I've yet to see a Charger on track. It is just a barge, so I wouldn't plan on it.

If you have to have the Charger, at least get the Super Bee.

That seems to be the best solution anyways, which I will proceed to do ASAP. Can't wait to experience the magic of the E92!

I heard it once and I was hooked on it, lol.
E9x's V8 is heavenly... especially with the right exhaust or even an OEM exhaust Mod. I wouldn't even put these two cars in the same comparison chart. You'll see what we all mean when you test drive the M3... I don't think it compares to any American car in its class.

Anyway Post a follow up when you do test drive one. Bet you'll forget the charger even exists

Umm, forgive me for the obvious but whats wrong with your current M3? If nothing is wrong, there is no need to go in debt. Is it a need or want?

Be careful as the M3 has very lackluster acceleration down low in the RPM band and you need to beat on it (rev it to redline) to make adequate power. If you floor it at 3,000 RPM don't expect the M3 to be able to out-accelerate even a min van. I find myself downshifting a lot to pass, etc. The motor is magic from 6,500 to 8,400 and it needs to be in this range if you want to go fast.

Not to worry I've got the means to acquire an E92/SRT8. And my current M3 is 15yrs old, has 250,000 miles on it, no AC, no radio, windows don't work, etc. So I'm going to strip her out and she'll be my track car.

The charger is a piece of shit, no offense op.
Now I can understand wanting a challenger, because even though its not a sports car, it has history and its a classic shape.
Performance wise please dont downgrade the m3 by comparing it to a charger...

Since you had to come on here to ask,

I am going to save you any further thoughts and tell you, Just get the charger.
