People who are more interested in "how much" will be happy with the next generation turbo-charged car.
True!

To me the real question is more if a supercharged S65 is a more fun engine to drive then the next turbo 6cyl with a tune will be, if they have about the same hp!! I love the torque of turbo engines but with AWD, not sure how much fun a 500+lb-ft torque RWD M3 would be. I just have a VT1-535 and I'm having a hard time not spinning everytime in 2nd gear with 295s AD08s. But I'm sure M engineers have tought of all that!!
