Whoever Larry, Southlight, MarkE90M3, and a few other I have failed to mention, work for - give them all raises. They have been a shining light on forum that has been in a sea of darkness for months. The regulars here are so starved for info or pictures that our discussion has become a redundant bore. Its like a bad soap opera. You could not tune in for months and in one minute of viewing be up to date with the best of them. Oh ya, the pictures; Melbourne Red does look better here. The angle of these photos makes the E92M3 look wider/meaner. I believe these photos give a better indication how the M3 will look in real life.

Well, those shots of the rear end certainly aren't from a level angle. You can see the muffler plain as day. None of the "down-on-all-fours" bit. Hopefully there is a redisigned muffler floating around out there.

Odd tint on the front wheels as well.

Do you have any more photos of the interior?

The combination of bamboo beige and carbon leather is #1 on my list, but I wish BMW put a little more refinement into the interior. I think the seat backs should be the same color as the seat, not black, and that the center console should have the carbon leather trim and not just plain black.

Melbourne looks pretty good in these pics. I even like the 18's.

New Melbourne Red picture

This was taken in the UK. First pic I've seen of Melbourne Red with 19" wheels.

Still looks too dark for my liking, especially after staring at a Guards Red Cayman S for a little while today.

Comparing that picture to the press photos from earlier this month, I think it would be nearly impossible to justify staying with the 18" rims over the 19's.
I think BMW did a pretty handy bit of marketing to ensure an extra 2 grand on every new M3 sold by designing truly AWFUL standard wheels.

Can't agree on that. The 18's look AWESOME in real life with the 3D effect...

Best regards, south

Plus, they look better in silver, not the gunmetal.
