Oh wow, I wasn't aware that you've had a personal up close encounter with an F80 M3 exhaust.

Sound isn't everything, and certainly doesn't justify price gains or drops. Turbo kits/plumbing cost money, and that's certainly going to add to the cost of the car, and all the bigger/stronger drivetrain parts to handle the extra power the car makes cost more too.

This car is going to make like 150lb-ft of torque more than the prior M3 and is going to be a lot faster. I'd pay more for speed in a heartbeat. Much moreso than sound.
