One thing I do not get which I mentioned in the other thread where some guy implanted a X6M TT engine into an m3 and everyone was raving about it. Everyone loves the GTR here yet they knock turbo's constantly. It will be a new m3 with GTR power or more with probably even bettery power delivery. Everything and more that the current gtr is and who would not take that?

Poeple are getting way to hung up. Keep the e92 and also get a new f m3 if you need to have both Pesronally i get sick of cars every 3 years and evidenced by the !m and GTR, turbo's are FAST around a track and as fast as a NA V8

I totally disagree with that. Most guys really into their 335s would have an M3 if they could swing it. I'm sure this comment will yield many who say it that is not true but we all know it really is.

That may have been true at one point, but now a used M3 is easily in the reach of many who might contemplate even a used 335i. Used M3s may be even more attractive today as even some 08s would have low miles unlike a daily driven 335i.

If I am not mistaken, wasn't the E46 M3 starting at 45-48k?? Fully loaded around 55-56K?; or what just for Military guys over seas?

Is "crackberry" a term for what you've been smoking?

I remember when we weren't the world's undisputed superpower, for well over 45 years until the breakup of the Soviet Union.

Now of course we definitely are the world's undisputed superpower.

Unless you were writing about car design and implementation?

OK. Agreed.

Both yes and no, firmly. Especially not knowing what so ever what this car is going to be like.
