M3 E90 sedan on the IAA Frankfurt?

Is their any chance that the M3 sedan is shown in some form on the IAA in September?
I have pre-ordered the sedan for delivery ín the 1.Quarter of 2008. So I hope, I could have a first look at Frankfurt. perhaps behind the courtain as special offer for M-Owners.

Probably not. Frankfurt is the public debut of the E92 M3.

The cabrio will most likely be debuted before the E90.

How certain are you of that Q1 2008 delivery for the sedan? It would be great if true. Popular belief is that it will not go into production until later in 2008 and arrive around September as a 2009 model.

85% certain...because the pre-order form ended June 2008...so if the sedan comes september 2008 or later it makes no sence to sign this order...my dealer tolds me that last delivery June 2008 are only included to be on the safe side, but delivery would be certain earlier...

Also Germancarfans.com and the two biggest german car magazins quotes that delivery of the E90 sedan is before the E93 convertible...and an presentation of an convertible make only sence before summer...conclusion: the sedan must come out as late as early 2008. :rocks:

Why don't you go down to Munich and wait outside M division. I am sure within a few moments you will see a few M3s on view....!!!

Good news - autobild claims that the facelifted 3er series debuts on the IAA in Frankfurt...to counter the new c-class and a4
http://www.autobild.de/artikel/Theme...en_376134.html

And I remember that someone in this forum (SCOTT26?) quots that the E90 M3 debuts with the facelifted E90...

Hmm - thanks for the info Uli_HH. I really hope the E90/E91 facelift shows at Frankfurt. I wonder if that will begin production early '08 for a March release, or if we are talking September? (I also wonder if the 335i get a bump in power?)

I suppose if the E90 facelift is released for March, then that would pave way for the E90 M3 in that timeframe.

That could also mean that the E90, E92 and E93 M3 all debut at the same time here in the US. But that's very speculative on my part.
