Not seen anything official and I was in my dealers last week and they said bmw haven't announced anything officially to them yet - but that the mags would have it first anyway.

Every magazine I'm reading now that mentions the next gen m3 is saying 400 or 405bhp V8.

Yeah me too, there is heaps of speculation out there on what the final figures will or wont be. Have heard as high as 444bhp as well, if it was that much, the CSL would be something to behold......

Time will tell. Thanks for the update BigGrin and keep us posted.
Adam.

newbie so here goes...i talked to the owner of my dealer at pentagon car sales in kaiserslautern, germany and he says the v8 in the upcoming m3 ( due out mid to late 2007 ) will be similar to the previous m5 v8 so output around 400 hp. a great webiste to see new german stuff is autobild.de a german magazine's website with lotsa cool pics...all in german but most can muddle through..have fun !!!

G'Day atomicdoc, thanks for the update and thanks also for the link, great to have you onboard. I agree Director......... that the new M should have in around the 450HP mark, it has to be reliable and ready to go. BMWAG should learn from the failures of the S54 and make this engine sing. If BMWAG are wanting to produce more HP to catch the other German boys, why not put something that is going to stay in front for a long while. 450HP Stock M, imagine the CSL.

Here is something for you all to chew on......

If the M is not due till 2007, do you think that BMW will take the time to perfect the E90M's new engine, as in the all new 4.0 or do you think they will relook at the 4.4 and tune it accordingly. A 4.4 IMHO will certainly produce 400HP easily and will do it in a reliable fashion too, something the S54 hasn't achieved especailly in the earlier models. If the competition prior to release of the new M achieves more HP, Im sure that MSport will be more prone to putting out more HP to match.

So far we have been looking at the current HP of other cars to compete against them M, Im sure the HP battle will continue well into the future and MSport need to counter punch this prior to the release date. Hence I believe MSport will go for the bigger stroker, the 4.4.

Part of ///M philosophy is to have an output of no less than 100hp per liter. If they do opt for the 4.4, the new ///M must have at least 440hp. I really think they will design a 4.0 with 400-425hp.

I own a March 2001 build M3 and have had 0 issues with reliability.

I see your point but at 4.4 I still think they could squeeze that sort of HP out of it easily, saying that, if they went with a CSL, the could go as hight as 480HP and still have the M5 as the powerhorse/benchmark. Makes sense to me.

Also great to hear that you have had 0 issues, you are one of few and far between. There should be / will be a lot more of those types of stories in the E90M.

A great number of reliable ///M3 engines are out there, you just don't hear about them. People don't type on message boards about the problems they don't have, only about the problems they do.

I think ///M did a great job with the S54.
