Well John....I've had a 1998 BMW 328is and a 2006 BMW Z4 M Coupe and I can tell you that they were both nice cars and the M Coupe was pretty quick too.....however I find my 2012 SRT8 handles exactly like the M Coupe when I'm driving it in Sport Mode.....however the SRT8 would kill it power wise. I so glad I have the SRT8 and would never go back to the BMW's.
The SRT8 in Sport Mode is a blast to drive and sticks to the road pretty damn good too.
