I've owned both... I race both... again... the M3 is (was for me) a great car... but the IS-F is (for me) a better car. And it's starting to show that now in the latest tests.
Tanner & Paul... are just entertainment IMO.
I respect your racing accomplishments but to come on here and say a stock IS-F dominates a stock M3 in every performance measure is flat out ridiculous. There are plenty of objective, same-day comparisons that say otherwise. Anyone can find these. And it was not until the IS-F got an LSD - at the very end of its life cycle - that it was even close in the handling department. Similar deal with the C63.
