Yeah, maybe if the 2020 was out when I got the M3, I could see myself cross shopping it. But I don't think it would be worth trading it in now. I still think the M3 is the better car, although I could see the RC-F's V8 being a lot of fun. The nostalgia of the Supra was enough for me to give my money, but not when it looks like that. Who knows, maybe there will be aftermarket bumpers that get rid of that pointy nose and a set of aftermarket MkIV inspired headlights, and I'll change my mind altogether. Time will tell.

Toyota designed the sheet metal. BMW involvement or not, this is how it would look, which is what you don't like about it.
