I don't think so. This happened this past Saturday. Martin definitely said the new M3 would be available in the US "next year". Now he is a native German speaker, so maybe he meant to say something else in English but simply chose imprecise words. I do not think that is what happened. Don't get me wrong -- I want the new M3 to be available here this year, and not "next year." I am just passing info I recieved directly from someone who should and does know what they are talking about.
