Now bring a 135i GT in behind it - using a slightly tweaked N55B30 engine (the update to the N54), ~ 300 lbs less, LSD, etc. Now you have the pinnacle M3 GT that's a sub 4 second car, and a 135i GT that's a low 4 second car.

Done and done, problem solved. BMW you can hire me now. But as adc fears, no radio for you! ; -)
That would be badass Hugo! I cant see them using the N55 though. I'm particularly not sold on its superiority in terms of acceleration. It's design and what not is clearly ahead though.
