Very nice. Hopefully they have sorted out the EGR-based carbon buildup cancer that is a mess for all of their turbo'd direct-injected power plants. Old V8 (M3) and V10 (M5) lack the torque of boost but don't need walnut blasting or head rebuilds (335d). Looks like longevity is low on the list in the new green era. Glad the sedan is back.

Does anybody know(inside news or predict) what size of turbo are they using on this new m3??
My guess is same size as N55's, but there are two.

"The M3’s turbos are actually smaller than the turbos in the N54HP—the 1 Series M Coupe engine"

"The M3/M4 won’t tolerate sloppy throttle inputs. It’s without a doubt the highest-performance road car M has built, but it also requires a LOT of talent to drive ... at least BMW has a network of driver’s schools to help there, starting with the teen driving program up through the BMW CCA race schools"

Since we have now seen the world premiere and US prices for the M3/4, are we still waiting on the official US order guide and option sheet? When will we be able to place our official orders?

You can place your order now, if your dealer has a spot for you. I just did yesterday, and there are a couple USA forum members who have done the same.

My order with option list:

What is "ordered"?

I call BS on this one. The US ordering computer is not up. A dealer may say he is taking your "order," but unless he can show you a computer printout from BMW's system of that order with a status code or give you a production number, he is bluffing. First the dealer must have an allocation; AFAIK no US dealers have allocation except for their demo cars. Status codes (BTW, my dealer's demo cars just went status 112 for April production):

037 – Order received by BMW NA
087 – Production Week Assigned
097 – Order Sent to BMW AG
111 – Order Accepted at BMW AG
112 – Order Scheduled for Production
150 – Production Started
151 – Body Shop Started
152 – Paint Shop Started
153 – Assembly Started
155 – Production Completed (Your baby has been born!)
160 – Released to Distribution
180 – Waiting for Export
193 – Arrived at the Port of Exit
194 – Selected for Shipment
195 – Shipped from Port of Exit
196 – Shipment Arrival/ ETA to Dealer

Awe......come on Greg. At least give them a sporting chance before pulling out the production coding process!

The status code on my printout from the dealer is "047 - Spec. released-no". All prices are listed as "Blocked". When the official pricing is announced, it should change to the actual MSRP numbers. There are a couple other people on the forum shared order printouts from their dealers, and I saw a few more names on the computer screen as the salesperson searching for my order.

Here is the thread with the actual printout minus my private information: http://f80.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=937266

Status 047 is "Allocation Requested". No allocation, no order I'm afraid. Demos don't get built until March or April.

Not sure if anyone else noticed this but the HUD shows revs just above 4k yet the tach does not.

The "4" is the gear display, not 4k rpm.

Yep. BKMK5, good eye! The HUD doesn't match the tach. Must be a photoshop error.

Probably been discussed long ago but no carbon fiber trunk lid on the M3, M4 only. Bummer, that really stinks. What - don't the M3 guys also care about loosing weight?
