It's in one of the german websites, with no specifics. Sorry I can't remember which one, now. If you come across it, pls let me know.

So, any details???

'97? Two years after they released the car in the first place? Forgive my bluntness but, if you guys are waiting for a M3 facelift before ordering, keep holding your breath. Car companies only facelift their cars if the design begins to stale in comparison to new competition. As far as I can tell, the M3 still looks as fresh as the day it came out.

Also, please list the changes that were made to the entire M3 line in '96, a year or so after it had been released in th US.

Actually, the E36 M3 was released here in June of 1994. The 3-series was facelifted in 1996 with the upgrade of the 325i to the 328i, and the M3 was bumped from 3.0 to 3.2 liters. The kidney grills were changed, the wheels/tires were changed to a wider rear/narrower front setup, and the center console was changed to accomodate the automatic climate control.

That's what I remember off the top of my head.

I wonder if they'll change the center console to accomodate i-drive, just like they changed it for the hot tech back then, the auto climate control. j/k ;)

As recently as a few weeks ago BMW officially told me (1 time on phone, 1 time by email, 1 time by letter) that there is no facelift for 2003. My car was 112 and before it went 150 I demanded to know because I didn't want to take delivery and the fall in love with some new look a few months later.

I find it hard to believe that if there is to be a change in just 4 months there are no spy shots or other reasonable confirmations.

My deal is such that they take the car back if there's a change and I like the new style better. I don't think they'd do that if they were doing a facelift.

On the other hand, one never knows. We will just have to see...

Pople who are nore concerned with the headlight arrangement than the DRIVING capabilities of a car like this should save their money.

confirming it. Try a search.

A couple of years back they did a pretty extensive reworking of the Z3, but left the M Roadster untouched. I thought it was a good move, and gave a distinct identity to the M variant. Perhaps the same will apply to the 3'ers and M3...though I did see the earlier post about the "facelift."
