Not sure how many times I have to say it specs are not specs. I believe these specs are not "apples to apples".

You need to be more specific.
Reading is key. I stated this explicity in my post #253. You just missed it.

OK let the back pedaling commence. Of course they did not build the M3 to race but it will make a darn fine race car. And we likely do not need to rehash the importance of a cars success on the race circuit in terms of it fostering a high sales volume.

You didn't and I did not say you did. Ugh....

Lastly I am open to hearing about my attitude and insults. I haven't gone there. Perhaps you are confusing me and Sticky your new best friend?
