Introduction
Now in its fourth-generation, the BMW M3 has been sold in North America for nearly two decades. In that twenty-year period, enthusiasts have been offered an M3 sedan just once, for a few short years in the late 1990's based on the E36 chassis. With only slight cosmetic changes to differentiate itself, the E36 M3 Sedan looked much like the standard 328i sedan at the time"even though the M3 Sedan hid a powerful inline-6 under its hood and M-tuned suspension and braking components under the fenders. At its introduction, the E36 M3 was touted as the world's fastest sport sedan.

After a model-generation absence, and eight years time, BMW M GmbH is once again introducing the M3 Sedan"on the modern E90 chassis. Following on the heels of the 2008 M3 Coupe, the 2008 BMW M3 Sedan shares nearly all of the same mechanicals. The powerful all-new V-8 powerplant, M-tuned suspension, compound brakes, and options list are nearly identical. The chassis, now with a set of rear doors, sets the two apart.
