the ultimate matchup. while the m3 CSL might be a high thrumming derivative of the 3 series sedan, the engine and suspenion certainly prove itself. it has room for four people if i'm not mistaken equals the 1/4 mile and 0-60 times of both of these pure sports cars and runs slalom pretty quickly. both in my opinion embody the soul of a sports car. anyhow what do you think. the ferrari only has a 30 horsepower advantage (keep that in mind when you give you reason) both have smg trannies. so what do you think. i think it would be pretty even.
