Performance-wise this car is competing with the chipped 335i.

The real competition to the new M3 appears to be the new Lexus LF-A which they also showed (500 HP) but no release plans yet.

Oh well ... let's hope the new M3 is not equally disappointing.
Disappointing? Maybe in substance because it really doesn't say much about the car except that its 0-60 performance is less than 4.9 secs. This could mean 4.8 or 4.2.... if 4.2, well that won't be disappointing. Having said that, BMW better watch out because 415-420 hp may not be enough with the competition upping the ante all over the place.
