If BMW can maintain the exact same power delivery in the tri turbo 6, and bring the weight down in the next gen, Im sure it will be nothing short of phenomenal.

BMW, I hope you have learned a lesson with the 1M.

People just don't understand that BMW, and particularly the M-Division, are simply better than everyone else. They're the Apple of automobiles. Other manufacturers can try all they want to compete with them, but they're so far ahead of the competition the advantage is insurmountable. Just when MB or Audi or {giggle} Lexus puts up a challenge to BMW, the Roundel throws down the gauntlet with a more advanced version of the car the competition was trying to match.

The M3 is the iPhone/iPad/iPod of cars, it cannot be beaten or duplicated. I'm sorry, everyone else just has to settle for 2nd place... forever!

LMAO!

Seriously though, have there been reviews (from respected publications) that have put the new Merc and Audi competitors out on top? If not, and we are seeing all the major review results, then this is awesome.

Both are nice cars ... then the ///M3 is King and always will be

Once you drive one you never will be satisfied with anything less.

Thanks for posting this fine video clip

I'm proud to own an M. I'm also sure that the new M3 is going to be epic. BMW doesn't go backwards. They sometimes start in funny places (i.e., X5M, X6M), but they always improve every generation.

I had the opportunity to test drive the RS5 from the local Audi Dealership, there has already been a handful of owners which had their cars delivered as well.

Honestly speaking, the RS5 does not give you the Magical Feeling one gets when we hope into either an M3 or the C63 AMG.

Im no fantastic driver, Im just an average driver next door. But my feel is, spending this kinda money, I would either go with the M or the AMG.

Past: E46 M3 S54 3.2L I6 vs. W203 C55 M113 5.5L V8 = M3 winner
Currrent: E92 M3 S65 4.0L V8 vs. W204 C63 M159 6.2L V8 = M3 winner
Future: F32 M3 S55 3.xL I6 Turbo vs. W205 C63 M278 5.5L V8 Turbo = M3 winner?

Red calipers? You can get brakes painted from factory? That's pretty cool.

I never understood the DD argument. If the BMW has more room, gets better mpg, handles better, and has plenty of torque down low. How is the C63 a better DD???

It has quick and usable power immediately off the line and you don't have to watch the tachometer to make sure you don't go passed the redline. The huge torque is fun especially down low. The exhaust note is also raucous fun.

That has a definite appeal.

Having come out of a C63 into a M3 I am enjoying the hell out of the explosively and freely revving S65 V8. It's a different beast and I like it but don't discount the everyday fun of a large displacement engine.
