I also heard a rumor that the next gen M3 will have a V8. This is stupid IMO(might as well go for the M5)but you can't squeeze blood from a stone. I think they hit the HP ceiling on the current power plant.
I know that many of you waiting for the new M Coupe have questions regarding production timeframe. Tom confirmed that S.O.P. is indeed this month. The numbers are very limited, though... On the order of a couple of dozen vehicle per month for the USA for the initial months of production...
