Jeez, lot of panties in a twist.

Pretty sure OP was just offering his thoughts on another bimmer a lot of noobs would say is a sports car, and not implying this was a "legit" comparison. In fact, if you read his post, he basically says the M is in a world of its own.

There are a lot of people (outside this forum) that would benefit from understanding the M3 is not just a suped up 3-series. Innocuous posts like OP's just serves to reinforce that.

Thanks for your thoughts OP!

I bet most 328i E93 owners think their car is almost the same as yours.

I'm not comparing a Scion to your/my car. I'm comparing one that looks almost identical to yours, especially from a casual view, i.e. driving down the road.

Possibly. But is my thread any worse than some of these gems we've had lately?

Help - Running straight pipes and keep failing emissions testing WTF?
How to make my headlights look like the new 3 series?
6MT vs. DCT
Should I wait for the next-gen M3?

last time my 335i was in the shop getting some maintenance i got a 550i as a loaner. very fun. new spark plugs the other day and i got a bottom-of-the-barrel 328i that had been smoked in. i was a little disappointed.
