Has anyone gone from a Z4 to an E92 M3?

I am not looking to compare power / speed. Clearly the M3 has the upper hand even against the Z "M Coupe"

What I am more interested is the handling of both cars. My Z4 (not the M, but has sport package) rides like it is a train on rails. Its crazy how fast it can go on curves. The M3 is a larger heavier car so in some ways it might seem that the Z might handle better but then again and M3 is a M3 and I expect great things. . Thoughts???

I have the M-coupe and the E92 M-3, suspension, wheels and tires, exhaust on the M-coupe and you are correct that it handles excellent but in term of speed, no comparsion with the M-3 (bone stock).

As my first post stated, clearly the e92 is faster. However, I am unclear based on your response how the handling compared between both cars.

Anyone else care to chime in
