There's only a slight difference in wheelbase of a few inches, and less than 100lbs lighter.

One is a sedan, one is a coupe.

I understand that there will be people that will be upset about losing the M3 badge on the coupe (I get that), but clearly by the current standards between M5 & M6 there is no significant difference between the 2 models.

Coupe is always more expensive than the sedan even as a "3". So what's the problem here?

And this is all just still rumor.

why everyone is so upset about this.
And it took them 4 generations and about 20 years to figure this out?
Thats like saying, you know what?
Let's stop this whole inline six and rear wheel drive stuff as well
Tradition isnt always a bad thing
