Mein Auto: Ti Silver 03 M3
BMW F30 / F80 M3 test mule SPIED

With the E90 wrapping up production soon and with plenty of F30 spy shots going around it was only a matter of time until the F30 M3 was spied. The test mule pictures show the usual M upgrades including: 19" sport wheels, larger cross drilled rotors and multi-piston calipers, and a quad exhaust. This looks like standard F30 body work for now. The final M3 will sport wider front and rear fenders with much of the body work being made out of fiber reenforced plastics for weight savings.

The M3 is rumored to be powered by a tri-turbo 6 cylinder in either an inline or V configuration. The large displacement 8 cylinder engine is being dropped for fuel efficiency requirements.

Check out the pictures and then let us know what you think -
