So now, the 3 series, which has since the e30 been a mix of 2 and 4 door models will be exclusively 4 door. The 6 series which has been exclusively 2 doors will now be available in both 2 and 4 door. I know we've been bitching about it for the last year or so but it still annoys me. I can't believe this is BMW's idea of a cohesive marketing strategy. Changing the name of the model that has the greatest recognition among consumers, has a hugely positive reputation, and is the clearest representation of your brand is very risky. I may end up buying an M4, depending on how good it is, but I'll always find that name annoying. What was the point?

I don't think I'm buying the next version
I've owned 4 M3s, and loved them all
But if I did, first mod would be yanking off the m4 logo, and replacing it with a good old m3 one

I think they are fools
The m3 is one of those legendary names, like the 911 etc
A lot of car manufacturers would kill to have something similar
So to relegate it to the worst selling body shape of the model is just pure lunacy

I agree. If anything it makes more sense for the M3 to remain a coupe and the M4 to be a sedan.
