There are a lot of M3s that will kill me, but they'll have to make 400hp or more. I know what a E46 M3 can do, that is why I sold it! Fast but lacks the precision that light weight cars have (still have the pics to prove it). Too bad you had a bad track experience, try going out with Image Racing club. They always run full days (9am-5pm) and full track on most long weekends. There is one more left in Oct. but since it is the last one, it'll most likely be pack. There might be too much activity for your liking.
Bitter??? If you've seen my car you'll know there is nothing to be bitter about. A lot of people judge a bimmer by the badge at the back, if that is the case than my car is just a 325iS.
By the way, your car looks sharp.
