1. looks nicer

3. better track car

the vette is faster, what holds it back is
1. traction limited can't put the power down.
2. poor intake system, just a cold air intake and v-ram will cut as much as .4 of the 1/4 mile times.

look here and this is an 07

Couldn't agree with you more. I currently own a 335 but was holding out to see the pricing on the M3. We can go back and forth all day about the pros and cons.....the one thing that jumped out (to me) was price:

08 Vette with darn near every option in the book sells for about 55K (dealer invoice or possible invoice +1K)

M3 STARTS at $57K...and when I added the options I wanted I was up close to $68K

~$13K is alot of money....somewhere around $250/month on the car payment.

That being said...no way to "win" on one side or the other. Vette people will always back their cars and likewise for the BMW crowd.

just my $0.02
