Whoa!!! That's awesome info. Thanks for sharing...

pseto 08-17-2006 01:25 PM

Only $10k more than e92 coupe; that's not as bad as I thought it would be.

LeMansX5 08-17-2006 02:04 PM

So how do you like the wheels and the exhaust?

Visually the wheels look good but I'd definitely won't be happy cleaning them...

SANguru 08-17-2006 02:41 PM

crazy.. 65K-70K M3's with the works..Wonder if there's a gas guzzler tax too!

If BMW can sneak the M3 in 22.5 MPG combined or better with a 400+HP V8, it would be an incredible engineering feat. I wish they were that good, but I don't think so. I'm heading to the office after 6 days off for vacation. Screw all the unanswered emails and phone calls - I'm going to sit at my desk and work up an RS4/M3 cost comparison.

I can't wait to see the outcomes of their head to head competitions which will undoubtably fill a couple of months worth of car magazines.

SANguru 08-17-2006 03:17 PM

prelimary figures are like 12/18mpg from what I have read in other boards. I have a feeling that the M3 is going to have a tough match against the RS4's.

I love the exhaust, but too many spokes on the wheels. Its surprising that the Logic7 is an option but on the e92 its standard.

AzNMpower32 08-17-2006 04:52 PM

I'm just relieved there's a NC 6MT option! Those wheels are.........um, okay. Could be better/bolder.

DINANM3 08-17-2006 05:16 PM

Is this info definate of still up in the air. And are those wheels in the picture 18s or the optional 19s. I like them but to many spokes. Im not cleaning that shit. They should have done wheels like the M6. Plus i though the M3 was gonna look more agressive than that. And whats the big deal about the exaust it looks identical the the E46 whats the surprise there? Either way im buying it just for the engine basically. And im going with the 7 speed smg. Does anyone know what country these spy pics were taken and a definate date when this thing is coming to the USA Dealers so i can actually F#@king buy one. Come on already whats the hold up.

Kewl X5 08-17-2006 05:51 PM

Also posted, 418 hp and around 309 lb/ft torque for the 4.0L V8.


Will keep the E46 M3 for now....fast enough for me and it still gets around 22 mpg!!

I believe the 418 is bhp which will equate to 410HP still not bad. :thumbup:

Wow, 12/18... that's some guzzling! My E39 M5 is rated at 14/21, and probably weighs at least 400 lbs more than the M3 will weigh, has almost the same power and a lot more torque. What gives?

Ah, one possible explanation is if any changes were made to EPA testing procedures as it has been rumored... http://www.treehugger.com/files/2005...hanging_wa.php
... more agressive driving, more AC blasting, etc.

TQ2K 08-18-2006 10:40 AM

Sunil/Josh or others, anyone know if an M3/M4 sedan will be released?

JCL 08-18-2006 04:05 PM

I think you will find that the EPA test procedures have not changed.

The test in use now has been around for decades, and for the last twenty years or so has had an arbitrary 'fudge factor' applied to make it more realistic (22% reduction in EPA raw highway mileage data, less for city)

The test is so far off base that turning the air conditioner on as is being proposed will have next to no effect. They need to move to a more realistic driving cycle (maybe more than 48 mph as is used now for highway), and simulate the typical idling time for congestion.

All that aside, the M5 real-world fuel consumption is in that range, so why would the new M3 be any different? Isn't it 80% of the V10 from the M5?

SANguru 08-18-2006 04:08 PM

Jeff. that's the EPA published figures for the E60 M5 also but in REAL WOLRD, it's a lot worst. try 8-10mpg COMBINED!

Yes, I have heard the talks about it, cannot confirm yet if it will be called M4. But we know that there will be a 4-door version of ///M3.

Yes, I believe you. I do think there is an element of 'use the power, pay the price' and if driven ridiculously slowly, the M5 could do a lot better. Having said that, I know you aren't slowing down anytime soon, and I am sure I wouldn't either. Still love your tag line, #1 OPEC supporter.

SANguru 08-18-2006 05:31 PM

haha.. between this and the S4, they should vote me in as president, Chairman and CEO of OPEC. I tried driving the entire week on P400, take it nice and slow, shift at 3000. Same damn result. Car runs real rich down low and that's the problem. I am hoping the AA software will fix that. Just did a re-adaptation last week. So far, a little sign of improvement with 1/4 left, gas light on, and 164miles to this tank. :) I'm really not upset about the gas mileage, just more the pathetic cruising range stock of ~150 before running dry. BMW should have increased the tank by another 10 gallons. :)

Seriously. 150 mile cruising range is a joke. Id be geting gas every 2 to three days if i drove one every day. My X5 goes 400miles on one tank.

SANguru 08-19-2006 01:20 AM

yup.. avg 3 times a week. sometimes 2x a weekend.

JCL 08-19-2006 01:28 AM

I went to the dealer several times and spec'd out an M5 a few months ago. Interlagos, silverstone extended leather, executive package. A set of winter wheels and tires. Worked up the price, I was thinking that the X5 and Z4 would both go, and I would have a fun car every day. The fuel consumption was the single biggest issue to me. The limited range would be a PITA, the cost of fuel would be a nuisance but a known quantity (at least for a while), but what choked me was the idea of consuming that much fuel for one person to drive back and forth to work. Maybe it is not logical (whoever said the M5 was logical?), but I think the factory has to do better. It is an amazing engine, but now lets see them get that power (or close to it) with a little more reasonable fuel consumption. I think the 335 coupe is a step in the right direction, but only time will tell.

Josh, something tells me that yours is for fun, and you will trade it off when things like the fuel consumption become too much of a pain. Enjoy it in the meantime, or for a long time if I am wrong, it is an amazing car in a lot of other respects.

Shit thats the kind of cruising range a ford ac cobra got with the 427. Afterall this is a 4 door sedan and someoone may want to drive it on a trip sometime and might not want to het gas every 2 hours. If i drove it to FLorida i woould have to gas it up 11 times. I only had to gas up my X5 3 times when i took that to Florida. You figure the engineers would have thought about this and did something although i understand it wouldt be an easy fix.

SANguru 08-19-2006 01:58 AM

yup.. it is my daily driver but I am waiting for my weekend car. I tend to buy and sell my cars probably 2 to 3 times a year. I have a 997 turbo that's on order for delivery in November but have been dabbling with the idea of AM V8 lemans edition as I have confirmed that it IS coming to the US in very very limited quantities (~540hp). I took the standard AM V8 out for about an hour last weekend and was fairly impressed with the overall package with handling, fit and finish and the looks of that car. The exhaust on the car sounds almost ferrari-esqe and rivals the gallardo. Did I mention the car looks absolutely gorgeous in person? It was little down on power though. I've also looked at a couple gallardos but lambo's recently do not hold their value very well and getting in one will mean you will take a huge bath.. I would love to get a 430 but they are just to pricey at this point and I cannot justify spending 230K+ on a car that I can't drive all the time.

back on track though, the price of gas doesn't bug me.. 50 bucks a tank is not bad. It's just how many times I have to get gas a week. The attendant at the gas station is on a first name basis with me.. haha

Yes it's 18.5 and can go 320mi to a tank easy... Pushed it around 375mi once...

I got like 360 out of mine it was a long highway trip though cruising around 80mph. If i push it hard and its a lot of city driving i will get slightly inder 300miles to the tank. Now that is normal. 150miles to a tank is a joke

SANguru 08-19-2006 09:34 PM

The X3 is 17.7 gal and even I think it should be bigger, maybe around 19 or 20 gal? Nevertheless I average 20mpg in the city and once stretched range to 423 mi and 27mpg (highway of course)
