RPM at highway speeds

I was told that the M3 E90 rev's at 4000rpm while at 70mph in highest gear.
I am looking to buy a 335d or M3, still gathering information

I'm at about 3k rpm at 70 in the 6MT. 4k seems pretty high, even for a 3.85:1 rear end.

Interesting...I have a D900-40M installed by the PO, myself. So is the difference in RPM at 70 due to MT vs. DCT... I guess. Never thought about this before...

Thank you guys, I am looking to change to a M3 or 335D, the 4K as i read in a car magazine scared me! 2K7 seems reasonable.
Why M3 or 335D, I have a 16 mile commute but it is stop and go! the 335D's torque would probably give more satisfaction, but then look at the M3, it gives satisfaction even when you'r enot driving it.
