A 4 series sedan and four door gran coupe with a lower roofline would have been far more coherent. But yeah.

Perhaps someone will make a series that includes all the legendary small coupes from BMW... E30 M3, E36 M3, E46 M3, 1M, and M2.
Everyday Driver made a video where they drive all of the M3 cars, and then throw in the 1M and M2. Funny thing is, when they get to the end, they rate the top 3 cars based on which one they would want to own and drive everyday....both agreed it was unanimously the 1M.

Iíve never gelled with the E30 M3. Iíve tried, but to no avail. Way too slow in street trim.

When BMW launched the F80 (non ZCP), i read a piece by Sam Smith where he lapped faster in the new car on PSS than in an E30 touring car on slicks. He loved the feel of the old car, and if I could have one of the actual race cars Iíd take it no questions asked, to enjoy the intensity it had in race trim.

But the street version is pretty lame to me. No need to bash or contradict, itís just my opinion. Looking forward to the next episodes...

A modern M2, M3,M4, are weighing in at 1625 kg plus. That is extreem for a drivers car.

BMW must do something on the obisatas side!

950kg car with 330hp is a dream car to put around on race tracks. I know a streetcar can not be this lightweight but 1625kg for an M2 with a competition badge on the boot is also extreme on the negative side!

DTM roots

I WISH that BMW would simply measure and design a car based directly on the high points and benefits of the e30 m3s winning DTM chassis.
Then build / add a SMALL motor that puts
out some crazy power per liter / cylinder
Once again.

Just Like DTM:

"Just two weeks separate us from a new DTM season and this year we'll get to see a lot of big changes happening. The biggest will be the fact that Mercedes-Benz won't be part of it anymore but BMW and Audi are glad to find out what Aston Martin has in store, as the Brits have decided to enter the German competition this year. Furthermore, another big change is to be found under the hood, where we'll get brand new 2-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engines."

Full story here:

https://www.bmwblog.com/2019/04/19/b...19-dtm-season/

Cmon BMW... don't just rest on your laurels
Try harder ! Scare us !

Otherwise week just have to keep on building our own versions until then.

Yeah but the lightness and tossibility of the car is legendary. I could throw any corner I wanted at my 90 M3 and it stuck. Plus the sound was amazing!

I've always loved these machines. I'm just afraid if I ever got the nerve to get one as a project car it would be the biggest money pit ever. Too bad.

I like the new four banger .... in DTM.

If only we could get closer to our DTM roots :

5 KEY INNOVATIONS:

TO THE BMW M4 DTM 2019 PROGRAM ///

01 Faster: thanks to the new BMW P48 two-litre turbo engine, the BMW M4 DTM reaches speeds of up to 300 km/h.
02 More efficient: the new turbo unit achieves much higher performance with lower consumption from half the capacity, compared with the V8 predecessor model.
03 More exciting: drivers can make use of the Push-to-Pass function at the touch of a button, and with it up to 30 hp more engine power. The result: more overtaking manoeuvres.
04 More spectacular: compared with the 2018 season, the rear wing of the BMW M4 DTM is 520 millimetres wider and makes the BMW M4 DTM appear more aggressive.
05 Leaner: without driver and fuel, the car must weigh in at 981 kg. This is 50 kg less than last season.

981kg ! 🙀

The Everyday Driver guys are great!! They also have feature films for the 911 and the Corvette, if you've got a thing for those
