This is not good news. I refuse to accept the soon-to-be fact that the new M3 coupe is going to have a completely irrelevant name. What a waste for one of the few historically significant badges.

Bad move BMW
I agree the M3 is an important symbol for the BMW. With all the recent decisions to make 6 series gran coupes and (rumored) 4 series gran coupe. It wouldn't be far fetched for BMW to produce a two door 5 series and a two door 3 series.

This could allow for the M3 to remain the hardcore race ready car and the M4 would be the refined luxury version with the same engine and suspension. Maybe even a horse power bump.

BMW knows how important M3 is and how much income that cars name alone brings. I just don't buy them going to M4. Maybe it'll be the M sedan, M coupe, and M convertible only.

But if there will be a 4 series there will be an M4. That's just ///Marketing
