Because it's just simply jealousy....some BMW fans just hate the fact that another car company like Lexus has come so close to what the M3 is. Actually, in a race, the M3 in a drag race in all stock form for both cars, the IS-F beats it. Could that be the case for the rage for BMW fans??? On a track, the M3 will take it. Seriously, though, in real world driving, it's always a drag race. Can't really track a car on public roads. Haha.
