This question about the M3 delay keeps coming up, so it's about time to lay this question to rest! That is if I don't get laid to rest first.

You may have heard the M3 has the new "M Differential". This is the "difference" between the date an M car is planned for release vs the date it actually is released to customers.

Earlier BMW M cars had limited slip differential with a fixed amount. In the case of the new M3, the M Differential has a "variable slip" from 0 to 100. This means the actual time to release could vary between 0 and one hundred percent longer than the planned release date. Smart thinking on BMW's behalf to design this added saftey margin, don't you think!

I hope that clears up at least one question! Thank you for your time.
