The current v8 just drinks too much and wouldn't make my trafficy commute much fun.
I got a friend with a E46 m3 that is debating about picking up a current gen m3 or waiting and he did mention that the horrible gas mileage is the biggest reason for him to wait. But he also likes the thought of getting the last great NA bmw engine.
well i don't think it will be a concern for an M3 driver. As my current '11 335i is doing 19 mpg compared to M3's 16.7 mpg. And that doesn't let me down for not switching to an 13' M3. good news! Save a bit on the piano trim and residual value!
