Base MSRP?

Ceramic brake additional cost? I know they provide more adequate heat dissipation, but do they provide additional stopping power?

Lease residual? Can't believe I'm asking that, but I travel a lot now (and will for the foreseeable future), and only put 7K miles on my 2 year old car.

Any other colors available besides the ones announced? It's a rather bland color palette...

1. Pricing

2. Details about the turbochargers including confirmed model #s, flow capacity, any technical specs you can get. Confirm the differences in the turbochargers compared to the 320d, which appears to have the same model number.

3. Weight distribution (if this is available, I've missed it)

4. Center of gravity compared to the 335i/435i - how much lower is it with the weight savings and different suspension.

5. What tires come on the vehicle (if this is available, I've missed it)

6. Details about the turbo pre-load/anti-lag system - and does this also mean the m3/m4 has cylinder de-activation during cruising?

7. What U.S. fuel economy can be expected city and highway - does this increase mean the M3/M4 will not receive a gas guzzler tax.

8. The trans is the same as the 1M. Is the clutch, pressure plate, and flywheel the same? If not, what's different?

....that's it for now.

Ok, we actually know why they don't offer full LED tail lights, but I would like to hear their official explanation. Full LED tail lights is something they've offered even for the LCI E46, it's not a new technology anymore, so why is it not possible to have it in a car that costs more than $ 100'000 (except in the US). Would be great if we could finally hear their statement.

And as already mentioned, why don't they offer more different colours, and why only one metallic black (and it's the "least special" Black Sapphire, not even an M colour as Jerez Black oder Carbon Black etc.).

1. Is the reported DIN weight with or without CCBs?
2. Why no CFRP trunk on the M3?
3. Suspension height difference between standard and EDC.
4. Spring load difference between standard and EDC.
5. Individual color pricing and what colors in each tier.

Not really a question, but I'm really dying to hear how the exhaust sound from inside the cabin.
All the videos I've seen, has omitted the in cabin sound. What do you guys think about the exhaust note?

+ Details on the rev matching shifting or what specific gearbox it is (model #/manuf.)
+ BASE PRICE
+ Scale Weight with 1/4 tank srs… wanna know real world scale weight as Curb/USvsEURO Curb weights are just confusing. E9x M3 no options weights <3500lbs after cat delete on scales with 1/4 tank, curious if the Fxx M3 will weigh <3,400lbs stock (no mods or deletes) with 1/4 tank.

Hoping it doesn't come in at 3,300 dead on scales or I'll be very jealous lol, but in reality it would be great from an enthusiasts standpoint regardless… Less weight = more desirable car, and thats good for the automotive industry.

The "why" questions will not be recited to BMW... "What" and "how many/how much" will be better suited questions. The answer to every "why/why not" question is "money", and it's therefore a useless question. LED tails have been an LCI tradition at this point, and it allows them to emphasize the late cycle refresh. It saves them money now and justifies a slightly higher cost in the future =money. Boring.
