Remember, with cheaper parts comes louder road noise, humming and other annoying things that the M3 currently does not have.

If they do manage to lose 220+ pounds, they would have to use MORE carbon fiber... More CF = more $$ I will take a bump in HP over the drop in weight.
I would rather have both. lol For the money though I would rather have a 75-80k m3 that is 3500lbs with 470+hp and one that is 90k-95k+ and 3300 lbs. I must admit money is a factor to me.
