Give me a better power to weight ratio, and better efficiency over HP; much more rewarding to drive than a 500HP pig with the range of a motorcycle.

For current M3 coupe/vert owners, there may be a silver lining in the M4 moniker cloud. As soon as the badge thieves wise up that the M4 badge is the hawt commodity, those of us with and E92M3 may not have too much to worry about with the ///M3 badges on the cars.

Then all BMW would need to do is change the M4 to something else with each successive generation to keep the badge thieves off balance.
