Be interesting to know what the available options, etc. on the car are, as well as that all important price tag...

Oh, the pesky question of if they are going to bring it to the US or not too...

In an article Jason posted about this, I believe they got near confirmation from BMW that the EVO would not be for sale here.

Also, what is new about the front and rear bumper? Article seems like it has some facts wrong and doesn't mention the EVO name that most people believe will be its designation.

Edit: Here is the link to the bad news: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=520192

It's not MY article
It was in Autocar, the oldest car magazine in the world
So it's somewhat trustworthy
And it's dated today

yes, there will be a last hurrah here in the US.... Matt RUssell already confirmed it, but unfortunately, it will not be any engine (drivetrain for that matter) upgrades.

they will be special exterior/interior combinations, and some aesthetic upgrades.

Hopefully that won't be the case. Latest I heard from BMW and from a few folks here is that we'll find out later this month about the special edition M3 for the U.S.
