The E46 M3 sold almost 2x the E92/3 M3 numbers in the USA alone, and that was without a Sedan. Considering the global economic meltdown, it is understandable but nevertheless disappointing.
I think that this will be the last of the "affordable" M3 as BMW will continue to push the M3/M4 to a price bracket where it simply does not belong, IMO. The closer the M3 gets to the 911 in price the less attractive it will become.
