As a followup to their F80 M3 Dyno and Weight, EAS had an opportunity to once again weigh another M3 for comparison. Racewerkz Engineering swung by their shop yesterday with their new Mineral White F80 M3 & Alpine White F82 M4. Naturally, the first order of business was to see how the M4 would do on the in-house Dynojet dyno.
Just like the Yas Marina Blue M3 dynoed last week, this Alpine White M4 further proved that BMW has seriously underrated the F8X’s horsepower … CONTINUED
Check out these F80 M3 dyno and weight figures from EAS.
Here’s what we’ve all been waiting for! This being the first F80 at EAS’s facility, forum member tightie decided to inspect this Yas Marina Blue M3 on a lift, weigh it on the scales and strap it to the dyno.
On the scales, this F80 M3 weighed in at 3590 lbs (pounds) with a nearly 50/50 weight distribution. The dyno numbers are what really impressed us, though. BMW claims this motor makes 425hp … CONTINUED

Some members have asked whether the new manual transmission retains the same rubbery shift … CONTINUED

BMW and GoPro have teamed up to integrate the GoPro App with ConnectedDrive BMW cars. A GoPro camera may now be configured and controlled using BMW’s iDrive controller and screen. Take a ride with Justin Bell as he takes the barnd-new BMW M4 out for laps and finds the entire lineage of BMW M3 performance cars.
Here is a translated version of some of the highlights of Sport Auto review of the F80 M3 and F82 M4.
No rpm, no sound and irritating turbo lag? By corner 9 and 11 all the concerns of the traditionalist have disappeared. Lightfooted the M3 storms through the Samsung corner and up the hill.
5600, 6600, 7600rpm, the new engine doesn’t reach the high 8300rpm limit of the old V8. But for a turbo it revs astonishingly high. … CONTINUED
