ps no reflection on anyone here since I don't know what level of driver anyone is, just a general musing on peoples quest for more and more horsepower.
At least in my case this isnīt why I want more power. Hahaha! Not that I am a professional diver either by the way!! But, I do own other cars that have soooo much more power that I sort of have grown accustomed to lots of power on tap. So to me, the M3 does feel a tad slow. Plus, yes, although I have driven mine on track a couple of times already and am really highly impressed with the cars ability, I do want to have that reserve power on tap when that 911TT shows up on longs. Yes, I do want to blow him away. Period!! Sorry, to me, power is great!! Especially in a very well balanced vehicle. Tuning many times ruins the balance but not if done properly and with $$$.
