On a real note, I think the headlights look so cool how you can see that the projector is visually separate from the "halos". The M3 is going to be awesome.

Also - like it or not, if people think the C-Class is good looking with its bubbly shaped headlights and the massive oblong grille, people will love this car.

I had 2 M cars in a row before, and right now I have a non-M car. I prefer my non-M car to both (by a mile). It’s not a matter of ‘affording’; it’s mostly preference.

The M340i and.upcoming M440i will likely out perform an e9x M3 so why not!? Lol
Because 0-60 defines a M car
Where did I say that? Lol I'm part joking but this car likely has equal or more HP at the wheels in addition to mountains more torque. Coming with a Differential also closes the gap a little too.

No one is mad the M240i outperforms an e46 m3

No performance metric matters other than how much you love driving it.

They're really trying to convince people that M Performance models equal to M GmbH products.

Same goes for AMG, too.

Audi is the only company that got it correct.

You have:
A5
S5
RS5

Keeps it all nice, tidy and clearly defined.

Merc & BMW... AMG(ish) M(ish)... rubbish.

Nice! Will there be an M badge removal option? You wouldn't want to be seen by others with all of the fake M badges on a 340! 😣
