But I do believe they're built for a different audience. I personally see dozens of Zs, STIs, EVOs at the track.
But rarely rarely so I see Non-M 3s at the track . I guess the marketing department hopes to change that! I'd love to see more 3s at the track

Big willow March 24th SoCal people!
It's interesting you bring this up. It's a tiwn turbo 300HP inline 6 compared to the 4 cylinder turbo STi or EVO. It allowed a ton of people to hop into a really nice and powerful BMW with a ton of potential for under $50k. It depends on the audience for sure, but I bought it to see what it can do in the 1/4 mile and maybe some auto cross here and there =).

I also like that you can set yourself apart from the rest. Some still think my car is an M3 lol.
