V6? ;)

The M3/M4 are lighter than the M5, so I wouldn't be surprised to see some of their acceleration numbers (between certain speeds) quicker than the M5.

BMW isn't "protecting" its M5.

Ha ha... I've driven just about all of the Gallardo models (including the 550-2 Balboni), and the Aventador Roadster on the street and racing circuit, I've never driven the older stuff.

She's a trooper and completely gets it (but she still doesn't understand how much guys can like cars). That said, the bed was still warm last night.

My review of the 2015 BMW M4 (street and track)

BMW flew me to Portugal last week to wring out its new M4. While there, I ripped up a few canyons and hit 165 mph on the highway (lawyers made me pull that last part from my story).

The F15 uses BMW's modular "X for all" platform. It will be shared with the brand's other SUVs and likely the upcoming Rolls-Royce SUV, if the Brits ever admit they are making one. ;)
