Glad you like your car. I liked the euro too, it's just that the question was for $6K what was the best choice in the US. I would not disagree with you in terms of a money is no object vehicle that the Euro is the best choice, hell I don't think forced induction for the street is the best choice (I'm an NA kind of guy), but again, the question related to a budget, and I'm guessing a 99 M3 owner would like a warranty a little bit longer.

Also, I noticed that you mentioned other necessary and extensive modifictations that need to be done => more $$.

Lastly, I want to mention that the roads in the US are not the same as in the UK. Of all the roads I've driven in the UK, only a few of the B-roads were poorly cared for. The majority were smooth, and so allow you to use your power better.

Also, most people in the US autox, which is simply a tight course in a small area. When I run my M3's, I rarely break 45-50mph, hence my emphasis on torque, which helps the acceleration out of corners.

I think the above simply justify my recommendation (which I hope to undertake myself this summer/autumn).

ANyways, take care and enjoy your ferrari eater!
