New M3 in testing in L.A.

The other day I saw the next generation M3 in testing in L.A. At first sight I thought it maybe a M7 or something in testing cause the rear tail lights look simialer to that of the current 7-series and it has the quad exhausts. But a closer look put that idea into doubt. It was southbound on the 405 headed towards LAX.


When I got home I checked auto spies and sure enough the same car I saw was spied by them as the next M3

I've seen it twice already.

It's here for durability testing.

The BMW test facility is up in Oxnard.

They'll put 150K on that motor/car in 2 months or less.

We have such a great area for testing.
High altitude
hot desert
sea and below sea level, etc.......

Can't wait to see the sedan production model.
