The M3 Concept is a CSL, the M3 will be a toned down version of this.

M3 Concept had CF Roof, CF induction chamber, Michelin Cup tyres. So it was the CSL version - and it's a runner which means it could be here within a year.

That was Andy Prilaux, WTCC champ

The show sucked imo...for an m3, i was expecting fireworks, hot babes, a few burnouts or like an atomic bomb going off...this looks like the phrase "all this hype for nothing" would b in place 2 b used

The side vents seem weird imo, theres a side signals in the side air vents? (can some1 correct me if im wrong).

I think that all the M's look the best from behind, but again, this doesnt blow me off...I think taht some of the spy pics that were on this website look a lot better, more agressive...this looks like a car ud give ur girlfriend...

Interior looks amazing, seats r great and so is the steering wheel (does taht come standard?)

Of course most important will be the specs, but i would still expect more...

Its great to finally see some pics, but now the waiting begins to hear official powertrain specs, weight, and price.

Car looks hot tho!

What I find interesting are the hood vents, and the non-replica CSL wheels. This is a first for the E9x. Unless I'm mistaken, all that has been available has been the replica CSLs. The E46 CSLs use the less aggressive offset, and the replicas have a differently shaped front wheel.

Hi Steve,

I was wondering if that was the case. Great news if so and even better if it's a manual. I may have to change my order from an M3 to a CSL.

Nic.

i thought the m3 would be wider than that...thats so close to an normal e92 but with different front/rear bumpers..

my guess is that that is the CSL version.

Stock m3s will most likeyl not have that trunk (with the molded wing), CF roof, and all that CF inside.

This better have at least 400hp....if not then

The exhaust looks like it has a bigger bore then the current setup. The tips look rolled also.
