Hmmm... Come to think of it, maybe one of the reasons why they're not building an E46 M3/4 has to do with the fact that it would steal M5 sales... :dunno:

So is an M5 an oxymoron? If not, why are 4 doors allowed on a M5 and not on a M3. Remember, the 6-series (currently absent) is the coupe variation of the 5-series. By your logic, the only legitimate Ms are the M3 and M6.

And, of the E36 generation M3s, the M3 sedans are lighter and more rigid than the coupes.

Why the 2 door elitism?
We kinda' have gone through this one before, and you know what I think about the whole "sports sedan" thing, and how that makes the M5 unappealing to me (unquestionably the best "sedan" ever IMO), etc.

However, this time around, I think it's more of a biz decision... I think the E46 M3/4 could steal M5 sales (when the E36 M3/4 was around, the M5 wasn't), since the HP difference is MUCH smaller than the price difference (edit: 20-25K? Heck, you can almost buy a strip 325i with that money)... ;)

Who doesn't think THIS is hot? If you say no, you're lying.

That is hot. But then again, is there such thing as a non-hot BMW? (Just teasing ya! :p You don't have to answer that... :D)
