Any shots of the front? The rear looks okay, it's definitely an advancement but it hasn't grown on me quite yet.

Yes, I did update the first post. There don't seem to be any changes at the front.

Le Mans Blue M3 E92

Finally some pics of an M3 Coupe in Le Mans Blue (at least I think so). Le Mans is going to be available for E90, E91 and E92 M3 from Sep on (in Europe, but I don't think that will differ for the US).

Again, european model shown.

To me, its too close of a color to IB. I'm surprised that they chose this color to replace Sgraphite.

Not too impressed with the rear buttlift. In addition, it makes no sense that BMW would release a body enhancement 1 yr following the release of the M series. Oh well, let's see what's in store for the e92.

I'm not sold on any of it yet...those tails are going to take some getting used to.

Anyway, I think that LeMans is a great color, but I don't really understand why they ditched SparkG for it. Why not just add LeMans and keep SparkG? The color choices are really limited.

Thanks for the pics, South. If only one of those pics ventured into the inside and showed us the i-drive. I know that somebody knows the answer to this!!!!

Okay, two posts back to back...I just looked again. I know you said that it is the euro model in both pics, but the sedan is wearing the US spec 18" rims while the coupe has the Euro version. Kind of weird...

Good catch! Any reason why the US 18" are different than the Euro 18". Especially when they look so similar...

South, thanks so much for the shots. Looks awesome. Can't wait to see what else you have in store for us.

Yeah, I noticed it on the second go around. Not sure why they are different design or why they are different in these pics. It is possible that the sedan is a US spec and they PSed the front reflectors. Who knows...could be a variety of answers. Also not sure why the euro and US 18"s are different in the first place...maybe South knows.

I think he is playing a cruel joke on us. He probably would have posted it in the first place...South doesn't forget stuff like that. But he has a sick sense of humor.

The interior will feature the new iDrive... what is the big deal? It has been confirmed a billion times.

Also the M5/M6 will receive updates. I am resizing all the photos now as well, so if South does not get them up I will....

Interior Pics

Here are the interior pics. Honestly, I thought it has been clear by now that all M3 versions will get the new iDrive. Not part of my sick sense of humor.
