I am going to bet that handling will be better as well as this generation as now the M3 has to raise the bar again due to cars like CTS-V meeting/exceeding the current M3 times on tracks.
I'm sure it will compete. BMW wouldn't screw up the "benchmark" M3 performance wise. BUT, it's not all about that. At least for me. If it was, I'd be driving a 600+ WHP GT-R right now.
