If you read the part where it compares the Z to the M3, it gives the M3 the edge over the Z, saying its quality is better over the Z

quality isn't even in the formula
also, smg cost more, and I'm pretty sure 6spd got better time, so I'm guesing if it was 6spd m3 would win z as being a better car for a buck

You sure it has the green light? Ive heard different things about it. I would love to see the CSL M3 on the track, it would be an amazing car. But remember what happened with the LTW? That was pretty bad for BMW when they were selling them for below MSRP. U sure the CSL is comming?

How so? Things seem to close to call now. The G35 and the 330 are equal, but the 330 is more expensive. 3-series and the IS300, similar performance, and the 3-series is more expensive. Cant think of other examples but you get the picture.

A bit OT, but I thought about what if I had to pick between the G35 Coupe or 330Ci, which one. The G35 is damn sexy, more power, and cheaper. Would I buy the 330 because it's a BMW? Hrrrrrrmmmmmmm ... or is that a fair comparison?

because BMW is known for their handling and quality, and safety...plus..i like 330ci more than G35!

i noticed on the Acura 3.2tl and the 323ci..both have xenons...but the bmw xenon is better

I feel the Z was lucky to be in a comparison with corvettes and porsches. Maybe thats why it is not getting the credit most would think it would. of course it is a wonderful sports car. and for a lower price, which means why I am not the most surprised to see why the porsche, corvette and bmw scored higher.
