Sadly I have no experience with the other systems so I can not provide any feedback even if i wanted too.

Hey Mark, the term "better" is relative and only the end user can make that decision based on their research and needs.

However, you are correct: "Differences" would have been the politically correct term.

However, I am addressing a question that is posted way too often lately.

There's so many S/C E9X M3s out there that I bet this forum only accounts for 1/3 of them so who can say who has the most sold, or on the track solely etc. Keep in mind how many BMW forums there are.

Back on topic do you have dates of the dynos?

To make it clear I am not taking sides...but the informative thread doesn't seem transparently informative.
How many people have actually had the chance to tear down multiple systems? Not many.

Once you work with a system or for a company, you automatically believe in it and that it's the best. Regardless if you confidence is well placed or false.

I've had the chance to open up both systems on multiple occasions and drive them each for hours.

Thanks for appreciating the thread.
