It's the same chorus every new model cycle. Yes, you're so hardcore for still liking the M3 that was for sale when you turned 16 better than the new one. Yes, we get it.
But aside from the grill (and heinous BMW performance accessories), I have a feeling that this will be a monster of a car -- I think it will have all of the awesome aspects of the new M5 without many of the drawbacks. And you can get it RWD with a 6-speed manual.
For what it's worth, I have no real complaints about the current M3 other than the grille (which I'm sure there will be 1,001 aftermarket fixes for within a month of customer deliveries). Agree it will be a monster
I originally hated the F80 M3, both in looks and lack of 'rawness'... until I drove it on track/at speed and an M4 convertible on normal roads. I'm guessing I'll feel the same way about this one- it'll take a few years to appreciate the design and overlook the generational weight gains and unnecessary features.
The dark green and blue colors look great.
Every noticed how M3/M4 have quite 'meaty' tires? Like pretty big sidewalls for this type of car. I wonder why? They're not that low profile.

I mean, plenty of Boxters come with 20s. They should look absurd, but instead they just look big.
