thebigjimsho said:well, if you were spending the money to mod the M3, you'll be very happy at the amount of mods per $$ you can get with the V. I think most people here agree that forits flaws, the joys of the car greatly outweigh them. Besides, you'd be coming in at a great time. Suspension pieces are coming out. The beefier '06 diff is out and will soon be on any '04,'05 that fail. 3 different parties are exploring an aftermarket diff/cradle combo.
The '06 has a bushing "fix" that soem are happy with, others are not. Many of us bought cradle bushings from Specter that are a bit beefier that many are happy with. But it doesn't totally get rid of wheelhop. What it will allow you to do is launch cleanly, if you know how to slip the clutch properly.m3sweet said:Does the "06" have a different differential... one that will fix the hop on hard start?
where are you from?m3sweet said:I currently drive a modded M3... considering the CTS-V
I prefer American... 4 doors and a V8.
Should I make the switch?
What about Wheel Hop? The M3 is so planted!
What about reliability?
Some comments... thanks!
I meant if his M is paid off.... Take the money that he would dump into a new V and save it for a year or two.BowenCT said:Huh?
Your joking, right??? Even with my car stock I was walking away from M3's like they were standing still. Here in LA, there are M3's everywhere, so I have plenty of M kills. Now, with just my intake and Stealth Tune and banging the gears, from 60 - 120, I put about 4 cars on an M3. Its ugly. Regardless of what the V's dyno, out on the road, there is no comparison in terms of speed. I think pretty much anyone whose actually raced an M3 will agree with me. Torque rules!propain said:Balls to the wall with comfort? The V is awesome. Is the V really much faster than the M? I dont think so..
HP is also one of those factors, you can state that a car has all the HP you want before the drivetrain. Give me the numbers after. They dont want to do that because these cars lose almost 30-40% HP by the time it hits the pavement.
Speed? Put me in an 06 M3 and ill hang with any 06 V.
Save your money, get the M5. :cool2:
Just curious as to what cars you are talking about that are loosing 30-40%?propain said:HP is also one of those factors, you can state that a car has all the HP you want before the drivetrain.
