: To prove that many people on this board have inflated egos and closed eyes I am taking this survey. To me the order of best Z3 to worst is M--2.8/2.3---------1.9

: M is awesome

: 2.8/2.3 similar performance with enough get up and go to make it a true sports car

: 1.9 slow slow slow, not worthy of BMW badge

: this is not even an arguement

I've driven both the 2.3 and the 2.8,no question there's a difference in acceleration and
torque. Of course the M is awesome.It's always a question of is it worth the extra $? In Canada, with pricing and options vs std. the way they are
the choice was clear. In the U.S. most people see the 2.3 as the best value.....look at the sales numbers.If you were in Europe you'd think twice about buying the M considering what they pay for gas!

Each model has a place depending on your particular situation and where you live.
