2009 M3 Catalog (PDF)

Here's a direct link to the 2009 M3 catalog, available through the BMW international website.

PDF:
http://www.bmw.com/com/en/newvehicle...?download=true

If that link doesn't work, go here and choose either Current Product Catalog or Interactive Flash Catalog: http://www.bmw.com/com/en/newvehicle...roduction.html


It doesn't say 2009, but the new i-drive, headrests, and other interior updates (start button, lightswitch, etc) all indicate that this is the MY2009 brochure. I'm sure once BMWNA photshops some reflectors on the front and then waits 3 weeks for no reason we'll see this on the USA site.

Enjoy!

I don't know why on earth does BMW installs wood trim on the dashboard, and doors on the M models. I know it is an option, man but that is such a turn off for me. These are pure,race-bred sports car. And yes, I know everyone has his or her own niche, but BMW ought to stick to the early days of M breeding philosophy.

well, different strokes for different folks. if you want to go that route, they shouldn't be making a sedan or a convertible, only coupes. there is only one wood option, i'm happy with the other three. the wood looks blah to me, but others like it...so why not.

These pictures out of the iDrive Training manual pretty much confirm it:
