Getting Our Butts In The Seats



Both the non-M BMW 3 Series sedan and 4 Series coupe have so far brought much pleasure to us at Autoblog. The terrific four-cylinder 328i trim has become our favorite of the 3 Series line, while we have yet to get a chance at the 428i coupe. That said, the 35i trim powered by a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline six-cylinder engine is not exactly to be sniffed at.

We all know the ones you're really waiting for, though. The F80 fifth-generation M3 sedan and the supremely sexy F82 M4 coupe. Rumors have been buzzing for a couple of years now that the engine would be another V8, only turbocharged this time, or else a tri-turbo six. Well, today BMW confirmed that the mill under the hood's power bulge is a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder TwinPower Turbo of the biturbo variety, referred to internally as "S55B30 variant."

We were brought to a small airfield outside of Munich, Germany recently to receive an almost complete tech breakdown, as well as get taxi drives through a forest of laid-out cones with BMW DTM champion drivers at the wheel of both the new M3 and M4 verification prototypes. Weather was thankfully perfect, so the rides we had were as good as it's going to get until we have at it firsthand after the cars officially debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January.Continue reading First Ride: 2015 BMW M3 and M4
