An M3POST member shares his newly delivered Phoenix Yellow E92 M3 with us:
After 3.5 months of patiently waiting, my 2013 Phoenix Yellow/Fox Red Extended E92 M3 is here. As far as I know it is one of very very very few in the country. No pictures I have ever taken have done justice to show this color properly, something you must see in person to truly appreciate and give an honest opinion of.
I am one of the few who is completely obsessed with Phoenix Yellow (owner of an e46 M3 in Phoenix as well). When I ordered this car I was somewhat concerned with how it would look as I’ve seen photos of 6 series, 5 series and even regular 3 series in Phoenix and … CONTINUED

Black and Yellow – A nighttime photo shoot in Esquire’s Dakar Yellow E92 M3 coupe.
Nearly a month ago, we spotted the first non-black F82 M4 coupe prototype (in Silverstone) on the road (reposted below). We’ve just spied a Silverstone F82 M4 testing on the Nurburgring, wearing M Carbon Ceramic Brakes. This prototype doesn’t reveal any new physical details, but we do have a new technical detail to share.
We were recently told by a high-ranking BMW M official intimately familiar with M3/M4 development that the engine powering the M3/M4 will feature a nearly 8000 RPM redline. As we’ve reported all along, the M3/M4′s S55 engine will be an inline 6 cylinder with mutiple turbos, outputting around 100 lb-ft more torque and approximately same horsepowers as the current M3 (S65) engine. For comparison, the current M3 engine redlines at 8400 RPM. … CONTINUED
