W/ the E90 M3 yet to be released I among many other people wouldn't know. However it can be assumed that it will be a different experience, and probably the more sporty between the two given the size. We do know that the E90/1/2/& 3 will all use a variation of the M5's 5.0 V-10, basically two less cylinders. Same engine. Perhaps an M3 concept will make an appearence in Geneva and we shall know some interesting info then.

the M3 sedan will be like the M5's baby brother in my opinion. But if I had 100k I'd buy the M3 over the M5 because it is smaller and sportier. Most people think the M5 is the "true" beast. Afterall, the 3-series is the entry level BMW.

I would prefer the newer M3 over the M5, for I feel M3 it would be better and fun car to drive vs the M5, and maybe at a third of the cost less.
