. . . and the new V8 will fit in our engine bay should you get the wild hair to make that mod. I'm sure it won't be plug and play though. "Special" tools will no doubt be required.

The new M3 sounds pretty sweet. Like everyone said, we will need to see what it looks like and with hold our verdict until the final product arrives. All I can say is that BMW better get their act together when it comes to reliability. I won't put up with the same crap we have now.

As for the performance bar constantly being raised, the new M3 should be very competitive in it's class. That means C55, CLK55, Audi S4, Audi RS4, and the Porsche 911 (Normal version). I'm sure the price will be higher as well with the frickin Euro as high as it is. Now they just have to keep the weight down and it will be a super car.

20in wheels standard? Can't get much racing rubber in that size. Anyone have any idea of the lightest 20in wheels?

The information as stated before has come directly from a very good mag here called Motor. Saying this, there is no need for a ban or anything like that. We here in Australia might have more accessibility to this information as we have closer links to the UK car market.

This information has come DIRECTLY from the testing grounds in Europe and is as reported a E90 M3 V8, displacement yet to be confirmed. 20" Rims will be standard issue although I would say it would be more than likely to be 19" rims. Please feel free to read between the lines, you as well as anyone else does, knows that a lot of these "so called CONCRETE" stats will changed closer to the release date.

I believe it is always good to have this information up front and as soon as possible. When I find out about these things, I would like to keep this forum up to date before any of the other forums find out about it.

So please keep reading and please keep your ear to the ground to report anything that might have to do with the new M. ... All the best.

My concerns exactly.. If the car doesn't look as hideous as the new 3 series will (spy pics) I'll definately purchase it.

I hope..

I don't know why everyone is assuming the car will be a total pig. Sure, it will be bigger and have a larger engine, but remember, the e90 m5 isn't too much heavier than the old e39 and its engine is only marginally heavier despite the 2 extra cylendars(e90 v10 weighs 529lbs - ~2lbs heavier than the s62 v8). I have a feeling the car will probably be slightly heavier, but if the e39/90 comparison (e90 m5 4034lbs (cite: sports car magazine) e39 m5 4024lbs (cite: edmunds.com)) is anything to go by, not by much.

I think with every new generation ppl do become concerned in regards to the looks. Up until now, we have only really seen pictures in mags or photochop images. I think once ppl see the new M it will really grow on them, especially the numbers that it will crunch out.

I think the weight will be kept down. I am seeing some carbon fiber in the new 330. Dash appointments, very cool and a sign of more use of light weight material. The M3 in a V8 will be an alloy sleved engine and the weight should be no more the the cast I6. I think they may actually get the weight down a little. If the HP is up and the weight is down it will be one sweet performing car. To me this is just logic. These are my thoughs only. But the M3 is BMW's performance car so it makes sense in that respect.

Honestly 400 hp is not enought, bmw is going to have to have at least 450 to be ahead of the crowd, unless there going to make a CSL version with at least 460
