This latest round of spyphotos on M3Post seem to confirm that the E90 M3 Sedan will get the tail-light facelift that the standard E90 Sedan is recieving. This is sure to be controversial as this is the first year the M3 has been out there and is already seeing a change in body design. I would be upset too.

In the latest spy pictures of the E90 Facelift are clues that the L shaped notched taillights may make an appearance on the E90 after all….
With the launch of the E93 M3 in the UK, BMW has decided to put out a set of beautiful wallpapers of the car in Melbourne Red
The folks at IND are hard at work on building up the White BMW M3 and here is a spectacular photoshoot of the car as it stands now.
The all-new E92 BMW M3 Coupe may have just recently hit the U.S. market, but that car has actually been on the Australian market for six months now. And, according to the initial sales report, the new car is twice as popular as the previous generation E46 M3 Coupe in the land of Oz.
BMW has announced that it has sold 263 M3 Coupes during the first six months the car has been on the market in Australia, compared to just 132 examples of the E46 M3 Coupe during its first six months on the market.
Not exactly my cup of tea, but regardless…
HAMANN has just released a tuning package for the V8-powered BMW M3 Coupe E92 that incorporates a series of mechanical and comsetic upgrades. While most of us would be easily satisfied with the standard M3s 420 Hp, HAMANN saw it fit to offer two different engine kits. The first tuning package increases the 4.0-liter V8s output to 435 Hp and delivers an additional 25 Nm of torque (series: 400 Nm) on the crank shaft. With the removal of the speed limiter, the M3 can go up to a top speed of 300 km/h or 187 mph.
The second kit called Sportkit HM/M +35 rises output to 455 Hp and toque to … CONTINUED
Well for all the Dinan lovers and haters here is a link on youtube from M5board talking about a future stroker V8 for the M3 that is basically the M5/M6 stroker V10 with 2 cylinders knocked off.
As another tidbit, check out the vids from M5board and the development of the CAI for the V10, an impressive amount of effort and true "design" work to make it breathe better. A lot of effort for 20 hp but it shows what work it takes to develop a product like this. Performance without sacrifice.
First post community-manager:
We wanted to allow you getting an idea of the experience the new M-DCT with Drivelogic provides as early as possible, hence the mods of the MPW in advance had the opportunity of a co-drive on the test track.
Let me add a comment to the mentioned "torque oversteer".
Simplified this means: When performing an upshift, the engines still revving too high for the next ratio.
In case of a quite fast clutch-in (M-DCT is able to do so), the engine gets decelerated and thus stored energy is set free, this means an additional moment to the drive train, the car makes a feelable and positive jerk forwards. This also means a … CONTINUED
This was originally being updated in another thread but I wanted to get some additional opinions so I am posting this here. Sorry if its the wrong section.
