Certainly possible, though I'm sure that's always the case when there is an M3 sedan. I know I'd buy an E90 M3 WAY before even considering an E60 M5

Keep in mind that by the time the M3 (sedan) arrives, some people will already be near lease end on their M5s.

E90 M3 and E60 M5 are pretty damn similar.. Except so far it seems like BMW did the engine right in one and left the other FUBAR

Same thing will happen to the e92. As soon as the factories are tooled up for f32/f82 production they will be no more.
