I would guess at 200kg minimum between AWD and RWD. Probably 100kg when comparing F80 against AWD G80

That's what I was comparing was F80 vs incoming awd G80. 100kg wouldn't be a terrible weight gain but hoping for higher use of aluminum and CF to minimize weight gain. Otherwise it'll be darn near the size of the 8 series

That front wheel/fender gap is ridiculous on a performance sedan... Why do BMW keep doing that? Maybe their suspension lead owns shares at H&R and Eibach and makes money off of their sales?

I see aftermarket springs in my future, again!

Did you ever consider that the car is accelerating/under load when photographed?!?!?!? It's not parked.

Everyone that comments on the size of the M3 sedan. BMW makes an M2 that is the almost the exact proportions of an E46 M3, if you object to the size of the M3 then that is the model to consider.
My e36 M3 had all that... 4 doors, 5 seats, 6MT, and a large trunk. At least, large enough for me.

The new M3 will be arguably twice as big, or at least feel like it. It's seems that it's as big or bigger than the e39 M5. Some people love compact 4 door sport sedans, which the Audi RS4 is, for example. Given that I want to stick with ///M cars from BMW, the fact that I'm limited to a huge M3 sedan (the smallest 4-door ///M sedan) is very disappointing.

If the M2 came in 4 doors, I would be all over it.

If the numbers are correct, the new F8x Ms are now wider than both E39 and E60 M5s (measuring from center of the right tire to the center of the left tire). The new F8x Ms are wider and longer than the old E46 M3 yet they weight about the same. The bar chart gives a better visual.

But would it pass today's safety and emission standards? No it wouldn't, so you couldn't just build it again as-is.

As far as I can tell from a quick google search, the current Audi RS4 is slightly longer than the G20 3er?

Also, "some people" seem to be around here a lot but are arguably a minuscule amount of people world-wide in order to warrant development of a completely new product just for them.

No problems with this at all, I just hope they don't nerf the 6MT too much (or at all)

New Photos December 19, 2019

Here's a first look at the standard G80 M3 seats and the manual transmission shifter! The optional carbon fiber bucket seats (second image) are also reposted for comparison.

Grill is huge so RIP M3? You have an extremely shallow view of M3.
