Ignoring that this is a generalization with no statistical data, please consider that they made quite a few. Many times, people purchase cars they cannot afford, especially when they are the "hot" car at the time.

I love mine and will keep it until I get the G80.
I meant to say they made way more F8Xs than previous generations and a lot of them are/were leased.

If you find M3s under or near 40k they will likely have:
- sunroof
- high mileage
- dirty carfax
- no options (no LED, adaptive, HUD)
- undesirable color combo (black/black, Austin yellow, sakhir)

I have driven all the M3s extensively except the E30. And this is the best one in my opinion. For every 1 thing the previous generations did good I can find 10 other things the f80 does better. Personally I like the active sound in it, and my weekend is a 458 with tubi exhaust.

e49 M3 has a horrible rasp to it. I do not like the sound of that engine at all and its still popular.

Omg. Who cares if an M car depreciates during its run?? If that's an indication of how a car will be remembered, then everything BMW M division has ever produced is garbage, other than the 1M and M3 CSL

Sakhir is undesirable? I think it looks fantastic and was my second choice behind YMB if I wasn't able to find one in my search.

Maybe he was referring to Austin Yellow with Sakhir interior.

Coming from 2 previous E46 M3s, I'll chime in as I'v had my M4 for over a year now.

This platform is one of the most good looking in the M Category for years. Personally, I love everything about the looks/lines of the F80/F82. Bold, swooping curves and presence. What angered me about the previous two generations of M3 is that other than the Quad exhausts and a few M badges, it didn't stand out massively. * In Pure Stock Form *

The F80/F82 is the first one to grab the attention of tuners along with the F10 M5. The turbo platform is just so easy to get power from and you can finally run with the AMGs on the highway. The previous generations are just so hard to get power out of.

The noise from the S55 I will agree isn't as glorious as the E92 V8, but that is to be expected. That S65 is one of the best sounding engines.

It looks like many publications / outlets are already trying to set up a narrative where this generation of a M cars was a huge disappointment. Which is funny since the M3/4 essentially beat every car in its class that was thrown its way (save for MAYBE the Giulia towards the end).
Haters gonna hate.

But you can't deny that any way you cut it, the F8x is a great-looking car that is awesome to drive.

I think initial reviews will be negative but eventually over time. People will respect and love them more.

If not, eff them

This car straight up lays pipe on the competition.

Not exactly true...a lot of us came of driving age as Japanese GTs began to rule the day in the late 70s/early 80s (Celica, Datsun/Nissan Z's, etc.). Having owned an A50, A60, and MkII the car I really wanted was an MKIV - but it was way too expensive.

And for the ones listed with 75k+ miles, seriously who will risk buying a BMW with that many miles. If you are in the market for a clean under 50k M3/4, it will still cost you above 40k at a minimum. And don't post what you see on the web. It's a whole different story in person.
you sir...are correct.

Any model of car that gets a few years old will have examples of high milage, salvage title, beaten up versions somewhere in the country at places with names like The Devil's Sorcerer Auto. This is in no way indicative of the car itself. Just be happy you don't drive a domestic, where one is already at every stoplight, but once the model ages the floodgates really open.
