I will buy the M4 most likely but will also keep the M3.

Since my F10 M5, E90 M3, and 7 series are all four door sedans, it time to add a daily drivable coupe to the fleet.

I assume the M4 will be like a baby M5. Less raw than the current M3 but more comfortable and torquey.

im making the move....already parted out my car. Will most likely get a sedan this time around vs the coupe. The lack of torque and low MPG doesnt do it for me anymore

I will get the competition / csl edition of the M4 when that comes out. Overall improvements and enhancements should be worked in by then. I won't get first year, there's always issues, and with the tri-turbo, who knows how big they'll be.

Is yours a trick question; as there has been no previous M4 to enable a "next M4" anytime soon?
If by "next M4" you're referring to the second generation M4 that will start being designed in 2018, available ~ 2022...

I'll probably wait until the second or third model year but yea I'll probably get one.

That is if I haven't decided to move to a GT3 by then.

I'll wait for the bugs and LCI and then get a 4 door. I'm tired of the hassle that comes with a coupe in terms of passenger accommodations....but I'll be hanging on to my V8 screamer as well.

+1 but even with that said, I'll probably move my wife out of the 335 coupe and into an F M3 when her lease is up.

Have to see how it really plays out. It wont be until 2015/2016 for me anyway. I never buy the first production year of a car, and I usually wait until mid-cycle when some refresh items and packages come out.

Definitely on my list though. Only thing I am not happy about is the name change. The original M3 was a coupe after all, and the name is legendary. Too many models in the line up now that don't offer major differences, especially with this new gran coupe thing.

BMW usually tests all new technology in the more expensive 5 & 7 series before it hits the 3 series. And with the 3 series being the cash cow, BMW can't afford large scale quality issues and usually gets it right the first time.

Hopefully this answers the OP question of whether I'm getting the new M4. Without a doubt

+1 buying the M4 but not the 1st debut production. Planning to keep my E92 M3.

Whats with not wanting the first production year?

06 M5 - No Problems at all
LCI came out in 09 right?
09 M3 - No problems at all
LCI came out in 11
12 M5 - No problems at all
LCI?

I dont know why everyone loves the LCI version but to me its not worth the 2 year wait.
