When the e92 is finally released........99% of us will like it......and I'm sure will look better in person. All the car publications will worship it....yada yada yada. It will be that same song and dance as with the e46m and the e36m. All the awards will come to the Propeller Emblem. It's just reality.

Thank god the tail/trunk lights look better than in other photos... some artist renditions had the back end looking like a Taurus.

Keeping fingers crossed here...

Actually, I been hearing that they might just make 3 version of the M3 and keep the coupe alive, so don't debate that. But thats an M4 in those "spy pics"
