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 probably a track star tool, but that doesn't really...

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.

Because I've always wanted an M3, and I'm not getting any younger.

Doesn't make any sense.

Which is a big part of the fun! ;)

I suspect if you're ordering, you could delete the leather component of the Premium Package, but I doubt you'd get any financial consideration.

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?

This month's Car & Driver said something to the effect of "will need to stay under $65k", so I'll fearlessly predict $69.9.

That's without paint, or any other superfluous options, of course!

Stick or auto?

If stick, no regrets.

If auto, you may now officially begin the period of regret.

Never have I regretted selling a car as much as my 128 6MT!
