//m3 Xi?

Well I was chit chatting with a friend about cars and we got on the subject of the new RS4. I dont know what made me think of it but I got to thinking that a E90 //M3 XI might be a decent idea. Not for the coupe though. Just keep it to the sedan. It wouldnt perform quite as well but I think it would still be a track demon and I think it would still take audis RS4. I think it would be a great idea. What do you all think?

^^^please tell me you're being sarcastic...otherwise you are absolutely retarded. again, if you are joking, disregard this. The 335i is the turbo charged 3 series, it's already out, and it's twin-turbo charged for that matter. And as far as awd, only an option for the new 328i coupe, not the 335i

Whoa... the 335 is NO match for the RS4...

The RS4 will laugh at you from multiple car-lengths ahead.

Agreed but how do you all think a M3 xi SEDAN would compare with the RS4. Or thee M3 coupe with active AWD with the new and r34 skline?

Yeah I would love to have the coupe with active AWD. It would be a monster. Even for the skyline to beat

335i is debuting in an Xi some time in the spring, supposedly.

I for one would love to see an E90 M3 PERIOD. Having an AWD version would be icing on the cake, but just having a 4-door ///M3 would be sick. I agree 100% with the thought of an active AWD system too. Porsche has it with their turbos. When you take off, 95% goes to the rears and then it distributes from there as necessary (from my understanding). I would slap a deposit down on that no question!
