Also... My times in my IS-F (with Muffler & air Filter & Tires) is something like 3 SECONDS faster than anyone elses 'M3' on this site at the same track (Auto Club Speedway, California Motor Speedway).

I'm not using times/comparisons from 3 years ago etc...

Also... my IS-F is .3 and 3 MPH faster than my FULLY MODDED M3 was... same track... and I have almost zero mods to my IS-F.

1/4 mile drag races mean nothing to me - please show me links of the new track times for the 2011 ISF. Also i still believe a DCT M3 is faster than the ISF. I had a run in with one on the autobahn a few months ago and at the higher speeds my M3 was faster -fact.

This link is discussing a comparison by EVO magazine from 3 months ago - M3 faster to 60 mph, faster to 100mph and faster at 140mph.................. and around the track - we'll just have to agree to disagree.
