i don't see what the big deal is about losing the M3 nameplate for the coupe, u'll still have the m3 sedan. i mean it's all about $$ anyway and the whole renaming structure just means more $$ for the 4er, just like a5/s5 over a4/s4.
i for one dont care - give me the m3 sedan; i need the ability to put a car seat in the back anyway. and i'll prob get the same engine, same tranny, same suspension (hell, prob even same weight), same LSD, same brakes.... for 12% cheaper.... if the new m3 is going to start at 62-3K, i'm sure the m4 will start at 70K.....
