If money was no object, what would you rather have, a top of the range M3 with all the toys or a top of the range R32

I'll cast the first vote - R32 all the way [:D]

Comparing a £50k car to one 1/2 the price, I would have thought that 99% of people would go for the M3 if they actually got the 2 cars together at a dealership and had to choose there and then.

The 1% would no doubt include Wish as he hates BMW's[:D]

I personally could afford a new M3 but I wouldn't buy one because I think the R32 represents much better value for money and if and when I pay that sort of money for a car it would have to be a proper sports car preferably with a top that comes off, i.e a Porsche[^]

I was the highest bidder on said plate, but he wants more than I'm willing to pay. Still working on it though.

Thanks again for the tip off mate.

No worries, the last i saw it was at a quite a price ?

What did that other one make at auction ?

I know how much he paid for it (the number you were bidding on )

I think it was £4400, I went £100 everytime he went and ducked out at £4300. As you know when all the bits and bobs are added on it makes it an expensive game.

Ooops.... sorry for nicking the thread.[:I]

Well that would have been a nice profit for him, cos it went cheap at the DVLA auction.

(cheap for that kind of number)

Keep at him mate !

No, I was on about the 19 went for £4400 plus premiums. The other one on Ebay I didn't reach reserve but he wants around the same figure as the other one, if you get what I mean.

See if I was going to be honest and not worry about upsetting anyone I would post something along the lines of:

"only a complete moron would buy an r32 over an e46 M3..." but I don't want to offend anyone so I'll just say given the choice of the 2 I would buy the M3, if after owning it I decided it wasn't all that I would flog it, buy the r322 and have one hell of a month on the cash left over [:D] the £20K plus left over would pay for a nasty habbit [:D][:D][:D][:D][:D][:D][:D][:D][:D][:D][:D]

So what had you written the first time round...[;)]

Well I did kinda say I would be willing to sell the M3 if it wasn't all that, or I lost my licence...

Depends how much money you have! A simple chip gives you 360 plus removes the limiter and thats only a few hundred quid.

Not sure what the limit is tho!

Now whatever you do to these cars is going to cost big bucks...superchargers or turbos. Superchargers for both are in development as I understand it? I know the M3 SCs can add around 150-160, but they hve a habbit of going bang. DA Motorsport have a 750BHP kit coming out for the E46 M3.

Id obviously go M3 but not for bias reasons; also because no matter what you do to an R32, its still a Golf. As has been said these cars arent even in the same league
