Automobile pits 1M against M3

Sorry if this was already posted, I hadn't noticed if it had been posted. Interesting take on the two cars, let alone the war I'm sure it will start on MT vs DCT.

The only thing a 1M has on an M3 is the illuminated ///M in the gauge cluster. Other than that, it is no better...

Corrected.

And the M3 suspension is literaly the M3 suspension arms, which Tisher sells as a set. So it's a JB+ with the M3 suspension, and LSB, and some nice fenders.

I just want to see how it'll hold up at the track on a hot day. On the E90 side, there's a "Limp mode party at the track" thread. chillicheese's 335 went into limp mode repeatedly after 2-3 hot laps.

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
