    • And here is your 2014 F82 M4 leaked early - High resolution photos plus option ordering guide

      It seems fitting that the F80 M3 and F82 M4 should leak at the same time. Well, here is the two door version of the M3 which is arguably the better looking of the two. Coupes simply tend to have a sportier look but BMW also has done a reasonably good job keeping what is basically the same under the skin looking different from each other whether in sedan or coupe trim. The M4 of course shares the same S55 inline-6 twin turbo motor and transmission options as the M3.

      Whichever car is better looking BimmerBoost leaves up to you to decide but with a projected curb weight in the ~3300 range BMW M is finally trimming the fat and starting to get back to driver focused cars instead of portly GT's. We will all know more details such as the pricing when BMW officially reveals the cars but for now enjoy the photos.

        I keep looking at it and I just don't understand either. Something is missing. Idk it's just not that much of a M3 I would think it is. The m3 in the e46 and e9x was dramatic difference. Wider, much more aggresive all around. This just looks like a 335 with a body kit :/. I just hope it stands up to it's name around the track. M4 for me.

        No!!! Not an M4, an M3! The sedan has higher structural rigidity Click here to enlarge

        In all seriousness - the coupe looks better, and agree with you on all parts. I DO like the front aero-work, and definitely looks the part of what an M should be; however, the rest of the car doesn't stand out like the past Ms have.

        I am curious about it regardless, and will pit my car up against it as soon as they are in the dealerships.

        I consider it on par with the E92 styling wise. I just haven't had that OMG moment with a BMW in a long time. The last time was the E46 M3.

        Looks great! Was looking into getting an E92 M3 for the V8 but now I'm torn, lol

        I have to say it's so nice to have a yellow paint like this back in the lineup.

        I think the car is going to be a winner. It won't be a letdown like the M5 was initially. Let's just hope they get the steering feedback right.

        Dynamically, looks great. Sounds a little odd in the video. Not sold on looks - still dunno about that side vent.

        I dunno, I honestly still like the e9x almost too much going on with new F-bodies. last generation BMW bodies looked awesome, out of the new cars Audi hit the homerun, not BMW.
