And VERY surprised at how fast it is for an entry level 3.

Even got a speeding ticket for 52 in a 40 one block from the dealership. California is broke
Which dealership?

Looks cool but its still going to be well under powered. They should have put the M5/6 motor in it

It's impossible to tell what it looks like with such heavy camo, plus not all the parts are final production. The track is wider and, I'm assuming like in the past two gens, 70% of the car will have nothing to do with the 330is and 335is of the world.

Great pictures Mike, thanks for sharing.

This past Monday I spotted what I think was this exact car on Monday near Hermosa Beach on Pacific Coast Highway. My first thought was "I didn't know the F30 M3 was out yet" but I couldn't get any pictures because I was on my motorcycle. To my surprise I saw this post with all the pics just taken a few days ago in what is pretty much the same area.

It sounded nice accelerating from each traffic light; nothing too aggressive but the driver was driving normally.

It will not be presented Shanghai. The BMW star is the X4 Concept. Two Concept cars are not displayed. F80 production version might probably have a "behind the curtains" presentation, but no pics, no info, not even to the special guests.

+1

If that car didn't have that "hey look at me camo" less people would notice it, for sure.

I think the driver was trying to avoid me taking pics because when the light turned he sped off and I heard that awesome exhaust growl..

Never have I been so excited to see a car... It's my baby.. just 5 years newer and all grown up!

You can see the hood scoop and some nice big brakes I just wanted to get out of my car and undress her.. Enjoy!!

Admin Edit:

More F80 M3 info @ http://www.bimmerpost.com/m3/f80m3/

Those are non-production mirrors on the prototype. The production ones remain hidden under more advanced prototypes, as seen HERE.

This is the second sighting posted on F80 M3 sighting in LA. This was the first from last year: http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=724049
It looks amazing. Can't wait to see the coupe.

Are your planing on getting one Mike?

I hate camo :-/ I want to see the final product already, that and the much anticipated M2! My lease is up in 15 just in time for a possible ED and purchase on an M2. Super excited, I think more so for the M2 then the m3/4.

maybe, but they have been doing it with all M's, recently with M5 and M6, and even years later they dont release them even as optional
