#102 of 151 Photos of the Audi R8
Feb 18, 2007 (6:37 am)
Here are some photos of the Audi R8, a hot 420 HP six speed, loaded w/ carbon fiber and other cool things (including the rear engine V8).
Is that a rear engine or mid engine?
You can view the photos at http://www.taxicabs.com/autoshow/chicago2007/Audi/R8/
The first 5 photos are lower quality, so I went back to the Auto show with a new camera, and took 15 more photos. Just click on the photo of the R8 to move to the next photo.

I gave the IS-F to much credit as it's only going to have 390 hp. vs 490.
Regardless it will be a great BMW 335i beater but I predict the M3 to walk all over it. I really would like to see a 08' M3 Sedan photo's.

"only" 390 hp?

Pat, have you seen any pics of the M3 sedan or heard anything about prices. I bet this new one pushes $60K or more. I will admit I'm a BMW M3 fan but boy they sure have gotten very expensive.
I'd love to see pics of the new M3, especially the sedan.
P.S. 390 hp. is a Lexus isn't the same as 390-400 in a BMW. You know that as well. 0-60 times with 400 hp M3 is likely low 4's. My buddy's 240 hp M3 Sedan would do it in 5.4-5.6 range and add another 160 hp with new engine technology you can easily take a second to almost a second and half off that.

I think if you go to German car fan, and then click BMW, they have some photos, and artist renderings

Dan, all I got under punching in German Car Fan in the search window was the World Cars site. It didn't have any 08' M3 sedan pics. They are predicting the 08' M3 to be around $55K so I figure in the $60's if you get options like Navigation, unless it comes standard ?
Here's a good pic.

I ordered the IS-F. I have the IS350 right now, I traded in a 1999 M3 Convertible for that.
The M3 handled much better than the IS350, though I'm hoping the IS-F will handle better than my old M3. I agree, the new M3 will be faster and handle better than the IS-F, but I'm going to have a hell of a great time with it.
If it wasn't for the damn I-drive, and the fact the M3 would probably cost 20k more (fully loaded) I would LOVE to get it.

About the iDrive, have you experienced it? I haven't, but from what I consistently read in discussions and consumer reviews, nearly everyone reports that it's not at all as difficult as some would have us believe. Like I said, no personal experience here - just wondering about your perspective.

I have. My mother has a 530 w/ i-drive. It's ok to use, I suppose.... but nowhere near as easy as my Lexus touchscreen.
