The brave S65 M3. A bold move for M, a hulky V8 snorting and ready to go.. Cut down in it's prime by Orwellian Marxist command economy DIKTATES.
It knows the bell tolls for it, yet it still has a few months left to live. As Davy Crockett said "Damn you all to hell, I'm going to Texas." Our M3 says to "Eco-watermelons" Damn you all to hell I'm going to 8400 RPM'S!
As goes our choices to DECIDE what we want to drive and how much we are willing to pay. So goes our Liberty. We are becoming sheep, bleating for security. The nanny state knows best.
Good night sweet prince, you will be sorely missed.
Calm yourself. You're going to like the new M3, as it will be better than the current model.
Strictly from a personal viewpoint, I love the noises the current V8 makes, especially as it approaches red line, but then again, I have always loved the sonorous snarl made by BMW straight sixes (with the single exception of the asthmatic rasp made by the stock E46 M3 that graced our garage), so I'm looking forward to the new one with great interest.
PS - Hey, if you don't like the new one, just keep giving loving care to your current car. If 8400 rpm is what floats your boat, you're already in automotive nirvana, so why worry about what's next?
