An M division representative also reported to Road and Track nearly 10 years ago that there will never be an automatic M car. So I wouldn't put it past them.

Off topic - your car sits beautifully, do I remember correctly that it is on HR sport springs?

The E36 M came in an automatic.

LOL you're right...IIRC it was in reference to future models around the time the E46M came out. Hinted at automated sequential gear changing but specifically ruled out the future emergence of torque converters. If I'm ambitious enough I'll find the quote as I have an ungodly amount of old R&T's but we'll see

I hope it never comes in AWD, else I'd buy one in a microsecond. Only reason I am not driving one is because it's RWD (much respect to RWD but I use the car as a DD in winter and prefer having AWD, hehe). Don't need another reason to spend more money!!!!!!!

Well, considering the xi's 0-100 numbers are (slightly) faster than the i's, I would tend to say that no, not only.

Well we all know what happens with what the ///M Gmbh said. Let's face it. They've sold out. If they'll put an automatic, turbocharged V-8 in an X5 and X6 and slap ///M badges on it, what makes you or ANYONE think that any of the things that's not suppose to happen to the M3, won't happen?

Don't be surprised if there's a front wheel driven, automatic turbocharged V-6 ///M in the near future. With run-flats.

I honestly I have no problem with this, so long as choice is unaffected. Tires are often changed anyway, and as long as I can get a RWD manual or DCT M3 I could care less if they offer AWD versions. Hell, I'd even try the AWD version to see if I liked it better.

Wow, an awhile drive f30 M3 which is slated to be even bigger than e9x m3 are now will tip the scales in the 3800-4000 pound range. Yikes! That's a seriously big piggie!

yep, it's a business. only reason to have a business is to make money. you make (the most) money by catering to masses with a brand they know and respect. Hopefully there's never a trend where people really start clamoring for a ///M trike..

There is no plans for a straight M sedan with xDrive.
Due to the concern AWD adds weight which is why the X series M models exist. If you want AWD then it will have to be either X5M or X6M , but there will be a X3M and a X4M in the not-so-distant future.

Send a message via AIM to PKumarM3
i would not be in an e90 335i xdrive if the e90 m3 came in AWD. I would be in the M3

i am sure bmw can make it work.

plus bmw said that

1) it would always have a spare tire
2) it would never have a M SAV/SUV
3) it would never have FWD cars - we know thats not true
4) it would not come out with a 1M

I mean, the list goes on and on. If BMW AG can make money off an AWD M3, expect one.

And really big cup holders too??

The way I see it though, most car companies have sold out because well, the argument is they have to change with the times.

e.g. Porsche now has a SUV and a 4-door sedan. Ferrari and Porsche are now clothing brands. Mitsubishi also makes VCR's (ok, so they're kind of like Samsung and just do everything).

Point is, BMW or any car company is still a company and it's out to make money.

In all truthfulness, I'd buy an M3 too if it came with an AWD option. I went with the 335 xdrive too because of the availability of the AWD too.
