In Reply to: Supercharged 1.9L v/s M Roadster? posted by Cip on March 30, 1999 at 16:39:25:
: I currently have a 96 1.9L Z3 that I have loved since the day I bought it. Recently, I have been wanting more power and was about to make the jump to the M Roadster. Now, after reading the board I wonder whether the power I am looking for might easily be found in a supercharger. In the humble opinion of the board which is the better way to go??
Nothing wrong with supercharging a 1.9, but it won't get you as much power as an M roadster. It will cost less than trading for an M roadster though. For myself, I decided to trade from a 1.9 to an M roadster, because there were other things I liked (sports seats, roll hoops, etc.) that weren't on my '96 1.9 in addition to the power increase.
