Honestly I think both cars are very different and both have there pros and cons. Very hard to compare the 2 IMO

Also since you posted a pic of your m3, I feel it necessary I post a pic of my 328 Don't mind the side view mirrors, those will be getting replaced soon.

the m3 out handles the viggen any day of the week, but the m3 lacks versatility. which is why i sold it and got the vigg. with the saab you have a great summer and winter car, easily throw my snowboard and boots in it, pack it up and take a trip anywhere, COMFORTABILITY. just all around better as a daily car, and its got a sweet turbo and for the price to get a turbo kit for the m3 you can just buy a viggen. plus viggens are pretty rare and IMO its cooler to have an original car than to have the same ol' car.

And smoking every m3 in sight is a great thing lol

Little update on the project.... only had 4 hours to work on it tonight but its ready to be dropped first thing tomorrow. gonna start tearing it down and prepping it to send out to the machine shop on sunday.

We have had a few m3s around here and for going sideways and playing go cart on the street, or burnouts they are really cool. Otherwise I love my viggen. When you compare RWD to FWD there are always things you can't really compare.

are you reusing your current pressure plate or do you have a new one to go with your 6 puck?
