We can't fully say anything about the M3 yet because it hasn't come out yet. What is on paper may not necessary be the same in real life.

IMO, the torque factor is not that wowsing, but for it appears to be an engine that likes to rev.

Estimated price at 65-70K fully loaded, I think I would opt for a new Cayman S or a used 997S instead.

I thought I wanted one... and then read 13MPG EPA city... which means gas station fillups twice a week or more for me. No thanks. I'll keep my 335. One of the great things about the 335 vs. my v8 S4 -- I see the gas station less. $$$s are not the issue, it's the annoyance of the constant fill-up. The 3-series (incl. M3) share a gas tank... so less mileage = less range.
