Here are the aggregated E90 and E92 M3 sedan and coupe production stats for North America.
You can see the breakdown by manual, DCT, colors, competition package, and moonroof/navigation options.
The E93 M3 convertible is also included, but its production has not yet ended, so its numbers are not yet final.
Check out this unique “Superman Combo” M6 Gran Coupe featuring San Marino Blue exterior and Sakhir Orange interior.
It has been lowered on H&R springs.
We have posted even more technical details on the 2014 M5 and M6 Competition Package, including actual changes in spring rates, damping rates, stabilizer rates, steering ratios, torque/power output, and other details.
The F82 M4 and F80 M3 prototypes have now shed a significant amount of camouflage, revealing more than ever.
In the collection of photos and videos below you’ll see a Frozen White M3, Alpine White M3, and a silver M4 coupe. By dropping some of their camouflage and being fitted with more final equipment/parts, we can now see (for the first time or better than before):

Photos from an M3 / BMW enthusiast group’s midnight run into Times Square.
These F80 M3 prototype car specs from VIN checks undertaken a few months back [see original story on s55 engine specs] reveal a potential new exclusive BMW M color coming for the upcoming M3 and M4.
One of the M3 prototypes was spec’d in Yas Marina Blue (named after the Yas Marina Circuit, home of the Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix, and where BMW recently held its M6 M Power Experience for customers). However, as we’ve yet to spot any M3 or M4 prototypes wearing a … CONTINUED
Here is a set of photos of the most revealing M4 prototype yet, together with a great video of the M4 being tested hard at the Nurburgring.
Geek out with us and follow this analysis by a BIMMERPOST member in which he predicts the upcoming F80 M3 and F82 M4 s55 engine RPM redline, by way of a technical sound analysis.
He began testing a couple of dyno recordings and fairly quickly found an E92 M3 video and V12 Aston with 6800 rpm redline. He recorded the sounds (just from crappy Youtube videos) and then did a Fourier transform to get the spectral content. E92 M3 frequency peak at redline should be 560 … CONTINUED
Check out this great M3 build by ONEighty, based on a limited edition Frozen White Edition E92 M3 coupe.
Have a look at the best videos yet of the 2014 F80 M3 undergoing track testing at the Nurburgring. Why are they the best yet? Because they are being pushed to the limits, which has been rare in the videos we’ve seen prior to this.
Listen to that S55 engine!
BMW M4 Concept Car will be unveiled at Pebble Beach in August.
M4 is more the car to convince seeing as it dispenses with history in order to forge a new beginning with a new icon.
The car will be unveiled at Pebble Beach and then flown back to Germany where it will be displayed at the IAA in Frankfurt in September.
Both M3 and M4 are being presented at the NAIAS in Detroit along with the production BMW X4.
While we were in Portugal for the 4 Series Coupe launch, we also had a first look and drive of the M5 and M6 with Competition Package [full details]. We’ll be sharing some first drive thoughts soon, but for now, have a look and listen at the cars in action. None of the cars in the photos are equipped with the 20″ Competition Package wheels, but you can see them in action in the videos below.
For those not familiar with the M5/M6 Competition Package, it … CONTINUED
This latest interview with BMW M CEO Dr. Friedrich Nitschke reveals some interesting things about the upcoming F80 M3 and F82 M4, most importantly their reveal dates – at the Detroit 2014 show in January 2014.
Catch the rest inside.
It appears that the F80 M3 has advanced to the final evaluation phase. The F80 has dropped some camouflage, added LED lights, and now features a trunk spoiler lip.
It’s now clear that the F80 M3 Sedan shares the same front end as the F82 M4 Coupe and each will feature an aggressive M styled front bumper with the now exposed air curtains, LED headlights and double slat grilles with M3/M4 badge. Late last year we put together a M4 render (see below) which were very … CONTINUED
