Hey SANguru,SANguru said:Mark,
I love that color!
How do you like your Tubi? Thinking of ordering it soon...
Yes, intially I was very interested in the comp pkg. A friend of mine, who has been racing BMWs and teaching in driving schools for well over a decade took one out at a track in Buttonwillow, CA. He currently has an E46 M3 with a basic setup for track work (Bilstein suspension, 6 spd, stock motor, track pads, SSRs with Kumho MXs). His review of the comp package is as follows:M5Kid said:Chuckc,
Any thoughts on the Competition Package? I just read an article in the latest Motor Trend that did a writeup on the M3 with Competition Package. They said that it was a very nice addition, as the brakes were much improved (fade free), and the quicker steering box and less instrusive DSC were welcomed changes.
If it were me, I would look into an M3 with Competition Package and SMG. If your plans were to do some track work, I feel the car would be more enjoyable and suited for that environment. Furthermore, a BBK wouldn't be necessary anymore. Perhaps GC coilovers and R-compounds would be the only changes needed, if your real serious.
Interesting and informative post, thank you. The feedback of your friend is a little different than that of what Motor Trend said, as they expressed that it was a step closer to the CSL, a step in the right direction.Final analysis: Too little, too late.
