What do you think of the new M3?

Now that BMW has officially released the M3 concept car at Geneva, what do you think of it?

The look is great for a performance car. Clean lines and sleek apperance looks fast.
What are the significant body style differences from the 06 335ci?

There are a few misses with the new M3, but overall it has an aggressive look, and the goods under the hood to back it up!

And personally, I love the hood.

It doesn't stand out as much as I thought it would, but it still looks great.

It definitely has that feel..

But I'd still take one. I think they look pretty cool.. I bet it will be quite powerful too.

G35

Sorry Team BMW...this SCREAMS G35. I dig the "might as well be a" shaker hood. The side vents are 'soft'. The intake on the nose is soft. The side sills are soft. Its just a little too swoopy and Infinity. All the crazy shapes of an F1 car seem more agreswsive than this. This is a race car for the streets! A street fighter! A little 'rough around the edges' for a BMW! Its starting to look like a bad body kit.

I cant believe I have just said all those things about an M3. Someone shoot me. Or give me the keys. I'm sure it will grow on me.

From the rear quarter picture it looks like an Accord. They could have done better.

LOL, the confusion comes from the fact that the G35 in its latest incarnation is almost a match of the 3-series at a smaller price. German cars are looking as much like Japanese cars as Infiniti/Lexus/Acura have attempted to look German/Euro, with the Korean cars coming on strong too.

Why does everybody have to get an attitude about these cars, anyways? Immitation is admiration and aspiration. From that, it pushes the M badges (as well as others) to set the bar even higher. Sheesh, at the price things are going anyways, I'm thinking more I35 or G37 for pure fun, especially for the price.

The exterior is ok and i could live with it with some more aero enhancements, but the interior, an area where I have to see while driving is not so pleasing. Ill pass.

It would depend on how it drives to me. I'm not too sure about the looks, have to see it in person.
