Guys and Gals, read my lips!
As I said, I have driven the E46 and the new car on the track and there IS no comparison. You would have to have the E46 CSL to come close to the new car. The competition pkg is nowhere near this good. Not sure who is selling this car as being soft? How many of you have driven the car and really wrung it out? I know the looks are subjective and some may very well like the old one better, but go drive one for yourself and don't rely on a few journalists that try to find any flaw they can. We were with the German guys that have hundreds of laps on the ring and all I can say is you should see the grin on their faces! My one lap with them at the wheel on the north loop was worth the trip over there by itself. Besides, in the real world you will drive this thing at about 1/10 of its capability.
