Definitely a great car for hauling all the beer to a meet.

Well I dont know about white trash, but cadillacs style with all the angles makes me feel like I am driving a ghetto stealth fighter. The stance was nice but the *** was all wrong on the CTS-V and rear visibility was total crap, and it was even worse for my wife who is only 5 feet tall. Plus its my bias but cadillacs are for old geezers and drug dealers/professional athletes

I work for Kaiser.
I would be happy to attend a meet, but my miata is now undergoing an engine rebuild at AR to try and rectify my low oil pressure issue which looks like it might have been bearing clearances.

The M3 is probably more like 12.6 or 7 but C&D got something like 12.4 with the DCT so it should be close.
I really did like the Boss 302 but sadly it only has two doors, I also read about problems with chinese built getrag transmissions in the mustangs, but the motor and the suspension are sweet.

Partner at work picked up a new e90 m3 a few months ago and he loves it. He just went to the track with it too last week. I like me e90 335 too. Good pickup

Excellent pickup. Those I must ask, did you consider the CTS-V Wagon at all? Might be my own personal preference for wagons, but that thing is sex on wheels.

I like the functionality of wagons no doubt and it pisses me off that we don't get stuff like the M5 estate, etc I don't really like the cadillac style anyway(although I do like the current CTS-V better than the old one), but the wagon has some weirdness at the C-pillar, it just looks tacked on the sedan. However in no way is it worse than the coupe which just looks bizarre at the back to me.

What I would do for an M5 estate...

In other news, I saw an M6 on the highway yesterday.

If you do get the M3, please report back with a little writeup. The convertible model is on my list.
It's funny, cause this now looks like the hyundai genesis to me.

The 135i has 300+hp?
