In Reply to: My view of the New M Coupe posted by MO on January 07, 2001 at 21:21:15:

The new 3.2 only has 22 more pound-feet of torque than the older(96-99)M52. You can add an exhaust, an intake, a chip, some cams, and no cats, and you will probably be pushing every bit of 280-290 pound-feet of torque. Much faster than the new one without the wait. Trust me, never buy a first year production car from ANYONE, too many bugs to be worked out. Not worth your time and expense. Go with the 2000 and live a little. If you really want to have some fun, convert it back to OBD1 like I did on my M3. Read my mod list at the link below. It is titled, "My Mod List, At Last!!!"
