If I would buy a sedan for 65000€, I would buy the BMW M3 E90/92.

I mean if your budget is roughly around 65 k .. Or do you have other alternatives worth considering for that money ? RS5 ? C63 AMG etc ??

Well BMW is not worth the extra power as obviously its power to weight is worse.. Reason i bring this up is that these two are the final choice if you go to look for a sports coupe on the 2-3 year secondary car market. Is Porsche worth those USD 10-20 k more (adding PDK lets say). Difference on track for a hobby racer is only minimal !

Is Porsche truly worth the extra money or is BMW worth the extra power ?
