They confirmed the I6 for the upcoming M3... Are we certain it's the same for the M4?
I highly doubt it.
In fact, there's no way they would do that to the "M4".
Building F80 M3 is already a big development expense, they won't divide the M3/M4 into two different layout/trim. It simply doesn't make sense in their marketing/financial standpoint.

I'd like to hear more high RPM scream!

I'm in the "sounds like crap" camp. It also sounds like they're shifting at about 5k rpms too. Those of us with an E9x in our garage that think this sounds like ass, it's because we hear the S65 every day (most of us), and every day I think good gawd this thing sounds amazing. So yes, the E9x owners think it sounds like crap... because it does. Hey, I just farted and it sounded better than that exhaust note.

Of course, this is still pre-production so sound can change.

Not all of us think it sounds like crap. I happen to like it.
Perhaps you've never owned a 6cyl ///M before? This may be why the appreciation fades with those who have only known the V8 ///M

Very true!

We've gone from loving the inline 6 of the e46 m3, hating on the v8, then loving the v8 and hating on the inline 6.

Dogs and cats, living together, mass hysteria!
The E46 M3 exhaust note always sucked, IMO and that of MANY BMW guys I know. The V8 was always awesome.

I don't even know what to say to such an asinine thing. I guess every person has their opinion. And I should point out 3-4 people =/= many. I've never heard a simple person claim the E46 M3 exhaust note sucked. You, are a first.

+1000

Of course the V8 sounds awesome but, the E46 was awesome as well. That rasp of the E46 is phenomenal! Heck, my 92' 325I sounded good for what it was... It's silly to compare the two exhaust notes anyway. I guess if you don't like the new M3 and you want a good exhaust note, go get you a Mustang.

and are you sure they are "BMW guys", sounds like they may be E9x guys... BMW as a whole has way more "raspy" Inline engines than they do V8's and V10's.

OK, first of all, I have close experience with the sound of E46 M3's, in anger, from the outside, no less. I used to be pretty active in autox in '03-'05 and worked the cones like everyone else and had M3's go past pretty close by with the engines revving pretty high. Autox also made it pretty obvious that the cab is an absolute fat pig (as is the E93 M3), but that's another story.

When I say many, I mean over a dozen BMW fans enthusiastic enough to go out and autocross their cars. Even a couple of M3 owners disliked the rattling sound of their own, shiny, new M3. That's not to say the engine didn't perform very well.

I also know a couple of dozen long-time BMW guys from BMW forums who feel the same way. And I should add that a many of them owned the car, and in fact one who owned one new recently bought one again used because he likes the car - but still thinks it sounds terrible.

You guys can say what you want. I am not making this stuff up. In fact, the comments have been so consistent over a decade and from virtually everyone I know, that I thought it was a pretty solid concensus. I am frankly shocked to hear you guys seem suprised or offended.

To each his own. I can sit here and tell you and can be backed up by many who owned both, that I will take a 987S over any BMW M3 and not think about twice. And I did. I passed on buying an M3 and got Boxster S three years ago. I am sure many will disagree. And let me tell you, I LOVE BMW's.

I got one of the very first ZHP's and scooped up one of the last NA I-6's. They are not raspy and sound awesome (the 328 is too quiet, but not raspy). The E36 M3 did not sound raspy either. If you like it, go nuts.

My first car was a very used 190E 2.6 with an I-6, and that thing was smooth as silk all the way to redline (I know, I bet that was the only MB revved to redline). So I-6's do not have to be raspy.

My 16-year-old says it sounds like a Honda with a bees-in-the-coffee-can exhaust. I can't say he's wrong.
