The BMW M3 is widely acknowledged as one of the best sports cars in the world, but the interior is only so-so. To correct this German turner Zwickenpflug created a special version called the M3 Leather Edition.

M3Post member picks up the very first Laguna Seca Blue E92 M3. Yes, although this color is not offered in BMWs official offerings, it was a very unique and popular color for the E46 M3. So much so, that there is obviously demand for this color on the newest M3.

No matter how much people complain about each M3 getting heavier and more “fail”, its good to see it still a favorite! And for the 335i it’s very impressive considering a lot of people think the 1 series does the same for less money in a tighter package

Well here is Hartge’s kit. I can’t say I’m a fan of this at all! But you be the judge on this one. Hartge usually does an excellent job with BMWs…..

Picked up our 2009 M3 sedan last Saturday in Munich. I very happy to see that the space gray and red fox novillo leather combination worked well together, as we had not been able to see a good example of it in person (a couple of shots attached). Delivery at BMW Welt went well, the building is really impressive and since ours were the first delivery that morning, I had the place almost to myself for about an hour. As some others have noted, the technical briefings and the like are not very sophisticated, but the technology employed to make the show is pretty neat. Ours was one of two M3s being delivered that morning, along with an M5. It was really nice to have the keys handed over and … CONTINUED
Spent the long weekend down at the Ring. On Sunday the track was supposed to open at 0800 but due to heavy fog, it didnt open until around 1300. I was only able to get one lap in due to the large number of people who turned up. I found out real quick that the PS2s are no good on a partially wet track and had to turn down my aggressiveness in some of the corners (basically where ever the track was shaded, it was wet and slippery). Monday was much of the same, parts of the track was still damp, took it easy. Enjoy the videos. See you at the track next year!

EDIT: Added more pics. One of the giant press machine and the press molds, another one that shows the robots, an assembly line shot, and a final “marriage” shot.
Just got back from a trip to the Regensburg BMW Plant. I wanted to do a review with some pictures and facts. Overall, the tour was excellent and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is in the area or who ever visits Bavaria. The tour lasts about 2.5 hours, and it is relatively easy to schedule a time with BMW via email. It was awesome to see exactly how BMW makes our cars, and I am definitely more appreciative of my car now after seeing how it was brought to life. The amount of robots and people that are employed, … CONTINUED
Hi guys – I am not an owner…. yet. I have a Z4M Coupe at this time. I did BMWs Fascination I & II Courses in the M3. BMW Driver Training is a great learning experience. I have done a number of their courses and I have become a much better driver. I specially recommend their Winter Driving Course for everyone!!
My take (& this is just my opinion) on the M3. By the way – this forum is first rate and my opinions are quite similar to what has already been expressed by many.
The noise is FANTASTIC! The S65 engine…. I am in love!
The M-DCT is a great piece of kit. I have a Z4M Coupe 6MT at this time. I will not hesitate and I will get the M-DCT. … CONTINUED
