Not sure what you are hoping it will offer - a little more grunt than the current model?

I think your baseline is a little off - the new M3 will be an evolution of the current model, with a more powerful but less thrilling engine, and hopefully better handling and less weight. They may even get the brakes right who knows. In no way will it be a competitor to the (modified or stock) GT-R, not having nearly the same power or grip.

The good part of course will be that it will cost *significantly* less than a GT-R, even fully loaded.

You should still be looking towards Porsche? The new GT3 perhaps? (Which I think will have the adjustable suspension and the optional DCT).
