regardless, with three turbos, the tuning potential will be immense, if you're looking for that hp/tq boost.

When I purchased my 2013 M3, I was looking for the total package. If I wanted to go in a straight line and burn it off the line, I might have purchased something like a Ford GT 500. I wanted a car that was solid, balanced, powerful, good resale value and lots of class. M3 has it all in my opinion. It's certainly not a cheap car but it has a good history from what I've read. I also wanted one of the last V-8's!
Enjoy your M3!

Even with "only" 450hp, switching to a turbo 6 is going to provide a LOT more torque than the current m3 and will likely be significantly faster.

So, the computer has to retard that power so you don't put yourself into a ditch. The higher horsepower is great for better 0-150 mph times but most of us don't do that.

Ultimately I agree with Nine that I'm looking for balance. I wouldn't mind some more low end torque but I am really into an overall fun to drive and superbly handling car. If the next M3 does 0-60 in 4 seconds and the 1/4 in 12.2-12.4 seconds then that is plenty of fun for me so long as it also handles really well.

If the next C AMG is fun as well I will give that strong consideration as well. But I'm no longer after pure crazed power like I would have been at a much younger age. A 662 hp Mustang doesn't entice me.
+1 it is about balance.
