  5. Re: kinda looks like a stretched M3

    Well, this car might be to Pontiac as the M3 is to BMW, but it definitely doesn't fall into the same class as the M3. The $20,000 price difference oughta throw somebody off.<!-- Signature -->
     
  7. Re: kinda looks like a stretched M3

    yeah, i'd be very surprised to see it doing as well as an M3 performance wise.<!-- Signature -->
     
  8. Re: kinda looks like a stretched M3

    I agree with topp dogg.

  11. Re: kinda looks like a stretched M3

    maybe more torque, but it's not going to be as fast as an M3<!-- Signature -->

  13. Re: kinda looks like a stretched M3

    The XLR will retail for something like $80,000. It and the M3 fall once again into different classes. Can't really be compared, camaro. You can put up a Corvette against the M3, but the XLR has a somewhat different purpose from the Vette. The platform doesn't really make the car.<!-- Signature -->

I think the bmw is luxury to. Am I right?? Oh, and if the platform doesn't make the car your right, because the gto is based on the monaro, but still is a gto just like the old gtos were just chevelles, but were alot better in hp.<!-- Signature -->

    This is actually a good comparison. An m3 is a boring family car with nice rims, a nice engine, and some badges. Remind you of the GTO? It should. No wonder you compare it to the m3 and bmws all the time.<!-- Signature -->

  17. Re: kinda looks like a stretched M3

    the m3 has perfectly balanced handling, that is what you pay for. (worth every penny IMHO.) i'd say it's safe to assume that this car does not have that kind of balance, and never will. there is more to a car than "which is faster". the BMW just has that "fun factor" that people expect from the m3. <!-- Signature -->

    so you're admitting the m3 is superior? by the way, what is with all you people and your 100000 line signatures? it's useless crap in there. you post a 3 word comment and the giant berth of your signature comes through with it everytime. <!-- Signature -->
