    That drawing on the tach is present in all BMWs with Start/Stop system. It's to show you that the car is not really stopped, it's just waiting for driver input to start.

    This thing just does not instill excitement in me. The engine probably won't, the looks don't, and probably the exhaust won't either. BMW exhaust noises sound like $#@! nowadays IMO, just look at the M5. The future C class AMG does though. Even the current C63 coupe feels and looks more exciting in my opinion. Whatever little inline 6 in that ///M is in there will probably never match the brutality of whatever AMG will have in the new C AMG. 4.0 liter TT V8? anyone? Lol Click here to enlarge

    Ya TT V8 will be hard to ignore. I'm done with BMW anyway, over it.

    Agreed, enough with the spy shots, isn't the 4 door m3 being debuted in sept 2013? That's not far away, you would think they could give us some more....

    I'm sure some point during the summer, the BMW official photos & specs will be released. The problem is even if the car is launched in 2014, that's still like ~1 yr of aftermarket development (identifying/addressing weakness, developing an appropriate tuning solution, etc etc).

    eh, not really, I had a blast with the 335. only downside was the trans thing, RBs + JB2-3-4 were amazing and i never regretted that part of it. If I got the new M, JB5 would be the first mod Click here to enlarge

    Highly doubt this. BMW will not want to spend more than they have to. Plus they'll make it a nightmare for the tuners.

    Well I won't compare how well the DCT in the E9x M3s is holding up, even with superchargers because there isn't a ton of TQ. What's really gonna be a good indicator is how well the DCT in the new M5/M6s hold up to abuse once people start tracking their cars & modding them (specifically increasing the boost & a lot more TQ).

    I will say that the DCT in the 335is & 135 (with the N55) have been holding up just fine, with some of them pushing out over 400 WTQ.

    Have a feeling the M4 will get a substantial msrp bump, over the M3 E92. Think it will be easy to option it into $80k, especially will the carbon brakes.

    The manual will be waaaaay easier as far as handling big power is concerned. The new M3 is not going to be easy for tuners.

    What are you talking about...throw a JB on it and it will run down a Veyron.

    Put two JB's on it and... who knows what will happen. The world may not be ready to find out.

    if they want to TRUELY be competitive, they better over engineer some $#@!. think about it, if an M could really rival other easy big HP cars, they will sell the $#@! out of them. now that its going to be boosted, i think the aftermarket tuners will have an increase in attention to it.

    Problem is the competition will have boosted V8's.

    BMW's never were and never will be the best choice for big HP aftermarket performance. They just happen to be pretty good at everything all around.

    So true. It will probably be way easier to make bigger numbers int he TT V8 AMG's than the BMW I6 TT.
