This color combo is going to look great.

White looks great! I'd like to see how it looks in all the other colors, but red is not the way to go IMO. Gray interior is too bland.......maybe a two-tone interior would spice things up. And this is probably the first sports car to not have a coolant temp gauge...........

Apparently, the "Power" button isn't going to really affect actual hp output like it does on the M5 and M6, but it'll act like the "sport" button on previous M3s, with a more spontaneous throttle response and reduced steering assist.

Love that car! I agree: it looks hot in white, not something I'd normally say. I'm drooling... and thinking it should be my next car.

So, any idea on pricing? Are we talking $65K - $70K range here?

I thought it'd be around $55k. I remember seeing a thread with pricing a while back.

That was C&D May issue which says $55k.

I think that number was even stated in the recent C&D but IMO, it's wishful thinking. Remember what the car mags were expecting the Audi RS4 to go for? It was about the same $55K estimate and it turned out to be $66,000 base price ($71K with the Premium Package), not that there is a connection between the guessing of car mags but there could be a similar connection in that the RS4 and the E92/E90 M3 is in performance competition with the RS4 so you'd expect pricing to be about the same. Consider too that a loaded, and I mean a "checked all the boxes" E92 335i lists for $56,320 including delivery. I know it's totally loaded but I think that BMW AG would want to keep some price distance between the two.

If the E90 M3 turns out to be priced at $55K, I'm going to place my order.

I think there was overlap between the old 330ci and M3.........if you loaded the 330ci up to the gills it'd top out at like $52k, whereas the M3 started at about $48,000. Of course, you had to pay extra for stuff that was standard on the 330ci (H/K sound, xenon, moonroof, power seats). I remember my "built" M3 on the BMW site was in the mid $54k range, with no premium or power seats.

As for weight, it's up about <200 lbs, but the new engine should have no issue dealing with that. It's a tad porkier than I'd like to see, but I guess it is a luxury car on one side so it will be a tad heavy.
