I'm not sure what "huge" means in this context, but just so you know, the 6.2 LS3 motor in the new Vette weighs 433 pounds, while the 7 liter Z06 tips the scales at 453 pounds. These seem to match up fairly well with the 445 pound M3 V8, no?

In my particular kingdom, the new M3 has yet to be crowned. I'll try one out, but after my disappointment with our E46 M3 (mostly due to size and weight), I'm thinking the new one may be too much of a porker to be really fun to drive.

Looks as if you also think that the new Vette will be quicker and faster than the M3, so we at least agree on that.

Good one!

Most of us can make up our own minds about cars, however, and in case you hadn't noticed, BMW owners/drivers are also routinely ridiculed. If you really, really care about your image, please buy whatever you think you should buy in order to prop it up.
