Hey Guys,
Just looking for advice. I have 2009 e92 with 90k miles. i am getting the itch for supercharger, but wanted to get your guys take on it. Do you guys for see any problems or concerns .. supercharging a car with 90k ? Car is still on original rod bearings and i dont see any issues at this point, but will prob upgrade if i decide to go to the supercharging route. Not looking to track or anything just looking to have more power than anything. I also sometimes feel like might as well upgrade to m5 since i dont track and i am just looking for power. i can find 2013 m5 around 55k easily. I am probably gonna get raped when trading mine in, but we ll see when i get to that point.

thanks in advance

I was very very unimpressed with the M5. Reliability aside, I would MUCH prefer the SC M3.

This is why I bought the F80 M3 instead of the E92 M3.

I also looked at an 05 996 Turbo which would have been a good car also but I don't want a Porsche. If you ask me the Porsche at this point in my life would make me look like a weirdo.

I would forget the supercharger and sell car. It u ask me I would settle for 996 or 997 turbo they are nice cars.

My f80 keeps me happy in this department and its brand new. I know it's faster than the 996 turbo the 1/4 mile,0-60/100 and, etc. I also know it handles on that level too which is good.
