In the end, I would not get an M3 again given the chance.
It's possible, even though we all love the high revving V8, that the new M3 will have so much more torque it will be great. The problems will be: can the turbo lag be minimized and will the new electric power steering suck? If BMW can devise a system with next to no lag ( very hard to do) and the EPS has good feel, then many on this forum will rethink their love of the E9X and go for the new M3/4.
