Any idea when //M version coming out?

Has any info been released on when the M version of the e90 will be available? Are they making the M3 coupe only like they did with the e46? I hope they make both a coupe and sedan version, just like they did with the e36 M's.

Same here. I've outgrown my American muscle car phase and am ready to step into the world of German cars. I think I need the M version, the 330 just won't have the torque I'm used to. I'll finally be able to make turns while going fast!

I don't know when it's due, but with this talk of the M5 being SMG only, I'm concerned that the M3 will be the same way. Anyone have any info on this?

I think anyone holding out for the M3 will have a long while to wait.

no way M3 will be SMG-only. anyways it's been confirmed that a 6speed is being tested for the M5 for the states.

It should be out at the end of '07, maybe. Its normally released after the coupe. The 335i will make a nice inbetween vehicle, to fill the gap between the 330i performance and the next M3

M3/E90 sedan in 2006

I´think that there is an great chance, that we see the new M3/E90 frist in the 4-door sedan form in Geneva 2006...because there are only prototyps in sedan form seen until today ( complete with big brakes, wide track, and four tailpipes )...all E92 coupe cars shown are the new turbo 335ti or 435ti with only two big tailpipes.

My Sales Advisor told me that the M3 should come out about a year or so after the coupe.

Talking New M Coupe w/ new e90 M3 V8

That would be what I want...after e36/46 M3, I want something else (just can't leave the ///M clan yet), and the new M coupe looks amazing!!

Truly wish that BMW would treat it like the previous M coupe when they stuff the e46 M3 engine in there in the last year (or two) of it...E90 M3 V8 engine in the new M coupe would be insane!!

bavarian19: I knew you were kidding. When I saw Ashburn, VA, I figured you were talking about Sterling BMW.

I currently have an Audi A4 1.8T w/ mods but I'm still not satisfied. Going to get either M3 or 335i depending on price of course.

Spring '07 at the earliest (unlikely)... Summer '07 is the current claim by BMW internally.
