You thinking of getting new M3.. ?

What engine is that using? I understand its similar layout to 135i.....

Those Megane's are pretty quick when mapped and they only weigh @ 1340 kg. I think a stock 135i or even stock manual TTRS would be pretty even IMHO to a mapped Megane.

Yep, the M3, when it comes out, is def an option but I'm not sure I can pull the trigger on a 60K car (with a few choice options, of course). I think a 9 month/year old example could be a better option financially speaking.

I believe the new M3 will be an N54 and only 3 L's. This is what the latest article in Car are saying.

Enjoy the jb4 and I hope these greasy roads improve some time soon
