I didn't say that there were no E30 or E46 M3's produced. I simply stated that BMW didn't produce an E30 or E46 M3 Sedan!

I own a 2004 M3 Coupe, so I have first-hand knowledge that E46 M3's were actually produced (between 2001 and 2006)...

+1 to this...Exactly what you mean.

I'm with jack1526, I like having a sedan and having one with the M3's power would be a true joy.

Like many others, I believe the M3 Sedan is the perfect balance between practicality and "joy" as bmw would say. I never get tired of reading "For insurance puroposes, we call it a sedan," that always made me smile. BMW, I hope your reading this, and monitoring this poll. Please let this be a hoax to build up more demand for the Sedan and not force us to go GT. Please, we dont enjoy these Hitler tactics, forcing us to conform. We arent asking too much, are we? Considering your sedans sell pretty damn well.

Its safe to say this is how the majority of us feel.

nobody can know for sure that there will be no f30 m3. when the e90's first came out in 2006 they said that the e46 m3 will be the last, so you never now.

BTW, I'm still hoping this article is false. I won't believe until or unless it happens. Sometimes, the sources used by magazines aren't reliable.

Another thing, who voted for option 2 ''Yes. GT sounds really good.''

Hehe...thanks for the 'detailed' answer.Being honest, I would prefer a 3 series station wagon over a 3 series GT or better yet, a X5 or a X3. X3 is based on a 3 series chassis so I dont think they need a GT.

I LUV the M3 sedan. If this is true, not f30 M3 sedan, I may have to start saving for a 2011 M3 sedan. I love my e90 with Dinan stage 2. Quick enough to run with M3s or AMG E63 in the real world, on real roads.

You know what would be really fun... an M3 wagon! I really would like to pick up a 535xi wagon with the N54 engine, and Dinanize the engine and suspension! Or maybe a CTS-V wagon!!

Yeah, BMW thinking up a Sports Van. Holy hell, but those two words do not mix. I really hope these articles are false. but so many articles about screwed up design plans... i fear whatever happens we will get stuck with some kind of wack ass shit to degrade the company's image and really give people the right to talk shit about BMW's.

Think about it right, what am i supposed to say when people ask me why would bmw build a van? my answer would have to be: because they are whores who no longer have any self respect.

Don't do this. Don't do any of this. The E39 only just turned ten two days ago.
