It will be very interesting to see how the upcoming Lexus RCF stacks up against this new BMW M4 in terms of appearance and performance.

Well done to BMW for choosing handling dynamics over power. With those priorities the M3/M4 will surely be the purists choice every time.

I really like the design of the M3 sedan this time round. Looks like a proper compact M5.

With the outgoing generation I always thought the Coupe clouded the sedan more and I like the Sedan, So now when I say M3 am refering to one thing one model so yes..I can now say I like the M3 and the sedan!

Although the latest F series hasn't grown on me yet I own many other BMWs. From an 87 e30 coupe to e46 sedan m sport incl. e93 335i m sport and e92 m3 with a 6 speed manual. Only car missing that I'd like to add to the collection is an e36 m3. I've never complained about their interiors as I think they are very appealing for their time such as darth vader seats on the e36 era but the seat design on the new F3x seems to be very familiar to audi's rs4 optional seats bottom end with a mix of c63/rs4 head rests. I am sure the car is going to perform well no doubt but doesn't anyone else think that the seats do not do justice to a new M car?

Brutal no doubt about that, with those numbers it will make some serious problems to a cars with no back seats and trunk.

Undoubtedly, it remains the king in this segment. However, I just wish the designs and interiors weren't so boring!

It may be king now but there is some stiff competition coming from the western hemisphere. Cadillac ats-v may have what it takes to leave BMW chasing for a decade.

"leave BMW chasing for a decade! I don't mean to be rude but that did make me laugh! The US may be the only country in the world where that comparison might stand but in europe Cadillacs/Vette's etc don't even come into the equation regardless of how good they are getting. Maybe this might start to change over the next decade who knows. My american friends have a hard time excepting this too. The only other car maker I see as an upcoming threat to BMW/Merc/Audi in the segement is Jaguar and that is all. M cars are not just king now they have always been king.

Nice - very nice. But I will be very interested to see how this will stack up against next RS4, the next AMG class and - it had to happen - the next Lexus IS-F. That will likely have a 5.0L n/a V8: more power than the BMW, probably the same torque...but likely a fair bit more weight... :-(.

After all, all those engines will be down-sized man ... this is just a revolution period, next generation of M3, the BMW will be ahead of all those..

I agree. AMG and Audi like BMW have gone forced induction for new regulations and c02 emissions. The motor on the new m3 doesn't look that different to the N54 in my 335i. Looks like they have just fiddled with it and increased the boost. I'm sure there are more differences but in the real world I'm sure they won't differ that much. The rev band looks very similar and torque levels between the cars are not massive as my n54's torque with one ecu upgrade has gone from 400 to 475nm. Almost like this new M3. The 335i won't handle like the new M3 but on the straight I'll have a good chance as the 335i surpasses my e92 m3 on the straight, which I now sold. I love my BMWs but I have so many it's time to say goodbye to the BMW era by finalising one last addition to the garage: an e30 m3 and start looking for a Porsche 993 Turbo.

I am also waiting for the next RS4 to see how it will compare to the M3. Worst off if it takes the current RS engine goin g around of 331Kw in the RS5 etc, BMW will be in trouble, it will have to provide an M Performance Package or something along those lines.

I find it amusing that it will be the Japanese Lexus that will now be the last bastion of the N/A V8 performance compact saloon. This is one thing I hope the Japanese don't stray away from.
