No more new 2011 models to lease :(

So basically you can only order a 2012 model which doesn't make sense because BMW hasn't even revealed what this model will look like. The best spy shot I could find was on car buzz showing that the new 2012 model will not have a hood scoop can anyone confirm this? Just when I decide to pull the trigger they take out the most beautiful component of the m3!

The 2012 M3 looks exactly the same as the 2011 M3.

That's the 3 series test mule. The 2012 will be the E92/93 (current model). The next M3 might be called ///M4 ......maybe a 2013/2014 release...........Phil

As I watch MNF this comes to mind......C'Mon Man.......the 2012 ///M3 is a E9x series. No dealer in the world will tell you other wise. You gotta trust the experts......where do you think dealers get most of their info from?..................Phil

Geez...how many ways can we tell you?

Tha IS an M3...just not a 2012...it's a spy photo of the NEXT GEN M3...
...BMW testing a prototype or perhaps, but unlikely, the finished version???
They can do that.
It's their car...they can realese it when the want and play around with it for a few yrs.
They are talking about how the NEW F30 3 series is finalized and set for release this coming Spring 2012...
...the M3 to follow in a couple of years. Does not mean some kind of "F" series M3 does not "exist" for testing purposes!
The 2012 is the same E9x, current gen / model.
