The base M3/M4 has 473 hp and 406 ft lbs... those figures are way too close for the M340i.
Agreed.

BUT, I just think the M-performance buyers are just different than full-on M buyers…and this applies across their lines.

M-performance should be able to have similar power, but more street tuned. That would open up M to be more track focused/lighter/purer.

Maybe this just applies to me…that's how I've felt about it after my M50i engines. Amazing power to drive, and still super comfortable with the family.

the more gears the more times you get to hear engine revving noises

so for me at least 8 speed

Hmmm
Well….
I'm more about throttle control, so don't care too much about shifting often, which is why I love that S58:
Grunt in any gear
Also a fan of winding it out in 2nd and going right into 4th and chillin'

(This is not a manual vs auto thread, so, no offense)

was racing someone up a steep hill on the weekend, it was accelerating in 6th gear (m340i touring) and when i saw 100mph i backed out as didn't want to go to jail. when i looked back the honda civic was gone. but yeah more gears means more rev.

though i just had a thought. i have a 300 hp/300 ft lb subaru with CVT. currently makes no sound, super quiet exhaust. if i deleted everything and bolted the loudest exhaust i can find, i can have WOT in 6000rpm from 0-100, no gear change. 6000rpm all the way. hmm ...
