Ok, so what's a realistic budget to get an M3/4 to sub 13's?
I did a quick search in my area with autotrader and found an M3/4 stick listed for $15k and I'm assuming with a little more searching I could find one for $14k or a little lower.
I think I could probably reach my stated goals with an Evo Lancer or WRX, but they're a little too ricey for me....I want something that is a nice daily driver...heh...I want everything!!
The second car I owned was an Audi 80 4 cylinder, it wasn't fast but it was very nice to ride in on 1 1/2 hour trips to and from college 1 or 2 weekends a month...The exact oposite of the first car I owned...a '74 Nova (man I wish my wife would let me have another one of those)...
I haven't done any research on Jag S-types, are they fast at all? I know they are built on the frame of the ford contour, which kind of scares me a little.
And one more question, what's the difference between a 325i and the M3? is it just the engine and suspension and body effects? or is it the frame as well? I read a post on here that I think was saying something about putting an M5 engine into and M3? can this engine be put into a 325 and what kind of cost are we talking?
I know I'm asking a lot of questions, I just want the right car for me.
PS. I do enjoy the feeling of going around curves fast, and I don't indend to spend a lot of time at any track, curved or straight, I just enjoy the feeling of being pushed back into my seat more than the feeling of being pushed laterally around a curve.
