Default OT. New m3/m4

Terrible color and a little blingy- but sounds like will have a manual trans.

Not official, but just read this 422 hp, 400 tq, and 3289 lbs.

May be a semi competitor of gt3 for roughly 1/2 price.

Looks great!
I think it could be an option as long as it's not a pig heavy.

Again looks great but I recently shared a garage at a trackday with a current M3 and it could only run 4-5 laps of PI before it had fried tyres, brakes and was overheating engine components etc... That was on an 18oC day... I've done 1 hour stints on a 35oC day... Different league without significant modification...

What Chris says, but that goes for all cars this side of a GT3.
Unlikely, but maybe the Corvette?

BMW turbo's go in limp mode if I drive to the supermarket, or at least every single time I drive the CEL comes on. Give it back to my wife and it goes away again...

Agreed Trak! Seeing that poor guy run for less than half of each 30 minute session despite the verrrry mild conditions was eye opening... Didn't realise how good we had it by comparison...

When I get to a track, if I don't bury 100 laps that day, I'm disappointed... An M3 would disappoint me as a track car...

Yeah, nothing makes me grumpier than not being able to run due to mechanical issues.

That M4 is the sexy, even with a horrible color. Interested.

A silly exaggeration, but yes a massive concern for this car. I have driven multiple turbo M5s and M6s on track and they have all consistently gone into limp mode after a couple of laps - these were 95+ degree days. Around town and on canyon runs, there are no issues at all (even at over 100 degree temps).

The M3 is a common car used for track days. Will be sad if it is plagued by these same characteristics. Finally, the weight is headed in the right direction though!

Having trouble believing 3300 lbs.

Front fascia below headlights already in desperate need of a re-design.

Using history as a guide, it will be a great street car providing great sounds and comfort, but will disappoint on track other than one fast hot lap. Will need a lot of mods to get it to trackworthy and those mods can add up quickly and destroy resale value.

Looks awesome. The color is very fitting to differentiate itself from the pack. With Standard colors, it'll look plain. Rear wheels must be massive for this beast to stay on the road.
