I love my 2.8 Z and frankly cannot imagine what a handful the M version must be. Something a bit scary about 300+ horses in a tiny Z but I would like to make the upgrade one day. That aside I'll need to get something with more seats in the next year or 2 as then I can use my 'fun' car more often than it gets used now (3 young kids to take places means the Galaxy V6 has to do!) So I'm thinking after this Z instead if going up to an Z3M rather go for a M3 cabrio. I've had a E46 330i in the past and in that size car it has to be an M, the normal ones are just too civil compared with my Z granted my Z has allot of mods to make it the way I want). Also no LSD on the normal 3series and I like a LSD. I'd always go cabrio and happy with compromise in rigidity compared with the coupe as lap times are not priority. E36 Evo's seem to be under 5k now for good ones. E46's quite a bit more. I'm just wondering what peoples experiences have been making the change either way?
