If people don't care why not keep the Coupe as an M3 and the Sedan as the M4 (with all the room in the world for the car seats)?
That just makes no sense...
Everyone is all in a huff but all that we know right now is:
IF AND ONLY IF they actually do make a final decision to rename the 3-series coupe and vert to 4-series
... THEN the new M variant will be M4 (unless of course the M division decides to deviate from the naming convention). We dont even know for sure if the 3 coupe and vert will actually become the 4 series.
This may not make any sense but i have a strange feeling that the M3 will remain sedan, coupe, and vert. At the same time I have a feeling we will still see an M4... In Gran Coupe form with an uprated engine.
