(1) E46 was the best looking 3-series ever. But to each his own.
(2) the factory E92 is not an ugly car. But the more I look at it, the more I yawn
(3) The main reason to buy BMW is all-around performance, so they better not screw the new M3.
Let me say that unlike many guys here who expect miracles from the new M3 I don't. They got 270 RWHP from the 3.2 liter engine. How much do you think they'll get out of the 4 liter? How about (4/3.2) x 270 = 338 RWHP. So let's not get our expectations too high, they can't perform miracles ya know.
I think they will barely pass the 400 BHP number. I will be thrilled if I am wrong.
