Guys could it have something to do with side airbag regs? They are in the seats, are they not? Perhaps the M3 seats require the side airbags to be slightly different, and not up to US spec in some (no doubt inane) way? Or perhaps the way they deploy is slightly different for the M3, again violating US regs (again, in some archane fashion)?
