I think though these other cars are getting much better, you don't buy a M3 or Mustang for the same reasons. Also, I think even with "only" 450bhp we must remember the next M3 will be lighter and have much more torque.
The bottom line is no M3 has disappointed and I dont think the next one will let people down.
