2011 M3?

I was considering the purchase of a new 2010 M3 Convertible, but when talking with Central Texas Dealership person, he suggested i wait for the Q1 2010 M3 refresh. Specifically, he suggested that the new M3 will be sporting inline 6 that is expected to push 450hp.

Any one else getting similar reports? guidance?

I'm torn between a CPO 2009 M3 Convertible vs. 2010 M3 Convertible vs. now new data on possible 2011 M3 Convertible.

Regards,
-Pesh

The 2011 will not have the 6. BMW is not going through an LCI only to replace it within a year. The 2011 will look just like the Q1 2010 LCI; the redesigned 3 series, and M3 will likely follow in 2012 & 13 respectively.

Highly doubtful that the M3 will get any kind of power increase, not to mention a new engine with IL 6.

Best,


CSL

But its prolly not gonna happen until F30.

2011 BMW M3  [5.00]
From what I've read, the LCI in the 2010 M3 will have new LED tail lights only. That's the only upgrade. There is some speculation as to whether or not this LCI is making it a 2011 or what some would call a 2010.5 model. No one seems to know for sure. My dealer in Germany told me that if I put my deposit in April like I plan to, it will be a 2011 model and not a 2010. That's all I have to go on though...

The 2011 will not have a new engine from what I've read here.

They are planning to put a twin turbo 6 in the M3 but it won't be until at least 2012-2013, don't know about HP rating but 450 doesn't seem far fetched. I prefer a V8 over anything with a turbo. I suggest you buy now going to be a good 2 years before anything major changes.

You probably wouldn't sell anything. you would just stand around wth all of your product knowledge and leave at the end of the day having worked for free....although I agree all SA's should be better educated on the product.

Selling has very little to do with the product/culture and everything to do with the buyers motivation.
