What would you choose C6 or E46 M3?

If you had to pick one car, would you choose a 2004-06 E46 M3 or a used C6 vette?

I like both cars, I know the C6 is faster unless I bought a used supercharged M3. Two totally different cars.

If you can live without some luxury and back seats this should be a no brainer.

Without a doubt the E46 M3. It is my absolute dream car. We had a C6 for a weekend and while it was fucking ridiculous power-wise it just can't compare in looks to the M3. Mind you, I don't know how quick an E46 M3 is because I have never been in one..for a drive that is.

Man, a E46 M3 CSL secondhand sitting in the garage just to drive on Sundays would be like Christmas every day.

Cool

C6 no contest. An 08 C6 would blow out an E92 M3 on the track. You'll regret it if you get the E46 M3.

E46 M3 with HPF kit.

I could use 650bhp in a car with four seats, hahaha.

Unless it's going to be your only car.. C6! Is that even a question? America finally got it right with that car.

... And yes, you could supercharge the E46 and be as fast.... but do you have any idea what that same amount of money would do to a C6!?

It wouldn't be my only car, would buy an E46 M3 that already had the charger on it because the amount to put one on myself is way too much. I need to test drive an 08 C6 vs. an 06' ZO6.

The C6 Turbo Kits out there right now are pushing the C6 to 700-750hp. They would kill any BMW, M or otherwise.

The c6 is a old fashion American piece of equipment that men drive to show everybody they are still young and try to pull birds without there wives knowing. Men in crisis drive these things , 750hp, and what are you going to do with that other drive it from home to the petrol station each day. It's one of those cars that say's, look how big my d**k is.

Like the Mustang, with its solid rear axle, no wonder why your economy is in the toilet, what's it been, 6 or 7 bank bail outs since 1987, man talk about learning the hard way.

What, Ford producers 1mil V8 F pickup trucks a year, damn no wonder we have no breathable air in Australia you all using it like there no tomorrow!

Obama will fix it, back to staple foods and jogging to work the Kenyan way, you will all love it, back to those real tight short RED shorts, ah yes disco days are back for you guys! and what better way than driving in a C6 with your bungy snuglers on, won't that look a sight! Stayin alive, Stayin alive, Ha Ha Ha Ha:
