Report: BMW may lean back towards tradition with a four-cylinder for next M3

Motoring.com from down yonder (Australia) reports that BMW M’s product management team leaked out information saying that the M3 or M4 could eventually be equipped with a four-cylinder engine–one that’s most likely force-fed, rather than the original E30’s naturally-aspirated four.

According to the report, Motoring spoke with Carsten Pries, who said that the four would mainly be used to reduce weight. Though, specifics were not mentioned to any degree.

Do you think the M3/M4 should go back to a four-cylinder? Or should they keep the lovely six that we’ve all come to love and appreciate to all extents?

Let us know in the comments.
