M3/M4 Appear at the BMW Performance Center

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
At the PDC for a 2-Day M School and noticed these guys hanging out. Apparently they were here for some press drives. M4 in Sakhir Orange. M3 in Austin Yellow and Alpine White.

Rear tires on the AW M3...toast. I tried to get a good pic of the driver seat with the cloth, but with the windows closed and the way the lighting was, it just washed out.

As far as when the M3/4 will become part of the fleet for the M Schools, the cars they ordered are on the ground in the states, but stuck at the VDC awaiting CARB clearance. As soon as they are cleared, they will have to go through break-in, and then they will be placed into service. Their best guess is mid June. Needless to say, we were bummed we missed them by like a month...

Really curious how long it will be until the M school gets their M3/4's. I had always thought that could be a great chance to get a real test drive of the cars.

Second pic is of the cloth seats. These pics have been hard to come by so far, nice catch.

Hope they're still there on Friday. I'll be up in the area for a hot air balloon festival so maybe I'll drop by.

i don't think it's to everyone's tastes....but that Austin Yellow is one FUNKY colour.....loud and in your face. I sort of wish the M3 came in Dakar Yellow instead....but i do like Austin Yellow for its boldness.

i showed a photo to my wife who said "it's a really cool colour....but not on a car" lol

What are your thoughts on AY and SO? How did they compare to each other? What was your favorite (between the two)?

That sucks! My M4's at VDC now also, I expect I have the same delays....

BTW, great pics!

The main thing I don't like with SO is the rear - no contrast with the tail lights. Also, it doesn't show the lines of the car as well as AY.

AY looks very nice, but not sure I could stomach owning a yellow car...

I'll echo what another poster said...AY is not nearly as "in your face" as I thought it would be, much more tolerable in person. It really contrasts well with the darker parts of the car. Id still take the SO every time, but agree that the lack of contrast at the rear is a let down.

Thanks for the feedback. I really like SO. I've seen it on some M6s. Great color. I kind of like the tone on tone tail lights. Plus, it really goes with black well. That said, I want to like the AY for some reason. Maybe because it's so different. Need to see it in person still.
