Sure but seeing hundreds of supercharged M3s without earing about a single engine failure related to boost(again with the ESS kits) really contributed at making me realize that the M3 is a very realiable car even when supercharged! And trust me, I'm the most concerned person about reliability of my cars, after I blew up my 4th engine(2nd out of warranty) on my 09 STI I really thought that I would never modified any car again but now I'm supercharged and I feel that my set-up is really safe!

And yes the probability of having problems on a stock M3 VS supercharged M3 are not the same, same with the probability of winning the lottery when you buy one ticket VS 5 tickets, still slim chances that it will happen!
