    An RS4 will still spank it's arse 9 days out of 10 on our roads. Betcha. ;)

    P.S. Whatever happened to BMW's proposed new naming scheme?

    3 Series = Saloon.
    4 Series = Coupe. :confused:

    The E92 M3 looks fantastic, there are more pics inside and out here http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=49988

    V8, this thing will have some serious punch to it.

    Current 3 series designations: E90 Sedan, E91 Wagon, E92 Coupe, E93 Cabrio :)

    On the waiting list for the convertible, not that we've actually seen that yet! Looking good so far, though. Will be going SMG again, of course.

    Much better pic's, thanking you muchly. ;)

    Oh, not those ones... ;) there was talk a couple of years ago that the 3 Series Coupe was going to be called the 4 Series, and that the M3 would be the saloon car variant, whilst the M4 would be the Coupe version.

    That's puzzling too, I'd have thought that BMW would've dropped SMG for their Dual Clutch system a'la DSG for their upcoming M Models and revisions? :confused:

    I think it looks alright. I'll probably have to see one in person to really form an opinion, but at first glance, I like the old style a little better.

    As I designed this car i must say that it is nice, but i am a bit disappointed, CAR magazine an mockups of it with the rear number plate on the bumper and it looked super awesome..... the back of this is a bit too fussy for my liking. Apart from that it is superb especially the front.... while im here, theyve finally put an interior in the lotus europa s, its not a piece of crap anymore. :)


    SHOULD HAVE LOOKED LIKE THIS
