I'm also curious as to where the price will be. I paid about $53k for my E46 M3 in '01 and about $70k for my E92 M3 in '09.......about $17K in 8 years.....not huge but still i wonder how much higher they will bring a 3 series car.....hmmmm
Thanks. It is fun to wait and see, but also fun to have a bit of a crystal ball as well. I'll certainly continue to enjoy the heck out of my E92 M3 for a long time also. Not that I care enormously about the 0-60 but do keep in mind the current car has already put down a 4.1. The new car, being turbo charged with way more torque (and wider tires) will be putting down significantly more torque to the wheels than the existing car.
