I posted a few weeks ago about forced induction and you guys had some great info and advice. Thanks you very much. I am about to get some money that I could use for a down payment on an M3. I have wanted an M3 for a long time but have been working on my Z. I would like you guys to take a look at what I have done to my car and tell me some advantages that the M3 has over my Z (other than "it has a back seat"). This would really give me some prospective hearing this kind of info from people who have driven M3's much more than I have. Thanks in advance for you input. Here's the mod list>>
