I am indecisive between buying a 1998 M3 or a 2001 SVT
Lightning. Which one do you guys think is faster of the line, 1/4 mile, etc? Which one will be less to maintain? Have you guys seen the 5.4 supercharged engine? Makes the 3.2 look like chicken feed. I know M3 will out handle it, but I am mostly concerned with ultimate fun and quality for many years.---not to mention rarity among other vehicles.

M3 is fun as shit, because of the handling. The speed is kinda secondary to me. The Ford is OK,
but how many do you see around that are still running? It's good for a couple years, then it's
done. The M3 is fun for as long as you want to maintain it. Dude, a Ford is a Ford. (Found on the
road dead) Forget it, carving the twisties is more
fun than straight line performance because a lot
of cars will beat the crap out of the SVT.
