In my opinion there is nothing to suggest that the turbo engine in the next M3 will be more outstanding than the current NA engine, which is going to lead to a lot of disappointment on the part of die-hard M buyers. What is the big deal with a I-6 that can make 450 HP? There are a number of cars that far exceed that already. Everyone knows that it take only a few grand and you can make 450-500 hp with the N54 engine. The prospect of spending 75-80k (likely will be more) on a new M3, only to have you ass handed to you by another car that cost the same or less, is not appealing at all.
