F30/80 M3 Engineering

The F10 M5 if anything, has just made the life of the engineers at M that much easier when designing the F30/80 M3. All they need to do is apply the same treatment to the regular F30/80 3 series. Stuffs like the rear bolted suspension, active differential, 2 cylinders lopped off the S63TU, multi-piston brakes, etc...Coupled with its inherent lighter weight, the next M3 is bound to be a cracker. I expect Ring time to be around low 7:40s. I am not against re-using what is good in the family for other models so long as they are sound.

Nothing surprising, that is what the 90m3 is-simply a e60 m5 in 3 series skin with 2 cylinders lopped.
