1. Ward I agree that it sux that cars keep getting heavier, but all the safety and "luxury" components that people like...keep adding weight
2. The thread is supposed to be about the M3 and 335i. And I thank everyone who posted on topic, I would have gotten an M3 if they hadn't stopped making them when I needed to get a car. All things considered i think it worked out awesome for me anyway.
Thanks for the comments, I think the first couple years will be telling for the E9x M3. It'll probably come down to price and the people who have the money and are willing to get one.
