There's a market for an M Car that actually takes some effort to get speed from. I strongly dislike the nature of the N54/N55, the flat torque curve is truly boring and my grandmother could drive one nearly as fast as most folks.

I'd prefer a lighter, peakier car to a heavier, more torquey car. I hope this is where the M2/M4 split lands us, with the choice to pick between two different flavors, not simply the same flavor served up twice.
