Nice digs against MB philosophy in this one.
Damn I sure hope this is wrong. Based on the maturity of the mules, as well as how old the quote actually is I'm still optimistic for Geneva. Making sure that the cars get to NA as 2008 models also makes a debut in Sep 07 seem impossible (cars arrive in EU a couple months earlier than US). Only time will tell....

Looking at the amount of disguise on the spy shots now, the E92 M3 will be launched at Geneva March 2007.
