Anyone who is a true BMW enthusiast is seriously relieved to know that the V6 will not be a reality.
A V6 goes against everything BMW has said since it's first inline six was introduced in 1933. They have stated the benefits of inline-sixes compared to v-sixes over and over. I for one am very happy to know that the F30 M3 will still use an inline six engine as opposed to a V6.
It is all bad enough that they are going to turbos for the M-engines, if they went to turbocharged V-sixes I would be very disappointed. I am going to keep my E90 M3 forever since it is the last NA M car. I won't rule out the fact that I may have an F30 M3 in the future if I feel the new Turbocharged M Inline-six is a good enough engine.......I know the car itself will be good.
