It is a patent that can be utilised in a number of configurations and as the schematics show that it can be applied in any configuration then it can be developed and tested in any configuration.

Of course the M3 is but one option , but you have to take into consideration the next generation of X5M and X6M and amongst other ideas if everything builds towards M Division's stand alone products then they have to be unique and "stand apart" from the regular M cars especially when it will not be about image but showing that you are the best at doing the best, especially when you are so well advanced further than the competition for the cost effective use of materials.

But as we head into the IAA all focus by German media is currently aimed at the IAA but afterwards the first week and once the press conferences have died down and the execs have gone back to work it will be business as normal.

Autobild will be leading with a 3er special that will not only give you a preview of a closer render of the final appearance (as per usual Autobild before the launch) before the weeks countdown to the World Premiere.
But also that of the Touring , M3 and the 4er Coupe and Cabrio. And then after the 3er towards the end of the year you will see the new M6.
