What about the M2

I bet the M2 won't be smaller than the E30 or E36 M3, and maybe the same size as the E46 M3

I'm not a fan of the direction any car makers are headed. We'll see how all these turbos are holding up after 90k miles and no maintenance other than late oil changes.

My dad is the type that waits until the ODO reads 50 miles off of the oil change sticker before he calls in for a servicing appointment... While I do it myself for my car at home..

Why have a naturally-aspirated V8 when a twin-turbo'd I6 can give the same or more HP? Why have a naturally-aspirated I6 when a twin-turbo'd I4 can give the same or more HP?
because there's no replacement for displacement

Id beg to differ there. Have a 2002 f350 power stroke thats chipped and have owned since it left the dealership. currently sitting at 253k and the only thing thats ever gone (major) is the transmission. Turbo diesels are tanks and are definitely built to last (think semis).

In terms of unleaded vehicles, I do believe there is more wear and tear over the diesels just regarding the RPMs.

The 7.3 engine was one of the best produced and its not a Ford. It's an International and is the best model in my opinion Ford has put out. It was known for glow plug issues, injector problems, and a few other issues. It's considered bullet proof compared the 6.0 that followed it. Transmissions are always an issue with Ford's and really bad in the Dodges. If I was to buy a Ford it would be an 03 (last yr) of the 7.3 in manual. For power though they do not compare to the newer diesels, but are better in the longevity department.

Back to topic - I hate the direction BMW is going. The Turbo setups are more fuel efficient and can provide better power. They require more maintenance and when something breaks get ready for an expensive repair. Not that anything is cheap in a BMW. Diesel is a superior engine for low end torque. They usually cost more and require more costly maintenance. As far a longevity goes its unproven so far. It should last longer, but who knows. A well maintained Gas engine can go for a long long time. One guy hit over a million miles. Repairs are cheaper and are easier to fix.
