unless it snows, no way will the ix beat the m3!
IX has 168 HP and weights a lot more than 192 HP m3. IX is an awesome car, with true all weather capabilities, but the m3 was concieved for racing, it grew up in racing and it is famous for racing! Unless you can drive (or it snows), m3 is a true winner on a race track

No chance...the stock M3 has 300+lbs less weight, 24 more hp, superior suspension, tracking, steering, brakes, gearing, areo-dynamics, tire/wheel size (in some cases), etc. However, if there was an inch or two of snow on the track...probably. Tell your friend to go ice racing...he'll do well there!
