Hi all, new to the forum, am looking for a new passion now I am finished with Porsche having suffered a typical catastrophic engine failure on my late 996. I was totally obsessed with 911's mostly drawn by the unique handling but my confidence in the legendary Porsche engineering has evaporated - wait and see how many 996 and 997 engines blow up over coming years!!! I have driven Smg E46 and Dct E90 and I like, I love the v8 engine but as the M3 I will buy is a third car I need opinions on whether to blow £25k plus on an E90 or nearer £10k on the E46... Or can a CSL justify its higher value??? Buying price is not the main issue, residual values and cost of overall ownership is what I balance against driving enjoyment , both editions look equally appealing! I assume insurance will be in same ball park as for 911's? I want a clutch less version- which variant should I plum for.
