Dec 2nd 2008 3:06PM In the past six months, I've driven a 135i, a 335i, an RS4, several 6.2 liter AMG's, and two M3's- a manual sedan and a DCT coupe..and I drove a 360 Spyder a year ago..
..twin turbo sixes feel nice, but it just isn't the same (even at low to mid revs) as having a mid-size, high compression V8 under the hood.
I dearly love those V8 cars, and I am planning to acquire a V8-powered M3 before they're phased out. To me, the driving experience is well worth the tradeoffs.

...but if it did happen, the world would be a much more boring place..
Aug 15th 2008 1:23AM Wow what a dumbass...
...I mean, $16k in custom work and no Whistle tip? WTF!?
Aug 11th 2008 9:20PM It does. It just doesn't refer to it as "3.0 TFSI"..

Paladins are getting nothing but great changes and improvements across the board.

Jul 11th 2008 1:40PM The point, Hugh, is comparing an essentially no-expense-spared Corvette, to a GT-R model that was built to be within the realm of affordability.
I will certainly be able to afford a GT-R some time within the next couple of years. But the ZR-1? no way.
Jul 11th 2008 1:58AM Really. Is name calling necessary? All it does is prove your immaturity. Douchebag. =P
All I'm saying is that it shouldn't be surprising that the ZR-1 is faster than the GT-R. It's lighter, has just as much (if not more) rubber, and signficantly more power. Even if the GT-R is underrated (I think it's in the low 500 range), the ZR-1 is still much more powerful.
I'd still take the GT-R. That's just me.
