The question is will it have character like the 97 M3 and 03 M3. The best ones ever made
William Chong Jan 22, 2013
M5 rear, M5 rims, M4 side, M1 bumper, and worst of all E90 side mirrors. As fake as it gets.
William Chong Jan 22, 2013
It's not leaked guys. This is just a rendering.
Jordan Blake Bernard McIver Jan 22, 2013
It better be manual.
Matt Altenburg Jan 22, 2013
Who cares
Sam Harris Jan 22, 2013
I just looked at the numbers of the v8 that what is the last gen M3. The I6 that's being put in the new m3 is an absolute monster. I'm glad the I6 is Back, it's going to put the last gen m3 to shame.
Sam Harris Jan 22, 2013
I never thought that the v8 belonged in the E92.
Jeffrey Frank Jan 22, 2013
I love my N54 and in a more nimble chassis with more boost it'd be even better.
Luke Purdy Jan 22, 2013
Going back to traditional roots with an I6.... I have no problem with this
Ashton Summers Jan 22, 2013
Just don't pipe exhaust through the speakers. It's just weird.
Jorge Luis Fernandez Jan 22, 2013
@marcus...considering the fact that you have to insult someone to get your point across your not that bright of a person....anyway I've never been a fan of turbos I love a big engine that can create power without forced induction..it's my opinion bud
Marcus Espineta Jan 22, 2013
@jorge you are an idiot....enough said
Marcus Espineta Jan 22, 2013
The i6 tt is def better than the v8....better power to weight and mpg. Plus I love the sound of a blow off valve!!!! What cars other than c63 amg and s5 whats its competition?
Daniel Eads Jan 22, 2013
I'm actually glad they went back to the l6 because it sets it apart from the others in the segment.
Petro Maalouf Jan 22, 2013
Will always be one of the best in its category with the c63 and the rs5
Lou Guerrero Jan 22, 2013
Overall balance is what makes a good M car.
Lou Guerrero Jan 22, 2013
Shane, roots for an M3 is a high strung 4 cylinder.
Aaron Crisp Jan 22, 2013
My brothers old 3 series had a inline 6 and that thing could really whip around. I was surprised.
Shane Carroll Jan 22, 2013
BMW was using the I6 for years before they even considered the V8, it's not downsizing it's returning to the car's roots. I6s are torquey little jokers, no complaints here
David Guerrero Jan 22, 2013
Oh man, I really do hope toyota actually tries to join with BMW to make the supra using the M3 base and engine.
Matt Paunicka Jan 22, 2013
Wow, I'm loving the torque. Such an improvement. That was the biggest weak point to me in the current M3. Also now that it is already turbocharged, aftermarket tuning will be cheaper and easier. I'm digging this M3.
Joe Lamouk Jan 22, 2013
The E92 was just an exception (as well as the M5 E60 or the old M6), BMW went back to a 6 cyl. engine, like on the E46 and the E36. Maybe someday they'll even use only 4 cylinders, just like on the E30.
Jacob Lerklint Jan 22, 2013
@Jorge Wrong, its a straight six not a v6
David Eslava Jan 22, 2013
Jorge I was about to say the same. I feel like V12's/10's/8's will be anecdotes anytime soon. It's really sad.
Jorge Luis Fernandez Jan 22, 2013
Wow I'm really hating all these down sizings m6 is now a v8 n now this v8 car using a v6 I know they have more power but I'm now a big fan of the down sizing at all
Scuttle Buttocks Jan 22, 2013
Awesome
Rick Ross Jan 27, 2013
Lol @ Elvis ford.
Lucas Raggio Jan 26, 2013
I like it. Wish it still had a v8 though
Travis Bourdeau Jan 23, 2013
I like it!!!!
Jacob Lerklint Jan 23, 2013
@ray. I6 not v6
Elvis Ford Jan 23, 2013
Trash
Ray Moreno Jan 23, 2013
No more v8 :c guess its return to the v6 for the m3. I don't know about those side ducts they look a little toooo "busy" for me. I'll reserve my judgment for the M4 though cant wait for that.
