the M3 V8 should have been in there, or some variant. This is nothing more than a tuned 135i with a LSD and a bodykit.

And M3 suspension bits, wheels, etc etc.

Putting the M3 engine in it would be pretty pointless from BMWs perspective.

Why do we have to get another ignorant M3 owner posting on this board? Yes, your car is awesome and I do love it...now go back to your board and be negative and passive/aggressive over there!

did I say something to you that you need to get all butthurt? Is the 1M your mother? There are plenty of x35i trolls on our forum but I learned to live with it because the mods don't give a crap either. So the 1M is ugly. So what? at least it's not a 550GT.

Just because I take interest in BMW as a whole does not relegate me into one forum because you might not like what I have to say. The only ignorant person here is you.

+ 1. nothing more, nothing less.
- the 4-pipe exhaust adds weight to the car, only for the looks but not useful
- all M3 stuff (mirrors, wheels, suspension, etc)

M has become a tuning company.
M stands for Money, in stead of Motorsport.

I am sorry, wish it would be different but it's not ...

Nope.. the M3 isn't direct fuel injected so it doesn't have the high pressure pump. It's old school and reliable.
