Traded my '09 135i with 38xxx miles for a '04 M3 with 56xxx almost a year ago and my 135i had a new chargepipe, BOV, and piggyback making it pretty quick, but it still was no M car and it never will be except for the 1 series M Coupe. I test drove the E92 M3 last December and it was a blast. I honestly was genuinely disappointed when it was time to return back to the dealer, it really is a great car. The sound of the S65 is intoxicating to say the least. If I won the lottery I would have an E92 M3 as a DD and my E46 M3 as my weekend car. There is no joy going beyond 6000 rpm with the N54 and you can even hear it want to just give up and start from the beginning. Just my opinion.