Darryle Moody Jan 23, 2013
If you look at the hood and the PowerDome and flanking extractors, the light appears not real. And the play on light across the hood looks disingenuous at the very least. Not real people, nothing to see so move along.
William Chong Jan 22, 2013
M5 rear, M5 rims, M4 side, M1 bumper, and worst of all E90 side mirrors. As fake as it gets.
William Chong Jan 22, 2013
It's not leaked guys. This is just a rendering.
Aislin Cooper Jan 22, 2013
I wish it had more of an M5 front bumper as opposed to the 1M bumper
Serge Pankratov Jan 22, 2013
I honestly think the best looking M3 is the E92. The E46 is more fun to drive imo, but looks and power, the E92 is superior. And i understand that with the new M3 going TT on a I6 motor will produce more torque and all, im just anti turbo. Go figure.
Seamus Crowe Jan 22, 2013
I love the m3 but I don't know what BMW was thinking with the connecting kidney grilles and headlights.
Thomas Moore Jan 22, 2013
Can't wait to see the M4
John Alverez Jan 22, 2013
Great looking car.
Bhavin Amin Jan 22, 2013
So the coupe version will be called M4? I really don't like the sedan look
David Guerrero Jan 22, 2013
Jack you're stupid, it is called opinion. This M3 is alright. E30 is was better looking.
Jason Brown Jan 22, 2013
The only not boring thing about this car is the color. Do something interesting BMW, innovate again...
Jack Sittauer Jan 22, 2013
Dan is stupid, this is the best looking m3 since the e30
Jordan Nishida Jan 22, 2013
Best looking new M3.
William Downs Jan 22, 2013
Friend sold his S2K to buy an E92 M3, not even a yr later he sold it to get another S2K, said it wasn't as good as people said it was around a track, he also had a lot of work in his S2K... but only BMW I would ever buy is a E46 m3.. everything else they make just looks Boring to me
Matt Piccolo Jan 22, 2013
Damn, that looks so flippen good! Damn, good job BMW!
Aiden Bass Jan 22, 2013
For the money, I'd get two E46's... Think about that....
James Salaba Jan 22, 2013
Another ugly BMW! They will never built anything better then e46 m3!
Tanton Stoneman Jan 22, 2013
I like it better than the normal 3-Series
Harrison Trapnell Jan 22, 2013
BMW are now better than Audi.
Jared Oteri Jan 22, 2013
M3 badge in the grill should of been saved for the m4 cause the m6 has it but I don't think the m6 gc does....... Or does it? Lol fuck
Muni Singh Bahra Jan 22, 2013
E36 M3 all the way :)
Luke Purdy Jan 22, 2013
@Serge but this will absolutely smoke the current m3. Finally it has some torque
Alex Bouckley Jan 22, 2013
I actual like the 1M style front end. It looks nice
Janak Solanki Jan 22, 2013
I have to agree with u guys on the E46 looked really good. This one does too, but I doesn't blow me away.
Scuttle Buttocks Jan 22, 2013
@David yea I know... Just that the normal 4 series looks like an M3, and a normal 3 series doesn't look like any of them, well, the 4 series already looks like an M and yea
Adam Wieland Jan 22, 2013
Really liking this but have to agree that the E46 is the best one as well as the E36 but nonetheless this looks great and I'm sure it will still be a great drivers car
Kyle Rawn Jan 22, 2013
For sure Dan. E46 was the best.
Borphan Limthong Jan 22, 2013
Boring
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 22, 2013
Looks the same like the old ones what's really new?
Shane Carroll Jan 22, 2013
Like it so far, lemme see it in white or gray
Serge Pankratov Jan 22, 2013
Ehh.. I like the E92 better. This stylings a bit weird for me.. And no more v8 :(
Elias Harb Jan 22, 2013
Marry me
Colby Church Jan 22, 2013
It's not too bad, I would drive it. However I'm not crazy about it in any fashion.
