Massive gains, which mods are these then?? The only way you will get massive performance is by supercharging which will cost you easy 5k+.

Now you have changed to the M3 you are now trying to say that the E46 is soo much better car than the e9x 335i/d ?

If you want to talk about reliability issues between the E46 M3 and 335i why not list them ?

E46 M3
VANOS problems
REAR SUB FLOOR !!!! - Your car only has 1 more year before it goes out the 10 year guaranteed period
Poor Brakes for a high performance car !!!
Very High Service + Parts costs
the S50 engine is piss poor for actually being able to tune - MAPS will only get you extra 10-15 bhp

Fuel Injectors / HPFP - Most cars were covered under the QEP that applied
Wastegate Rattle
Turbos - not many seem to fail unless cars have been heavily modified AFAIK
Tuneability - take your pick between a remap/JB4/Cobb/Vishnu + all the other goodies such as DP/FMIC/LSD

As said ^^^ not want to cause offence - but your post seems a tad hypocritical to the views you had previously given prior to changing from a 335d to the E46 M3

[ yes I am also on M3Cutters so know what the problems they say apply to their cars ]
Completely agree with every point you made there.

Looks like the tables have now turned in terms of the M3 being better than the 335d.
