F80 M3 presentation in Laguna Seca end of march???

Can anyone confirm the rumor, that the new F80 M3 sedan would be presented to US-Top Dealers and premium buyers at an event in Laguna Seca End March 2012?

Could that meen, that the new Lightweight-V6-F80-M3-sedan could also be the great gift of the M-GmbH for their great 40th birthday on the M-Festival 2012 at the Nürburgring 24 hour-race in May 2012?

I'll send a PM to GOLFFRR. He works at an M-certified dealership in California, so if select dealers have been told about this event, chances are his would be one of those.

Let me text Ryan right now and see if he has heard anything. Ryan being #1 would know if anything such as this was happening and he would have told me the second he found out and he has not mentioned anything to me

Ryan just stated that he has not heard anything about any such events or even anything that would even hint at anything. So with that being said I would have to say A. just a rumor or B. we just are not one of the selected end users.

I would think though if there was anything Ryan would know he constantly has Brass from BMW and BMW M division contacting him regarding various info. So I guess we will just have to see!

In Germany BMW would not present a new unseen model at a "public" location. It would be behind closed doors @ Garching or the FIZ In Munich or even at a Private test track.
It would be like last years M event which witnessed the M pick-up , M3 CRT Prototype and Concept M5 prior to its premiere in Shanghai , and in 2012 Auto China Beijing is at the end of April.

What meen "M: the next chapter: Genf 2012" ... only the all new 2 M6s or also an secret (closed room) presentation of the new F80 M3 ??? Chapter as I understand meens something revolutionary new ... not only an new M car like the M6 ... but the first look at an totally new lightweight M3?

If there is an march event in Garching where kueks29 is invited ... there could be an presentation in Geneva at the same time ... only for special guests and fans from the M-GmbH?

BMW M.Performance Automobiles ( I think it has been there since December).
I do not think an M3 will be offered in a closed room. Because we are still a distance away. BMW M. hosts similar events all the time @ Garching.

Nomally with a BMW Concept Car it is there for the duration?
I am sure we will learn a little more about the M3 over the next few weeks but do not expect a flood, just brief nods and winks to signify acknowledgement.
