I looked into the new M5 / M6 but the weight and cost made my decision to go back to another M3 easy.
Roman, I am interested in supercharging my M3 as well. I am looking at VF, ESS, and G-Power.
My question to you: I know that supercharged m3s hold up well, but have you encountered ANY significant issues with customers' superchargers? And by significant i mean blown motors, or other supercharged related repairs that cost >5K to fix?
