I've seen the pics in your link scattered here and there on various websites over the past 6 months. That leads me to believe, or I should say hope, that the M3 will look significantly different. There's something inharmonious about all of the pics I've seen and I don't like it.
I don't know about everyone else, but I'm hoping for a much cooler looking car than what has been revealed (or imagined) thus far. It's hard to get specific about subjective things, but we all know beauty when we see it.
Please BMW, don't F this up as you've done with the 5 series.

If you find the BMW e90 sedan, coupe and wagon beautiful then you will likely find the upcoming M3 beautiful. Based on the photos I have seen there does not appear to be a major departures in looks when compared to an e90.
Only time will tell.

Am I the only person in the world that thinks the BMW 5 is the SEXIEST vehicle being sold? Sure i can't say the same for the 1, 3, 6, 7, X3, and current X5 but i mean ISN'T SHE EXQUISITE!?!
The designers at toyota seem to agree with me especially since they built the Scion tC(2007 has a msrp of $15k) so similar to it?
Sure its missing the angels eye and signaling eyebrow but its nothing a few mods wont fix.
ON the subject matter, The m3 is kinda homely IMO. The old3 and the 19893 were my favorite. I guess I like every other generation of 3. This look IMO is revolunitary for a 5. For once it isn't similar to the Bangle Butt 7 (unlike the new 3. The new m3 seems to share the 6 & 7s rear) The freshened x5 is also handsome .

if you guys want to get a better look at what the ne m3 looks like, go to www.ask.com and select images and type in 2008 m3 and it brings up two photos of the new m3. i'm sure you have all heard about the new 328i and 335i coupes........but bmw just told us that they will put the 300 hp twin turbo in the sedan

#131 of 204 2006 SMG Shifting
Jul 30, 2006 (5:49 am)
Hello fans, I recently had my 2006 M3 with SMG updated - installed new software/recalled. I am not sure if it is my imagination or a real issue, but I find that every once in a while when I am starting out in first gear, there seems to be a very slight but noticeable 'putter' before it takes off, as if I had a manual and did not make a smooth shift transition. Has anyone every noticed this problem? Is it an issue that needs to be resolved or just normal? Thanks in advance.

I find it very interesting that the video seems to be a BMW demo of the 335 with a Manual transmission. I would think they'd debut an SMG version since it seems that the SMG is the BMW transmission of choice. Where did I get that idea from?? well, correct me if I'm wrong but I believe, the current M3 in the US originally only came with SMG, furthermore, the legendary "purist" CSL M3 in Europe ONLY comes with SMG. I think that speaks volumes, which confuses me on the choice of the manual demo in that video. hmm, I wonder..where did that video come from??
