If not an inline-6, they should simply drop in the turbo V8 from the M5 - End of topic!
For what itís worth, I am with you on this. One upside to a V6 configuration is that the inherent V design offers the mechanical capacity to achieve a higher rev limit. I hope BMW makes use of this. It would be awesome if they can rev it out to 8000+ rpm.

I'll miss the noise of the I6 thoÖ
BMW don't screw up the M3. K
