In my eyes you are going backwards in terms of e92 back to e46

I know the 'M' badge is very appealing as i keep thinking i want an M3 over my 335i but am just about to buy JB4 and then i will be happy again. Look into getting a remap and stick with the newer model
Step backwards in some areas yes but in driving pleasure then no. The fact is that an M feels special in the way it drives, it gets under your skin and no other BMW i have driven has come close to this feeling, including my old 335i.

I need to get into a bigger car later this year and i may end up trading the M3 for a F31 touring or an X5 - i have driven an F30 335 and the X5 and although these are newer models than my E90 M3 they both felt like massive downgrades to me - because they are. Will be a sad day when i hand over my keys and pick up the new car.
