Insideline undertakes this fascinating direct head-to-head comparison of the iconic 1986 E30 M3 against a 2010 E92 M3. What has gone forwards (or perhaps backwards) for the M3 in the 25 years spanning these two cars? See for yourself inside.
Here are some of the most detailed F10 M5 photos yet, including clear views of the likely production interior, wheels, side mirrors, trunk spoiler and other features. Rarely has the car been photographed parked and so up close. Only the few strips of camouflage tape remains. The 2012 M5 is expected to premier at the 2011 Frankfurt IAA autoshow in September 2011.

We bring you the first video of the F30 / F31 3-series Touring prototype on the streets of Germany. Most of the car is still clad in heavy camouflage, but as with the F30 sedan spy photos so far, shape, size, and proportions can be gleamed from these early spy photos/videos.
According to our BMW Roadmap, the next generation 3-series sedan and touring are expected sometime in 2012. Several variants are expected of the next gen 3-series, including sedan, coupe, touring, GT version, and of course the M3.