Mati Araujo Jan 22, 2013
So f***in awesome
Pablo Herasme Jan 22, 2013
I think this is a cleaner design than the M5
Dylan Bruder Jan 22, 2013
They finally changed the m bumper that said I'm still not a fan
David Gray Jan 22, 2013
VVVV That's because the 4-Series is the coupe variant of the 3-Series now
Scuttle Buttocks Jan 22, 2013
Looks a lot like the 4 series... In a good way.
Cezary Koral Jan 22, 2013
Agreed @carlos, if anything Lexus copied BMW And it does look sexy And finally it has some torque
Mike Carbaugh Jan 22, 2013
Don't like the color but the styling looks great
Carlos Ernesto Garcia Jan 22, 2013
@ Justin, since this is based off of the current 3-series and the previous M3, which both came out before most of Lexus' new designs this is not a copy of Lexus
Justin Johnson Jan 22, 2013
Somebody copied Lexus :(
Paul Gladman Jan 22, 2013
BEST LOOKIN M3 EVER!!!!!!
Description: Other advanced features we already know about include lightweight aluminum body parts, BMW M Carbon Ceramic brakes, and a unique aerodynamics kit. More details will doubtless surface as we get closer ...

Hell yeah!
Pablo Herasme Jan 22, 2013
Ceramic Brakes!, Light wieght Aluminum parts! Yup I'm getting onr
Justin Johnson Jan 22, 2013
Stock? Wow!
Justin Johnson Jan 22, 2013
Stock
Lucas Raggio Jan 26, 2013
I like it
Elvis Ford Jan 23, 2013
Rubbish
Darryle Moody Jan 23, 2013
There is nothing new here either. The tradition of quad pipes almost centered that started with the E36/7 m Roadster is not done very well.
Lee Oleinick Jan 23, 2013
Another yawner from the folks @ BMW
Zaire Wilkins Jan 23, 2013
Those tailights just look updated from the last gen
William Chong Jan 22, 2013
This is just a rendering. M5 rear, M5 rims, M4 side, M1 bumper, and worst of all E90 side mirrors. As fake as it gets.
Aislin Cooper Jan 22, 2013
Wish it had the central quad exhaust instead
Carter Fellows Jan 22, 2013
The back looks ode identical to the M5
John Alverez Jan 22, 2013
This car looks amazing. Brilliant job
Jon Ashley Jan 22, 2013
nothing out of the ordinary, thats for sure. But, it looks great. Actually better than the e90 in my opinion.
Carlos Ernesto Garcia Jan 22, 2013
Yea why isn't the exhaust where it was on the e46 and e90?
Alex Renaud Jan 22, 2013
And I miss the more inboard placement of the dual exhaust from the E46 M3.
Austin J. Bower Jan 22, 2013
Brilliant
Alex Renaud Jan 22, 2013
I like how a line carries from the tail light all the way to the vent on the quarter panel, creating a scallop through the doors. But I do not like the front.
Jordan Nishida Jan 22, 2013
Want one so badly.
Alex Renaud Jan 22, 2013
@ Luke: Give the guy a break. The tail lights on the current 3, 5, 6 GC, and 7 series resemble each other quite a bit (especially at first glance).
John Patten Jan 22, 2013
MPOWER!
Puneet Dass Jan 22, 2013
That looks great. Bmw never goes wrong with their 3 series
Matt Piccolo Jan 22, 2013
Damn, looks awesome! Love this!
Luke Purdy Jan 22, 2013
@Mark. Really mark? Really?
Tj Marten Jan 22, 2013
I actually like the side vents
captdewalt Jan 22, 2013
they finally made the m3 sedan look right vs being lame compared to the coupe
Paul Gladman Jan 22, 2013
i hated the looks of the E92 sedan, even as a sedan it looks much better than the E92 coupe. i cant wait to see what the M4 looks like
Drew Humphrey Jan 22, 2013
Sweet
Jay Kolvenbag Jan 22, 2013
Prefer the old side vents, these look awful
Mark Fei Ling Jan 22, 2013
is that M5 or M3???
