REV TO THE LIMIT
The new BMW M3 is an important car for me here at RevToTheLimit because it is on my shortlist for replacing my current ride, a 2013 C63 AMG with performance package. I have been waiting eagerly to see some reviews. The new M3 is always going to be one fo the most highly anticipated sports cars of the year. It just isn't that often we get a new M3.
Even though their M3 predecessors were never the fastest or most hardcore models at this level, they always set the tone with their all-round performance. According to the first reviews, the same seems to hold true for the new M3.
The general tone when watching these initial reviews is that BMW M3 is better than its predesessor in every way, shape and form....except one. Almost every reviewer says that it basically sounds like crap. Too bad because that's one of the key things that make the entire experience of owning a high performance car so fun. The new twin turbo straight six has more than enough power and torque and is also more efficient so maybe we're being a little too harsh. Still, I can't help thinking that this could be the main reason I don't buy one.
Check out the 2015 M3 Video Reviews below:
This new version of the M3 is the latest in a long line of high-performance rear-drive BMWs, but it's the first M3 with a turbocharged engine. Can it live up to the pedigree of its predecessors? Steve Sutcliffe finds out.
The historic Mid-Ohio Raceway roared to life this week with the sound of power, M Power. In an unprecedented show of force, the brand brought together every generation of M3 street and race cars and invited Justin along for the ride. Of course, he couldn't wait to get behind the wheel of the all new 2015 BMW M3 to record some of the first driving impressions on the latest evolution of a legend.
This review is in German, but is sounds great so worth sharing.

The first official press photos shown here
Introducing the next generation of BMW's M cars: the 2014 M3 and M4. The first official press photos came out this morning, a day earlier than we were expecting. We love the look of the new models with a complete redesign. The cool black kidney front grille, extremely aggressive dual front intakes and very M3 bulged bonnet all come together nicely. It also features more sporty wing mirrors and this display car has new twin five-spoke grey wheels, gold brakecalipers and a bare carbon fiber roof.
The M4s new twin turbocharged 3.0-liter straight six is rated at 425hp and 406 lb-ft of torque with most of it readily available from 3,900 rpm. 0-60mph should come in 4.1 seconds in the seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission and slight slower (4.3 seconds ) in the standard six-speed manual gearbox.
