Is it just me...but doesn't the F80 M3 profile/silhouette look so very similar to the iconic E46 M3, even with 4-doors? Perhaps it is the YMB color which reminds us all of the LSB. The F82 M4's profile resembles too much of mini-M6 and appears to be too rounded/bloated in certain angles.

Now having said that, and depending on the price difference, I'm still not sure which I would choose.

This video makes the M4 coupe look so much wider than the M3 sedan.

I still favor the M3 sedan though.

It's the large, airy fishbowl like design of the greenhouse. It seems to be a design theme seemingly harking back to the New Class. Even the Lexus IS300 has that design theme.

The figures on the M3/4 page on bimmerpost state 425hp and 3.9 0-60. That's where he got it from

The official tech specs published just a few days ago (including on this website) show 4.1 and 3.9 (dct) as aajami mentioned. I noticed the same discrepancy.

Yup, it's definitely 3.9 for M DCT. This is just going to be amazing!

Can't wait!!!
