The M340i and.upcoming M440i will likely out perform an e9x M3 so why not!? Lol
Because 0-60 defines a M car

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.

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.

A sentiment sadly drowned out by the hunger for autonomous driving, virtual assistants, and again 0-60 times.

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

Same goes for AMG, too.
