it's going to be different, but i find it hard to believe that lots of people are going to complain about an m3 with e46 weight and 400 lb/ft torque @ < 2000rpms.
And also, good luck touching a C7 for anything less than $70k right now which puts it right alongside the M3/M4 price wise. I don't care what the base price is, no one is getting them for $55k. I agree with your statement completely. I am definitely not going to complain about a car that is putting up the spec numbers we are being shown.
