Thumbs up

Absolutely LOVE it!
Needs a moon roof option.
Needs an auto trans option.
Needs chrome window trim.

I've been waiting for this new M3 Sedan for a long time!

Mine will be Jet Black with Lemon interior!

Woohoo!

Love it but...

Why do they go for the silver in the shoots I think the black, white or red looks the best? It must be the most neutral of the colors to appeal to the largest segmment of the population?

I'm with you all with the back tail lights I thought for sure they'd have the E92lights instead.

That is going to be one bad ass sedan!

What, no sunroof?

Overall not too exciting. the deltas from the 06 e90 are subtle. i think the e46 m3 looks better but who knows i may grow to like this one better

Agreed, I noticed that too; the gap looks bigger then on my E92! WTF??

roof?

wheres the carbon fiber roof? maybe theyre going for a more executive and sophisticated design with the M3 sedan. haha

and one more thing, i love how they took the front of an E92, and the rear of an E90, but what is it classified as? an E90 M3, or E92 M3?

When do we get this front end on the e90?

Anybody know when the standard e90s will get this front end treatment?
Hope they change the tail lights too...

What's odd is that I have never been a fan of the e92 until I saw the M3 version. Thought it was gorgeous. I always preferred the e90 with sport package. However with the release of the ///M...it's the complete opposite. Love the e92 ///M, not really diggin the e90 ///M...lol. Something just isn't right. It looks as if it's trying too hard to look good...too busy.
Same here. The E92 M3 is aggressive and beautiful. Its just impractical to go on trips in a coupe. Looks like I'll be in the market for an E90 335i with some upgrades...or maybe an 04 E39...

That front end stays exclusive for the M3 models. E90 will get a facelift though with different kidney design, but the headlights stay the same like they are on the current E90 models.

Best regards, south

Ya know, kinda like the E36 M3 looked even more like a regular BMW sedan than the current iteration???!!??? I think that criticism is in full force at the moment, but we'll see how/if the tune changes once people start buying them.

I'm sure everyone has already stated this, but it looks so seriously strange to me. Maybe just because we've already seen the coupe varient, but it seriously looks like two cars that have been chopped together. The front is all round and smooth while the rear remains squared and boxy. Definitely not a cohesive design IMO. They really missed the boat on making a truly aggressive looking sedan.

I'm just really surprised BMW would merge two designs into one... would think that would go against their philosophy. At the very very least this beast should come with blacklines to help complete the transformation.

I agree with AMB, it looks strange in these pics. Looking forward to seeing it live. I think the car needs different tail lights now!

Great thread Mark!

The M3 coupe looks a lot better than the M3 sedan.... One can clearly tell M3 coupe apart from 3 series coupe... But Cant say the same for M3 sedan from regular 3 sedan.

Yeah, I dont feel this sedan, the back doors look like out of place!!! The line that cross the car's side look wayyyy to long, besides that, the tail lights looks outdated, I like the e92 tail lights better.

So you don't like the normal sedan either?
