I actually think the M4 will be the high end coupe everyone has been wanting while the F80 will be a tamer version. A smaller M5 lets say but lighter too.

I have no evidence other than BMW really spent big on the M6 compared to the M5 and the M5 continues down a different path.

I just cannot see how the car gets lighter by all the claimed experts when BMW carbon fiber technology is a long way away.

Only way I see it is an aluminium frame like Jag but that totally changes the way the car is built and I cant see that changing either.
