I think that would be a no brainer: an '09 V

How well did the resale value hold up on the other side of the pond?

The M3 is a hundred leagues ahead of a SRT-8 Challenger.

All that and you get an M3?!?! I hope you don't run into a true Nuremburg champion over there.

Ok enough bias aside. The other guys are hating on the Challenger, but I guess over on your side of the pond it would be a nice oddity.

And oh ya, your posts don't mean anything to me without pictures. So get em up.

I'm curious to see what their race cars look like. And what do these race teams do about the rear end?

even the VR didn't have a wildly diffrent diff. just don't wheelhop it and you'll be fine...

ive seen that car race in the cold, heat, rain and dry and never remember it being downed during a race by a blown diff. with all that power, and such little weight im curious as to how they kept the hopping to a min. was it the tire used? suspension setup? Has anyone looked into this and tried to apply it to our street cars?

and you say not a wildly different diff, so does that mean its different then the production versions? if so where did they get it?

and you say not a wildly different diff, so does that mean its different then the production versions? if so where did they get it?if I remember, it was a stock diff but everything around it was different. suspension points, calibrations, everything. I don't think there was anything we could adapt to our cars. how about the engine a foot further back into the cockpit and the driver's seat almost back into the backseat area?

I was speaking about things in regards to just the diff. we could mount the motor further back and turn the tranny on its side for ground clearance....but then it would be an odd 4dr car to drive around.

but if they use the stock diff, we just need to find good ways to eliminate the hop. I wish it was easy to do as it is to say
