What good is power without handling though?

But that's where your GT-R steps in.

Agreed, a C6 probably won't out handle a M3 without some suspension mods, but those Z06 suspensions are pretty tight. The balance of the M3 is where it's magical. However, the lack of torque is horrific. The GTR has it all and it's very responsive to mods, unlike the M3.

+1. Love the M3 but it's definitely not the fastest car out there

^ oooh!

Yeah next car will definitely be faster for me as well.

I have to admit though: The M3 was the car that I would be most happy with, especially for the price range that I was looking in.

hahahe.....I can understand.

I'm gonna try to take my M to the racetrack hopefully in the future. I drive crazy on the public roads, so I think it would be a wise decision to let the extra energy out on the track...

Get all your mods before that group buy! It won't make any difference if you wait till the weekend before. You'll just get to enjoy your car with mods a little sooner...

Tell ya what, I'll go get your car dyno'd for you, and all your shit installed this saturday. Just give me the $$ and I'll get it done

Haha no im not skilled in fighting crime but yea i've had both...I don't want to come off as this spoiled kid becasue im far from that...My parents and i have an understanding as long as i keep my GPA high in school, help out whenever needed, and repsect and all i can have it. I work on the weekends to pay for some minor mods but yeah. My first car was an sl500 but a drunk driver hit me and it was totalled.
