    Which car to get ?

    My lease is about to end so I'm thinking of either m3 (dct) or 335is dct or manaul, what would you guys suggest ? Am I gonna hate m3 after 420whp 335i ? I really like the idea of 335is with dct but some say it's slipping sometimes with big power, is it slipping at launch or rolling start too ? Because I don't care much for take off as much as rolling, and is it going to be quicker than my auto ? Also manual is an option for 335is but some say that manual on this car is slower than auto, is that a fact ? I mostly care for like 40-60mph rolls, so what would you suggest ? Thanks !

    I would personally get a M3. When you drive it, you'll see that it is on a whole other level than a 335i. A buddy of mine has a 335is with DCT. He has had Dinan stage 3 for a couple weeks, and it is starting to slipping at it's first track outing last week in second gear. I would stay away from dct personally on the 335is, on the M3 it is a must.

    No, you won't hate the M3 after a 420 whp N54. The M3 is the more satisfying car to drive in every way. If you really want more power, and more power than the n54 will see, you can always SC. With bolt on's you can do 117 traps and don't need meth to do it.

    Ummm e36 m3 turbo'd. Every once in a while fully built 1's pop up for sale. Usually they make well over 500whp on pump fuel(650-670 with meth), and much more with standalones.

    He isn't saying he wants to wait because his lease is ending, he specifically said what he was interested in.

    Your reading comprehension is as good as ever.

    1M is a nice choice.

    Cool dude, first suggest an E36 out of nowhere when the guy doesn't ask for it. Then suggest he waits years for another car. Then suggest something completely different than what he himself asked for feedback on.

    Forum would be better if all the posters had basic reading skills.
