I'm sure that the next gen M3/M4 even in its stock ~400 HP form will have advantages over the GT-R (i.e. subjective styling, daily driving comfort, 6MT!, fit/finish, etc...). Furthermore, the HP will most likely be plentiful/cheap and the power plant will probably be smooth as silk, in typical BMW fashion. All this is just a counterpoint to those already complaining about the demise of the V8.
I agree with you totally and all of that is great. My only point is that there are some subjective things about the V8 that I will miss, like the sound and all of the revs (among other things).

Planning to get the last production 2013 E92 M3 doing ED.
I am sure that the Fxx M's will be more powerful that the current E9x M's. But there is something about that V8 engine.

There is, and it happens at 8300RPM.

Interesting. How are you going to secure the last production 2013?

Lol. Never mind. I thought you meant literally the last one, but I am guessing you mean last production model...

and the 30 round one two. Great shooting and accurate sidearm. I used to carry a Glock 21 as a duty gun but the FN is such a pleasure to shoot. Very little recoil and tiny groups.

Agree..the FN was specfically designed for close quarter defense..I fired one and was blown away at how light it was even with a fully loaded 20 round clip.

For what it's worth, it's called a magazine, not a clip. Rappers call it a clip. Unless of course it's an M1 and you are actually using a stripper clip. But the FN fires rounds held in it's magazine.
