In Reply to: ///M Wagon anyone? posted by Rick Key on October 18, 1999 at 14:56:04:
: With the wagon chassis actually being stiffer than the sedans anyone willing to go the wagon route instead of the sedan? From what I have seen/read/heard that seems to be a very real possibility ... initially an M3 Coupe followed by cabriolet and wagon (sedan later???). Possibly an Evo version after a couple of years with a 340-360hp V8 (not much more power??? can you say torque?). An M version of the ti with a smaller displacement 6 (2.5L) also seems like a real possibility in or around 2002. Does this scenario square with what you have seen/read/heard???
no V8, no V8, no V8 in the E46 body
I dunno what the engine for the M compact will be...let me do some digging, I was interested in that model before also
