Totally true, people who own M3s and are too poor to also buy a Camaro for drag + an Elise for track + a Bentley for daily driving are missing the point of owning an m3 which is to wash it and look at it! Everyone know that it's a lot more fun doing 12.4 in a Mustang then doing 12.4 in an M3!

I'm guessing that going to work with my M3 is also wasting my handling!

Did you now that there is a gold mining town in Ontario (Canada) with the name....Swastika....and when i saw for the first time the video, (before i posted it ) i saw already
the Swastika sign..on the ///M3....and when i say...these people are nuts..members say why??or i want 3 min.of my live back
For all the people who don't recognize this sign...think on World-War II and their
German leader....... and people with this sign on their car (///M3) in the year 2012 are
for me......yes.... NUTS !!!

Polako momci. Amo bit posteni prema jedno drugo. Oni u video nemaju nikakve veze sa clanovi ove skupine. Nije ljepo ponizavati bilo koj narod.

Sorry for the poor grammar.

The more I think about it, you're right--that's one of the great things about this car, that it can do so many things so well.

I get your point here, too, but I'm thinking in terms of engine architecture/design and intended purpose. The extreme of the M3 example would be an F1 engine--very high revving, high-strung, relatively small displacement, and relying on high revs to generate horsepower. An F1 car would obviously be a very poor choice for a drag car. Most people would probably stall it just trying to maintain the revs to get it off of the line and going.

The extreme of the old-school American V8 example would be a big-block drag motor. Immense amounts of torque to jump off the line, and max power developed at around 5500-6000rpm, instead of 8200rpm in our cars, or 18000rpm in an F1 engine.

The M3 does by its nature have to be a compromise, but in its sporting nature I would say that its engine leans much more toward road course/handling/easily-modulated in the 5500-8000rpm range for maintaining balance in corners, instead of toward the drag racing/torque monster end of the spectrum. In other words, oversquare vs. undersquare.

Come on, you're smarter then that!

It's not because you go dragracing with your M3 that you bought your M3 only for that purpose!
