    No it definitely is in a higher state of tune. But... it's also built better for more power. The heads, the block, everything.

    After watching that video, I changed my mind - it's a damn good looking car. I like it. It sounds better than I thought, but it's nothing to brag about (sound-wise). Nice car - looking forward to it.

    Me too - I am a sedan fan to begin with (better rigidity), but without having that bias, would say the M3 looks better than the coupe (which I would not say about the current gen). I like it. Alot.

    M3>M4 but I think a C7 Vette beats both.

    You think? I've seen two on the road now, it doesn't doit for me like the c6 does, to many sharp edges, rear looks strange, I hate to say it but somehow the new body style cheapens the look of the car compared to the c6, at least IMO. On the other hand.... This m3/m4 is a real great looking car

    Car sounds so muted. I hate the sound of it. Looks very good, although I think the M3 looks better than the M4 this time around. E90Company is right, the C7 will probably still be faster than the ///M.

    Definitely. I'm not a fan of the new BMW's rear. Side profile and front look nice, but so did the E9X and they had V8's (which I would want over the new I6, and I am sure you are loving Click here to enlarge). C6 looked great but I think the C7 hit it on the head with the design. C6 looked good but next to each other looks dated IMO.

    I do love my v8, these new m's do sound muted...I have a feeling the tuning potential for these cars will be good though. Also, who knows, a aftermarket exhaust might wake them up

    I was thinking the exact same thing while watching the video of the M4.

    I never thought the day would come when a Vette would be more desirable than an M car. The exhaust note of the F8x cars is just too muted. Damn turbos.

    The Vette still is missing that slight bit of refinement and prestige.

    That said, I think I would take the Vette too. If it had a DCT it would be no discussion.

    I don't think so. I think prestige is in a solid V8 which the M4 is not. Refinement? It depends on if you have no power north of ~6k with the smoky/rattle prone pea shooter turbos BMW likes to use. I do agree DCT is an advantage for BMW but I would take a manual anyways so point moot.

    Agreed on DCT.

    As for prestige, we all know that the M stamp is watered down now that it appears on SUVs and 4200 lb luxo-barges. The 'vette interior is coming ahead by leaps and bounds... probably not up to M standards yet, but certainly closing the gap by a significant margin.

    Finally, price. Yet to be confirmed until BMW releases pricing, but the Stingray will likely undercut the M3/4 by $15-20k. If that's correct, then the ZO6/7 will be about in the same price bracket as the M3, and will no doubt destroy it in a straight line and around the track, DCT or no. And it's still port injected, so no carbon build-up, and takes so well to those cheap mods that the 'murican muscle cars love.
