Of course the M3 shines in many areas and especially in places where the Corvette lacks but when you drop that kind of money on a car like this, I would have expected more power. In the end, I would not get an M3 again given the chance.
I did the exact same thing. Came from a C5Z, almost bone stock and it would BLAZE. I'd never even driven a BMW, bought mine sight unseen because of what I heard about them. The fit and finish of this car is miles beyond any vette, and as such, I will never go back to a vette. But the lack of bottom end torque really irks me. You have to wring this car's neck to get it to go.
I won't say that I won't buy another M3 though, seeing as how the M4 is supposed to have another 100 ft lbs. That will be sufficient, definitely. Otherwise, I f-ing LOVE this car.
