Wonder if this will be the new BMW theme with that integration and the updated mid cycle refresh on the M5 will get the same change in a few years down the road?

Most probably. Here's a video showing M3 and M5 at a gas station.

F80 M3 being followed by 1M coupe on Autobahn. 1M coupe is tuned to 420 HP and has Akrapovic exhaust.

Looks very nice and powerful.

Not too different from the previous model, which is good.

The power is estimated at around 430hp. Guess it won't be as fast as the M5.

I would bet it ends up looking a little less like the e92 than the renderings above, but I agree that it is probably going to be more of an evolutionary change than anything else.

The M3 has never been as fast as the M5 in a straight line.

That is great news. I personally like the M3(4) being powered by an inline 6 cylinder engine. Can't wait to hear it. I like the deep sound of the V8, but the stock exhaust on the e9x's are too tame and muted for my taste. I have driven an e90 with stock exhaust and an e92 competition package with an Active exhaust and difference was night and day. As fast as the e9x's are, my e46 sounds like a wound up chainsaw on meth that is giving 110% at all times. I never got that feeling in the e9x.
