I am of the opinion that supercharging the M3 really transforms the car and not necessarily for the better. I am sure this will create a stir, but oh well..
IDK, the cool thing about a centrifugal SC (and the weakness, depending on what you like) is that they boost in a linear fashion, building towards redline. so the powerband looks exactly like stock in its shape, just a lot more power and pulls harder near redline.

it is a weakness in that it does not really have the low end gain that a positive displacement blower has.

just depends what you like.

whether an SC is too much power for the m3 on a certain track depends on the track and the driver.
