The M3/M4 is anyway a low production car. Wouldn't it be cheaper for BMW to make the S65 with double injection (port and direct injection), resulting in even more power and higher flat torque band and cylinder deactivation like the new SLK 55 AMG, for even lwer fuel consumption ? That is what Prosche did to their 911 Carrera and Carrera S (991). Well, BMw chose the even cheaper way, new ECU on N55 and call it S55. Just look, the 911 Carrera S is the best 911 ever, minus the lack of manual handbrake and EPS, but that is nothing compared to the lovely NA H6 that compenses these two few demerits.

But what is the BMW Motorsport race program for the new M3/M4 ? DTM ? GT4 ? GT2 ? I hope the rules won't change and they'll be forced to use NA engines.
