Heavy, but in good company...

Look at these times!

It’s ALL relative! Yes, the 400+ lbs. surely doesn’t help, but even with the extra load, this is VERY good company to be in:

The E93 is incredible but like everyone has noted it is a bit different from the E92, especially in speed with the extra added weight. Because of this, I went ahead and added an ESS 600 supercharger with a Gintani Sport Exhaust (HFC, X-Pipe & Rear) to a 2011 E93. It's a monster with the top up and down. I'm really glad I have the aftermarket parts on the E93 for the simple fact that I love driving with the top down on warm days but I had to have the speed to go along with it.

Some E93s leak so I'd worry about that, I had an '09 that never leaked a drop though.

Sticking with the E92 for now. I just can't get past the difference in the way the E93 drives. Come Spring, I might revisit, but a few years back I test drove an E93 and walked away very impressed. Fast forward to getting my E92 and then driving an E93 again and I know that my impressions of the M3 were wrong a few years ago...I was just driving the wrong version.
