I will readily eat crow if I'm wrong.
Forget about the V-8. It's not just a matter of dropping the M3 engine into the M Coupe. With the engine come all the extras. Double Clutch transmission, super complex electronics and "M" settings. Also, There would have to definitely be an overhaul of the fuel system. As anyone who owns an M right now knows, the regular Z4 fuel tank is way too small to service the present I6. Add the V8 and you will have to increase the size of the fuel tank. Maybe they can put the gas tank in the trunk? Anyway, 08 is the final year for the less than popular MC.
