Eh ... which AMG and Porsche crowd? The year 1999 crowd? Or the year 2000? 0-60 in under 5, give me a break, stop being so pathetic.

The new 997 can do low 4s and 12 second 1/4 miles, and that's not neven the 997s. The C51 (not even a Z06) is evern faster. AMG? ROFL, don't kid yourself. Unless that M can do 0-60 in 4 seconds or less and pack more torque than a tank, you can't catch an AMG.

The new E90 M3 was caught testing around the world famous Nurburgring late last month with a big thumping V8 under its hood. The new configuration is rumored to output the Magical Figures of 300Kw or 402HP in the old money.

Sources also confirm that the M3 will stay as a RWD, speed limited to 250Km/h / 155MPH and driven thru the current M5's new 7 Speed SMGIII box and wait for it............. a totally reworked Six Speed Manual. Meaning the debate between the SMG Boys and the Manual Lads can and will continue for years to come.

The M3 with its V8 engine (size still unconfirmed) is rumored to hit the 60/100 mark in under 5 putting it firmly in the sites of the AMG and Porsche crowd. To add further stability to the car, the engine has now been set back further in the frame to provide the car with a mid engine feel effectively giving better over all weight distribution. There is also talk of tweaking certain parts of the new E90 M3 with 20 inch rims as standard, active steering, a meatier brake package and active roll stability which will work in well with DSC, TC & LC.

Sounds like BMW MSport have certainly answered the call that we had hoped, this is certainly the start of a massive future for the new E90 M3.

Trust me when I say............... there is more to come.

The 997 has 239kw/320hp and 997s has 261kw/355hp so if the M3 gets 300kw/400hp it shouldn't be as outragous as you claim even considering a likely weight increase. It will easily beat the current C55/CLK55/SLK55 some of which will be changed about the same time the M3 shows up, stats on those are not really known yet but they will also get a weight increase being a mercedes.

Easily beat the current C55/CLK55/SLK55? I'm not going to argue with you right now, I'll let the actual comparisons speak for themselves when they come out.

Its not even out yet...and 2006....its too premature....and especially with a new engine design....I believe the current s54 engine was introduced in 2000 or 2001...and still they have issues....so..i take it R&D will start on a new engine after a year or so...6 years ...thats just too soon...lets expect it in 2007...as a 2008 model...BMW is too involved in redesigning their other models that a 2007 M3 is just too early...ALSO, you have to see the new 3 to expect the foundation for the M3..ewwwwww.

and in order to compete with the big jerry mobiles....0-60 must be around 4 to 4.3 seconds....also, watch a sticker price JUMP....60K...more like 75K...my expectations...

997 beats the C6 Vett in the 1/4 by a few hundreds of a sec...they were both in the 12's....

Take the Vett for an example... It's about 3300 pounds with a 400hp engine..
Next gen M would easily out weight the current ones...now do the math.

dammit, if they make the E90 even heavier than the E46 I will be pi$$ed. They need to try and at least get it back down to E36 weight levels.
