PS - Anecdotally, my old SRT4 (bone stock except for track sneakers and pads) would give E46 M3s all they could handle around a given track, except on a long straight. It was well down on power to weight (230 HP, 2920 pounds full of gas), but it would come out of corners like a striped ape while riding the boost.

E36s were for breakfast.

I'm really looking forward to the new M3.
I highly doubt your dodge neon ate e36 m3's for breakfast, especially since the e36 can keep up with the e46 on most tracks.
