Yes, the V8 of the previous generation is amazing and the throttle blip on downshift is like a drug but I'm sure this car will have some personality traits that will make it loved by many. For example the pop on upshift my 335 w/Mperf exhaust is awesome and I know the F10 M5 guys enjoy this as well. I think it's a nice blend of the E46 metallic sound and late model N55's... A set of DP's and an aftermarket exhaust will just make this thing even better. Just my two cents
Here is my view:

A. The stock exhaust does not sound great.
B. Exhaust is probably the easiest part of the car one can improve, and this is one area that aftermarket manufacturers do a great job at, so I don't think this will be too much of a problem.
C. The nimble, lightweight, torquey feeling of the new car will be what I will love about. In my mind, it's an E46 with the F10 technology gadgets. Cannot wait to get mine.
