FWIW, there are a lot of cars that I miss. The E90 M3 isn't really one of them.

Was it an e90 m3? Ad is gone. I really quite want one of those. I've never been disappointed after driving one, though it's been 5-6 years since my last drive (and torque expectations may have changed over time).

It would be very interesting if the put an H6 in the 718. I'm not sure what engine I would prefer in the real world, but the idea of a flat 6 is much more appealing than a turbo 4

Agreed. Or a turbo 6, for that matter. Although, as you mention, in the real world there's nothing lacking in the current turbo 4--except for sound quality (in some folks' opinions.)

Well crap!! That would definetly lower resale prices of the last 981’s with the 6. Maybe I need to wait on my spring plan to see how this plays out. Not that I need another reason to yet again wait on selling the M5.
