I personally love high revving motors for daily drivers. That's why I traded the GTI in for an e90 M3 last week. Was going to wait until the GTI's warranty ran out next year, but BMW stopped producing s65 engined M3 sedans.
The new turbo M3 will be great I'm sure, but they won't work all the bugs out until it has been in production for a couple of years.
