Exactly. It's pretty easy to hear that one guy is loafing and one guy's on it a little harder.

Is it me but the front wheels are not the testing wheels are they? They look like the M6 GC wheels (kind of...)

Edit : I'm sure now, they are not the testing wheels, front or rear.

Added Carbon Fiber Trunk to the list.

Also added the reveal of both the production M3 and M4 at Detroit Auto Show in January 2014.

The latest prototypes show the production wheels, which resemble the M6 GC wheels, but aren't the same.

Just found this video, shot on the 18th of July.

This is the most aggressive driving I've seen so far from the new M3. Sounds and looks quite aggressive. Sounds like the engine revs quite high when you hear it approaching.

Compared to the good old high reving natural aspirated BMW engines it sounds like a vacuum cleaner.
Hope that they will keep on working on the exhaust tone.

here a direct comparison on the same track with the S65

I guess it's all down to preferences. To me, both in your vid and from being at the ring, the S65 has a slightly dull and uninspiring sound... Compared with many other cars driving there. It just does'nt stand out and if a M3 drives among other cars, you have a hard time hearing the M3.

But, that's me. I am very happy that the M3 is moving away from the "muscle car" V8 sound. But I really get that to many, it's that V8 soundtrack that makes the car!

And, hardly fair to compare a stock development car with a S65 with Akra exhaust.... Still, I preferred the soundtrack from the F80 with S55 engine

I thought the latest from Scott said the M3 is going to debut in Tokyo Dec 2013 and the M4 in Detroit Jan 2014

The M3 Sedan is now expected to launch at the Tokyo Motor show in December with the M4 , X4 and another premiere for NAIAS.

The previous E90 M3 Sedan had its world premiere at Tokyo 2007 along with the BMW 1er Concept Tii.

Sorry if i missed it but the M3 and M4 are both being released at the same time now?

I thought the M3 was to be released in 2014 and M4 in 2015?

Not sure if this video has been posted here before:

(Use headphones to get a better impression of exhaust sound)

I hope some of the planned information to be released at the end of September will provide details on the engine. This whole twin vs tri turbo thing is killing me.
