I hope all off you lad's enjoy your new m3 when it comes and i'll see you on the roads SCAGS
Wow I am on the opposite end of the spectrum. I think it looks TOO much different than the 335i. Funny how folks can see things exactly opposite, given the same exact thing. However, this sucker is going to be brutally fast. I am so sure it will be neck and neck (or faster) than the M5 to 60/100. Sure 530hp (M5 is under rated) will pull away at some point but this thing is going to be fast. Check out my older thread on power to weight ratio here. It will be fantastic for this car. Last but not least it will be geared for speed. The E46 M3 was not all that stellar on power to weight but it still hauled a$$. Go for what you are lusting, that is the best decision, but hopefully you will at least see one of these on the streets and have a tinge of regret! Cheers.
