Sometimes the maturity of this forum in comparison to so many others just makes me want to weep with joy.

I will stir the pot, and cast my vote for Tuflo's traded in M235 by a nose!

If I have to answer the actual question (hey, it's the internet!) I'd go with the M3, but they are both beautiful.

Not bashing here.

Have you driven it? Is the turbo lag really that significant? I'll probably get booed out of the forum, but my daily driver/family schepper is equipped with Volvo's T6 turbo...

Need one of each.

One for day to day driving around; traffic, errands, work, kid shuttling, etc.

And one for DRIVING!

Now we can debate which trans for which scenario. :-)

My admittedly limited DCT experience (two drives) is that it isn't as smooth or rewarding when driving at mellower speeds on public roads.

It's the perception of the coupe being cooler and more desirable.

I'd bet a good German lager that the M3 costs more to produce.

Back to the beet farm for you, naysayer! ;)

But they DID reserve an internal code for just such a wagon, and the Germans don't mess around with things like that.

M3 Wagon?!

February's Car & Driver article notes "If M builds a wagon, it'll be F81".

Is there hope?

Or is this just nonsense?
