absmith asks "Any advance word on price for the new M3?"It is supposed to sticker under $50k, although the limited production may result in dealer gouging like the S2000.TMFMcLaren writes "Is this system going to be really like the F1 system?"I'm not a mechanic or expert by any means, but from what I have read about the system on the Ferrari 360 Modena, my impression is that it is exactly like the F1 system as you described it. I would assume with BMW's heritage and the M3 that it will be a true F1 style system.Raggmopp writes "No, it's made for a driver who evidently can't read a temperature gauge."Speaking of temperature, may I say "simmer down now"?!? (kidding of course, I'm just a BMW-phile) Again, this is just my understanding and could be incorrect, but I believe the M3 is using a system similar to the M5's to limit the redline revs of a cold engine. However, it is not based on water temperature as is the typical temperature gauge. Rather, it is based on a separate internal gauge that measures the engine oil temperature.HoosierBean
