How many of the current E9X...

...owners on this forum are considering moving over to the F8X? Why or why not?

Mein Auto: 2011 E90 M3
I am considering making the move but not for another 2-3 years. Personally I don't want to buy first year of production, I'd rather have most of the kinks worked out when I buy. So I'll be holding onto my M3 for another 2-3 years and have purchased an extended warranty that will cover me of three years.

Why make the move? I think the new M3 is a good looking car. Would I rather see another V8 used, yes. Would I rather see BMW stop growing the physical size of their cars, yes. But overall I think it is an excellent car. It is good to see the weight down a bit... And realistically, I figure after seven years of ownership in my E90 M3, the cost of up keep will likely push me to a new ride. But who knows, if my current M3 holds up as well as it has for the last four years, maybe I'll keep it beyond the extended warranty period...

^^ Good point! Another reason to wait a couple years, to see what the competition pkg and possibly the LCI look like...

Not considering it at this time.

18k miles in 3 years. No problems and a great, fun car.

Plus I don't like the lower revving, fake sound, and the new body designs throughout the range are not to my liking.

All this could change over time; M cars are fantastic and I'll absolutely check them out thoroughly whenever I start shopping.

C63 next for me
The sound is amazing and the torque

New m3 is very good

Not sure about reliability three years later with all the fancy turbos

I think my next ride might be the C63, it has the V8 from the AMG GT with even more torque. Maybe even the new S550 coupe. I guess I am getting old and I think these new Mercs combine performance and luxury like no other.