Blaise Harned Jan 22, 2013
I know the coupe will look very similar, but was the sedan the only one that leaked?
Nelson Alexander Jan 22, 2013
Sweeeeeeeet
Tim Ranahan Jan 22, 2013
Nice update by designers, while still retaining traditional looks. Beautiful.
Justin Johnson Jan 22, 2013
That is gorgeous
Chris Redfield Jan 22, 2013
This is so good looking for the sedan
Paul Gladman Jan 22, 2013
woooow i love it
Rob Clark Jan 22, 2013
I'd take this gen M3 over the new one because it looks better.
Matt Piccolo Jan 22, 2013
I'd take this gen (before the new one) just bec I love the high revving v8! It sounds beautiful!
Aiden Bass Jan 22, 2013
Carbuzz put up a pic of an E46 M3!!
Luke Purdy Jan 22, 2013
Why do people want the current m3 just because it has a v8?
Quinn Rogers Jan 22, 2013
This would get blown away if it raced the new m3
Lou Guerrero Jan 22, 2013
This is already a rare car. Only made for 2 years. E90>E92
Sasa Jungic Jan 22, 2013
I just hope it's manual and that it sounds as good as E92.. Maybe a bit of E46 sound!
Bala Uncc Jan 22, 2013
Some people always like the previous gen, not sure why. We will hear the same when the next one gets released after few years
Serge Pankratov Jan 22, 2013
Me too! N/A V8... Nothing like it
Dylan Bruder Jan 22, 2013
I'd prefer this one if I had to pick
Derek Soanes Jan 24, 2013
@elvis Did you pull that money out of your ass to buy the gt500
Nick Sti Jan 23, 2013
Elvis seems like a troll based on his previous comments. He's hating pretty much everything. Anyways, this and the E46 are my favorite generations of the M3
Zaire Wilkins Jan 23, 2013
Cars like the ZL1 and GT500 im not impressed by if i happen to see one
Redge Diakité Jan 23, 2013
@Elvis your car is garbage compared to this even if you say "my car goes 200mph or it accelerates faster" it won't handle like the M3 ;)
Elvis Ford Jan 23, 2013
Just a 12 gt500. That's all
Chris Kuyumdzhyan Jan 23, 2013
@Elvis so what amazing car do you drive?
Elvis Ford Jan 23, 2013
Garbage
Janak Solanki Jan 22, 2013
Love the 4 doors
Janak Solanki Jan 23, 2013
I like the new front end. Looks wider and more focused.
Jackson Michael Jan 22, 2013
Bahahahaha
AJ Smart Jan 22, 2013
@Stephen mean but hilarious
William Downs Jan 22, 2013
Hahahahsh omg Stephen your killing me
Stephen Tyler Learn Jan 22, 2013
Shaniqua your just saying that because you're the one who sat on it
Rob Clark Jan 22, 2013
One of BMWs worse designs ever; the new 3-series, a face only its mother could love.
Taylor Garry Jan 22, 2013
Haha thats a word. Im drunk, disregard
Taylor Garry Jan 22, 2013
You just said stupidest. Please think about that for a second
Shaniqua Latisha Jan 22, 2013
Stephen that is one of the stupidest comments i have ever heard in my life
Benjamin Hardaway Jan 22, 2013
Lol I agree with Stephen too
Jordan Nishida Jan 22, 2013
Never liked the new 3 series.
William Downs Jan 22, 2013
Lmao so true stephen. Hate the new front end design looks stupid to me
Stephen Tyler Learn Jan 22, 2013
It looks like an extremely fat bitch sat on the hood of an e90 and now it's all squished
Redge Diakité Jan 22, 2013
Look at it like It's frowning to you you'll see It's beautiful ;)
Austin Bride Jan 22, 2013
Front doesn't match the sides correctly.
