Look at the bright side. Since you'll be driving an M3 - and not just any M3, a special one with a big spoiler and splitter - people will already assume you are compensating for something anyway.

Too bad no 6sp manual. Would have been my next car.

Porsche gets it, people are wild for the GT3 stick. Why make a most tactile, hardcore car for enthusiasts and not have a manual at least as an option? Insane.

m3 has never received lci headlights. exhaust tips can just be swapped so don't lose sleep over it

Are people really going to be willing to pony up, let's SWAG it at $6k more, just for the privilege of the OLED tail lights and the two door body? It seems like a dubious product structure and strategy.

If it is a CS, I have plenty of crow to eat. In my defense, there have been lots of claims but no pictures, no credible inside info, and no other evidence.

Anyway thanks for posting the pics, Jason!
I hate to say I told you so.

What I meant to say was that there is at least one M3 CS in Garching already. You should see more of it in the future.

There are actually at least 2 M3 CS cars. This one looks like a different color from the one I've seen which also has the M3 CS badge on the trunk.

The problem with leaking pictures online without camo and before the car is spotted testing is that it would not help the people taking the pictures and could even cost them their jobs.

Sometimes you just have to have a little faith.

Also, wanted to point out: Everyone is saying "Why didn't they use an LCI..."
It is an LCI. It's an LCI-1, meaning a 2017 model. LCI tails, without LCI headlights is an LCI-1.
They've probably been working on it since 2017.

When would this be cut in? I might be wrong, but isn't there about a year left for the F80 M3 production? Would this even make it to the US?

Check ynguldyn's post edits. The existence of this model should've been posted at the same time as the M4 GTS details. I think it was assumed that the F80 M3 CRT was cancelled, but I guess not. So definitely a nice surprise here.

Should not have been a surprise.

There was an M3 CS thread where it was mentioned that the car already exists along with the the parts that were on it. That thread is over here:

http://f80.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho....php?t=1376647

Pictures could not be posted on that thread for obvious reasons. You will also see this car unveiled sooner than expected.

Where are we thinking for price premium over current M3? Also, will the EOP be 10/18 like the F80, or will they extend this to 19?

Wait what? A car with a $30-40k USD premium to the M4CS beat it in a drag race? Well now, that almost defies the laws of physics. Man, being from Munich you seem to care much more about straight line speed. Sure you are not an American redneck?

Haven't seen your post, but a special model M3 was hinted by BMW back in 2015, so the surprise I'm talking about is that they are actually following through with it.

It's all good.

Part of my job is to be skeptical. If you read through this thread, I am not the only one still asking questions. Since you seem to know so much, maybe you could answer those.

Oh, and since you are bringing up past posts, let's not forget this one I made back in April.
