I think an M3 sedan is fine. Kind of like the family man Sports sedan, but below/different than an M5. I haven't driven an E90 M3, but from driving 335i E90 and E92, its a very similar experience. Just a matter of if you want the extra doors really.

M3 sedan makes a better performance car than a convertible.

Anyways, the way bmw does it, i doubt that there will be a m3 sedan cause

E30 - Coupe only
E36 - Coupe + sedan + convertible
E46 - Coupe + convertible
E90 - Coupe + sedan + convertible
If history serves us right, this should be next for 3 series M.
F30 - Coupe + convertible
Same thing i was thinking after reading the first post

I will be glad is there is only a coupe...Its odd to see a high performance compact car like the M3 in a sedan version. Keep the family sedan version buyers going to the M5.

M3 sedan is a great car. I owned both e92 M3 and E90 M3. Both are excellent cars and your statement that sedan dilutes M3s is way far from truth ...

Or loose them to S4 and C63 because they can't quite afford or don't want something the size of an M5.

but more importantly, the m3 and m5 are completely different cars. someone who wants a m3 sedan should not be forced into buying a m5.

i can see some ppl leaving the m3 brand for a merc. not many, but a sizable amount.

i fall into the niche of ppl who want a m3 or a high performance sports car with functionalities like 4 doors. if they didnt make a sedan, im not going to down grade to a 3 series, and i dont want to upgrade to a m5. imo, thats wasted money because there is no way im going to fully take advantage of the m5 and push it to its limits. hell, i wont be able to do that with a m3 either. if i cannot push a 60-70k car to its limits, there is no way i can push a 90k+ car to its limits. imo that extra 20k is just a complete waste of money.

screw the whole idea about being true to their m or m3 roots. just look at the x5m and x6m? TOTAL deviations from what a m car should be, yet they exist. if they made those travesties, i think they can stomach making a new m3 sedan, which will be exponentially more successful than the x5m and x6m, which are complete flops.
