I do agree there are some 'negative' feelings going around. However, I remain fairly confident that the M3 will be worth the wait - and yes, I'm waiting for the AWD (anticipating) that it will not be available to me until 2019. However, with that said, not only will I (you/we) have the opportunity to assess other options (MB EQ and do not forget Volvo's EV - expected early '19) but we will hear many real-time reviews from current M3 drivers (non-Tesla employees at that!) and given the 'potential' competition, maybe that allows for those of us that do want other 'options' on the M3 to get them at a better price: remember the Model S appears to be having issues with selling due to the upcoming M3 and its higher cost. The same may happen to the M3, when Tesla (read as 'Elon') reveals more about the Model Y. If I had my ultimate choice, I'd pick the Model Y over the M3 in a heartbeat (as I have a family of 4, soon to be 5). Crossing fingers (and toes) for the best.
