I really hope they don't drop the ball when it comes to creating the F3X M3.

"F31 3er Touring is not coming to the US Market."

Sad day for wagon fans in the US.

As per the usual 3-series sedan/coupe timeline, the F32 coupe should debut a year later sometime in 2013.

That's a good question...

Will we see the 4 banger that looks promising? Will the 6 cyl options be based on more powerful N54/N55 versions? Or something new?

Perhaps this info is already out there, and I just don't know.

No engine options have been confirmed yet, but expect it to include a full range of turbo and naturally aspirated 6-cyl, 4-cyl, and possibly even a new 3-cyl motor. The 28i will likely be powered by the same N20 turbo 4-cylinder powering the X1 xDrive28i and the upcoming Z4 sDrive28i, and the F30 335i/340i will again be powered by a turbo 6-cylinder engine.

So I assume this means Summer 2014 for the new M3?

Going by the timeline of the F10 intro and roll out of the upcoming M5, I think an F3x M3 would be closer to Late 2014 or Early 2015.

I think that's a safe estimate.

If required, I will move to Audi Avant for my next car if the 3er GT doesn't offer what I want.

That's a shame.
