clutch Transmission...

    Or BMW M version of DSG, just with 7speed. The same layout will be on Porsche's PDK as well.

    M3 with new M-DCT will be capable for maximum speed of 295km/h with 07ME M Driving Package option...

    Re: When will the new M3 Cab be out?

    Mike, it is so far away. Why not get a AMV8 roadster for the time being?

    The Geneva show is in March, is that in Q3 south of the equator

    Delivery should be late summer, around august, in Europe at least.

    BMW is too busy perfecting M3 brakes....those legendary BMW engineers are prob reading and re-reading some book like "Brake Engineering for Dummies"
