So I was thinking of fitting bucket seats, club sport suspension and better brakes etc on the m3 sooner than planned so I would enjoy it again, however by the time it's done, cost wise its not far too from getting a 997.1 gt3( a year ago I would have definitely modified it but having spent crazy money in the pass I do like the idea of getting cars that only needs a hand ful of things or less now) I'd still keep the rear seats in the m3 so Itd still be practical.
So what I want to know I guess is, will the m3 give the gt3 a run for it's money with the mods on track and will it give that much more raw feel im looking for or will it still be too soft?
I know no one can answer this for me but just a few more opinions on this might help my decision.
Btw, it is possible to put rear seats in the back... I think a few people have done it on the 997.1...
I wouldn't mod a M3 to compete with GT3, I would just get a GT3, especially with 997.1 is much more civilized on the streets than the 996
