New M3 legroom

Not sure if the data has been released and whether the dimensions are the same (or very similar) to the 3 series coupe, but does anybody know what the new M3 legroom is going to be? I'm 6'1 and afraid that I won't fit in there. Any help would be much appreciated.

I'd be more worried about the backseat. Like will there be enough room for a girl to get her ankles to her ears?

No problem in the M sedan.

Easy answer on this question: Test-sit in a 328i or 335i coupe. Yes, the seat itself will be slightly different on the M3 but the basic structure should be the same.

thanks for the advice. i sat in an SL500 and i seem to fit just right, with the exception that the my line of vision is alot closer to the top of the windshield than expected. i'd have to bend my back a little to have it in the middle, which would probably make my back hurt if i do that everyday...

don't really care about the back seats... two girls is more than enough for me! no need to squeeze another behind me!
