Think what you're seeing are those who are lamenting the loss of N/A engines and the sound/engine characteristics of the E46-9x M3s. Most who can afford M3s will jettison their old E9xs and jump on the bandwagon if the F8x is indeed so much better; or if it isn't much better, likely leave the brand altogether for other N/A alternatives.

Where's the days when E46 owners where mocking about the loss of the typical I6 sound when the E9X V8 came out?
