I am first in line agreeing that the new M3 SHOULD have multi-pot brakes and direct fuel injection. However, I often try to remind myself of this KEY point.

Equal or better performance to the 911S and R8 for $20k/$50k less respectively! COMPROMISE - gotta love it.

I'll try to remind myself of this key work during my next post criticising some part of the car I am not happy about.
Good points. That is why the M3 is on my list of the top 3 cars to buy. As far as allround track performance, I don't think the M3 will match the C2S...too much mass and too many compromises. Porsches are built to perform on the track yet are also decent daily drivers. M3's are built to be daily drivers but are decent track cars.
