We can sense the anxiousness in many of our M3/M4-owners-to-be’s posts, as there have not been many updates on pricing/ordering/delivery for the 2015 M3 and M4.
We can now provide a better timeline of what to expect. As for pricing — base pricing has been determined and options/packaging and pricing for those are being finalized currently. They will be released late this month at earliest (February is a safe bet).
Important M3/M4 Dates:

End of January-February: Pricing-Ordering Guides released
February: Dealers receive allocations and order bank opens for submission of customer orders (after Pricing-Ordering Guides is released)

We’ve just learned the base pricing for the 2015 M3 (F80) and M4 (F82)!
2015 M3: $62,000
2015 M4: $64,200
These prices do not include the $925 destination/handling currently (always subject to change).
This represents a not insignificant increase in base price for the M3 compared to the predecessor E90 M3, but keep in mind that it now comes equipped with a carbon fiber roof and factory in inflation since the last M3 sedan.
We’ve shown you many still images of the BMW M4 (photos), M3 (photos) and M235i (photos), now watch how they were introduced to the world at today’s BMW Press Conference at the Detroit auto show.
We’ve shown you the Yas Marina Blue F80 M3 making its world debut here at the Detroit Show, now have a look at the F82 M4 in Black Sapphire Metallic and Austin Yellow Metallic. If forced to pick, my choice would be the M4 in Black Sapphire over the Austin Yellow; it looks sinister!
As with the M3, both M4s wear the optional M Carbon Ceramic Brakes and the beautiful double-bubble carbon fiber roof.
Deliveries will also begin in June, and pricing will be announced at a later time.
Along with the Austin Yellow BMW M4 coupe and Yas Marina Blue M3 sedan, there is also a third color model on hand – a Black Sapphire BMW M4 Coupe.
Here’s a first look.
Very first looks at the production BMW M3 (F80) and BMW M4 (F82) on display at their world debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show starting tomorrow!
The BMW M4 Coupe (F82) debuts tomorrow at the 2014 Detroit NAIAS autos how, but it’s already been spotted driving around the streets of downtown Detroit, in the exact color it will debut in – Austin Yellow.
Check out how the production M4 looks in public, fully revealed!
The upcoming F80 M3 and F82 M4 will be the first production BMWs to feature a carbon fiber (CFRP) driveshaft for lighter weight and reduction in rotating mass, which which in turn results in more dynamic powertrain response.
The properties of the extremely light yet impressively durable material CFRP have allowed the engineers to follow a fundamentally new approach in the manufacture of the drive shaft. Made from CFRP, this component feeds the engine
We have added even more comparison photos of the BMW M4 vs the Lexus RC F.
