Yes, that's a deal.

Go all out with contrast; if you don't like it, give it 2 months and then peel / redo the excessive contrast.

We'll see. I suspect it's closer to 20lbs than 120lbs, and certainly the 200 is a joke for comparable equipment.

Bottom line is, they're going to 911/Cayman the M3. Kill the smaller cars with...

Based on the exact opposite ends of the options scale, I stand by my original comment: there's no difference between them.

Haha good joke. Since they already abandoned the sound and feel when they put 2 seconds of lag into the low rpm throttle response and cut 1000 rpm off the top of the M rev band.

So if that's...

Depends what you want. Straight line the S85 M cars are monumentally superior. Plus they are audio sex. Around a track, M3 is easily king of BMWs.

No. They have to be fixed rollbars that extend above the head/helmet at rest.

Under what organization? No BMWCCA will allow it, nor will PCA.

Also, "can" is not the same as "did". So, DID you?

Where can you get on track with a vert and no roll bar?

Other than that, get the vert. If you really want track days, get a separate track car like an E46 M3 or a track prepped E36 3 series.

Wheels look nice. Car looks like crap - lowered WAY too much, and the tires are WAY too low profile.

Too bad the wheels weren't on a reasonable vehicle - they'd probably look appealing.

No doubt the M3 simply isn't as raw as even a new 911, much less the 1988. It weighs 1000lbs more and has all the modern safety/sound/luxury stuff that deadens the whole operation.
