You know what would be "special"? That 4.4L engine in a car that doesn't cost $130,000.

This is why BMW had to go with Turbo's on the M5 and HAS to go forced induction on the new M3. If they don't, all the competitors will eat them alive.

I'm all for a Turbocharged M3 and can't wait until it comes.

Then the mod's we do will bring almost 100 HP instead of everyone arguing over the power gains of a filter and exhaust.

Those M3's better come with an M sport package. Maybe they can have the M M sport package for a couple more grand.

This is indeed true. The halogen color ones look so outdated for a 2012.

The best part about that announcement was the music. I'm glad I bought into this company 4 years ago before they went totally insane. Before they started putting profit above ALL else.
I love this company but the direction hurts.

I disagree with most of you
I think these cars are very special
I mean they're the only special editions launched this month

I like the frozen red, but that's about it
Let me guess
The black grills, DCT, glossy CF trim
And all the other usual crap on ALL the other "special" editions
I think they mean special, like the special Olympics

M stands for Motorsport, doesn't it?

So in BMW's new marketing nomenclature we have:

Motorsport Sport (M-Sport)
Motorsport Performance (M-Performance)
Motorsport-3 Motorsport Performance

Hmmm...

Enough with this frozen paint BS already. After 30+ years of BMW ownership I guess its time to look to Porsche for a real performance model! Stop calling frozen paint a performance edition!
Unlike in the good old days when the E36 M3 LTW was offered at an affordable price. Now BMW would charge over 100 grand for a 350 lb weight reduction,coilovers, 40hp bump.

There was a time when the M didnt stand for marketing ,money grab.

The E36 M3 LTW price was in the mid 40's vs low 40's loaded E36 M3 when new .

Isn't the matte/frozen paint less smooth and actually increase airflow resistance vs the regular glossy paint?

I'm waiting for the M3 328i Special Edition...smaller brakes and skinnier tires riding on 16" steel wheels; special "M 328i" black emblems; 5-speed manual; non-M steering wheel; and high quality vinyl seats. Special "Frozen Popsicle" color...faded "Red Raspberry". Only 30 copies will be available at a $15K premium. Be the first to buy one and post it on Ebay.
