1. Will the M-DCT equipped M3s still have a GG $1,300 tax? If less, how much?

2. Will the M3 E93 be introduced as a MY 2008 or 2009?

3. For the M3 E93 intro, any new exterior colors being added to the list (like Atlantic Blue, as was done with the 335i E93 intro)?

1. I dont think so, my final order sheet is 1,300


But good questions, im stay praying that GGT will be lowered, but it seems very unlikely now.

Can we please get CA as a separate option for non-double-hump cars? MY2009?

Also, any chance MDM will be available as either a new standard feature, or a stand-alone option?

Hmmm....he's the M brand manager, I think I can predict the answer.

However, I may ask him how the 1 and 3 tii fits into the lineup.

I second this. I'd like MDM without ordering the tech package because I don't want EDC. I don't mind it with I-drive because it needs the interface, but I really would want to go with an aftermarket coilover setup.

How about... "Will 2009 E90 M3's receive the facelift treatments due for the rest of '09 E90 3-series?"

Great! What a priviledge Please ask away.

1. What is the actual shift time of M-DCT in S6 mode (in milliseconds)?
2. What will the GGT tax (if any) be on the M-DCT car?
3. Will US and EU launch control be different?
4. Do US M3's have BER?
5. Do US (or other) M3 have any limitations (redline, hp, etc.) before 1st service?
6. Why did the US M3s get different seat bottoms than in EU?
7. Why are US M3s heavier than EU one (actual standard equipment differences, option differences, different weight standards, etc.)?
8. Will dual canister style aftermarket exhaust systems interfere with the differential cooling or aerodynamic effect of the diffuser.

+1 to this, as well as Swamp's questions. Great questions.

Will we (US market) see a CSL version? If so, when? Is so, what are the specs? If not, why?

Any information about the CSL would be great.

Questions to supplement your question. Don't you need the nav to program the CA? I don't know that why I ask. Maybe thats why it is tied to the Nav package...

Nope. Wife's 335i has CA with no Nav. You can change the one-door/all-doors open option from the dash computer.

Where are the concept wheels?

Will they be part of a ZCP option offered later?

If so, will Brembo sourced brakes be a part of the ZCP?

If "actual shift time" is not clearly defined, I'm afraid you might get a marketing answer to this one. I am assuming you are referring to the power on/off delta t?
