all of the new Ms are featuring the kidney grille badge. I wasn't a fan at first, but it is kinda growing on me.
The renders look decent, but I highly doubt they are that accurate. However, I think the overall feel is there.
I can't wait to see what it really does look like!

As an example, below you will see their render of the Ferrari 458. I also added the real one below for comparison:

The more M badges, the more M car you get.

One day having a BMW without M badge will be condidered a "special edition".

Not sure about M2, but it would really be nice, especially since the WRX STI and the GT86/BRZ (JDM) have CF roof.

Not a 2014 M3 Fan

The sole reaon why I purchased my 2013 M3 instead a 2014 M3 was because of the 2013 N/A engine. To hear it ,feel it is just magic. And in my opinion respresents the last of BMW ultimate driving machines. I plan on keeping my 2013 M3 for the rest of my life.

Enough said!

They should change their name to "Far" Magazine, because that's how much they're stretching.

I am 100% for sure about this too. BMW won't use the same old mirrors on current m3 as on the render.

I support you. IMO, just the look is already a killer. E90/92 M3 is the most beautiful 3er in the entire history of 3 Series so far. F30 let me down.

I don't think u need to wait. Judging from the spy photos and news along the way, the M3 sedan (not the M4 coupe) is very much like this render except the backup mirrors. Maybe the front bumper a little different. I don't need this render to "CONFIRM" it.

haha...while the new M3 is not out yet, the E9X M3 (to me, personally) already is the old M3. Its at the end of its life, it looks older then every other BMW on the market currently. These are facts....everything has been updated since 2008...think about it! The 3 series sedan, the 5 series, the 6 series, the 7 series. Everything except for the X5 and X6 (which have both since recieved facelifts as well).

Dude you are right. I bought mine for the same reason and planning to keep it. If the new M3 looks like this render.. Im not interested.. It looks like an F30 with updated exhausts!

I am waiting for the M4 though and I hope it wont be disappointing but meanwhile I'm keeping my current E92 forever. Nothing will replace the S65 V8.

I just pulled the trigger on a '13 M3 for the reason, BUT I highly doubt I'll be able to fight the temptation of the new M3/4 once released. What the hell, why not have both!
