The e9x M3 should run the traditional 7 year cycle (2008 +7 yrs). I haven't heard about an engine change for the M3. The e36 displacement went from a 3.0 to a 3.2, but there was no change for the e46. The original start for production on the ZCP on the e46 was 12/04. There were modifications to the steering ratio, interior features, wheels, DSC, brakes, and suspension, but not the engine. I am sure BMW will keep the engine the same for the e9x generation.
