I think the 4.4l with similar mods as the 5.0l M5 motor would be neat choice for an M3 Evo or Touring or something. No reason BMW cant put the M treatment to the 4.4l leaving displacement alone...maybe even drop it to a 4.0 liter!
: If it had the 4,4 liter V8 from the 540/740 it would not have a M-engine and would not be a M3 it would be a 340.
: regarding M3 Touring, unfortunately we will never see it. Neither will there be a RS4 sedan. You said "maybe Europe and UK" will see the RS4...we will see it for sure!
: : Uhh, I don't think so. The US won't see the RS4 Audi, maybe Europe & GB, but don't hold your breath on EITHER wagon (touring) car making to the USA. Ever see an M5 touring? Not in the US! See the RS2, EVER? Don't get me wrong, an E46 M3T would be IT, as far as I'm concerned - talk about sport\utility!!!!!!!! The US track record on buying wagons (tourings) is bad, unless you are GMC. How about an M3 Touring with the 4.4V8 from the 540is? Auto or 6-speed-with that much torque,
