What kind of interesting news came up about future M products?

Any speculation on the M2/M4?

Nothing about M2/M4. I understood that US will get something smaller than 3-series but it will be different from what Europe gets. They are still reeling after 318ti failure.

Most of the conversation went something like this:
- We heard that the new M5 will only be available with SMG - true or not?
- Who here in the room wants an M5 with a manual?
<Everybody raises hands>
- Then it might make sense to bring one with a manual, doesn't it?

One of the few interesting things he said (and asked not to disclose, but whatever) is that there will be some kind of super-duper advanced M-school where the participants will get to go to a race and hang out with the team (PTG I assume) and will then get instruction from Bill and Boris. It will not be in a mere mortals price range, I think...
