Actually I had the 4-door that was a little lighter, fast(0-60 in 5.2 vs 5.6 ) pulled .92g's vs .89 all this compared to the coupe. I don;t know why it just was. BTW the 98 m3 only had 500 imported that year wish I hadn;t sold her now

But do you have a supercharger? I am guessing so? All I need is a Miata MX-5 to do the spanking, . You hit up the Mazda Zoom-Zoom Live! Event this year at Reliant Park? Those little ****ers are a blast to drive!

Yeah, I know my SS handles like complete dogshit compared to those Miata's and RX8's, but they just don't have the power. My buddy has a Z and loves it, they handle like a champeen as well.

Umm.....I completely agree. Man, if you want to really embarass some cars with your Z, get a nice little twin kit for it, I have seen some with as little as 6 psi go over 400rwhp, which is very impressive, those VQ's can really make some power with just a little bit of boost!
