It's fair to say we're going to miss the E92 BMW M3. Its high-revving V8, flame-styled looks and excellent driving character made it quite simply one of the best cars of the 2000s. It's replacements, the new M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe have a lot to live up to.

We still have a few months to wait until we can drive the new cars, but that doesn't mean we can't get excited in the meantime, learning everything we can. To find out, we sent west coast editor Michael Harley onto the Detroit Auto Show floor earlier this week to talk about the new M cars with BMW product manager Victor Leleu.

If you want a concise, but highly informative rundown of these new cars, look no further than this video. Leleu talks about the styling, weight savings and engines in a lot of detail, making this an interview M fans aren't going to want to miss. Scroll down for the full video.

I dunno, I can still see the hood line on my Phoenix haha.



You'd think they would just make the hood like this: ag_08m3_hood.jpg




Honestly, its a small detail, but it just looks so weird haha

Oh, I get why it's like that...

Not a lot of people know, but there's been new crash regulations made for pedestrian protection. That's why the hood ends like that, plastics have more give than a steel/aluminum hood.

If your hitting someone hard enough to have the plastic damage like that then its not gonna matter. And it only adds like, what, 3-4 inches of plastic? Unless there is some sort of hard evidence study about it then I don't see it being that effective. I've been hit by a car before and something with a low profile like that car you're more likely to roll up the hood anyways haha.

I think the new Sierra looks awesome. I honestly can't wait for the new Colorado/Canyon. Too bad the diesel isn't coming out until the 2016 model year.
