I'm not missing the point (E46 M3). There are still other cars I prefer with a manual but I have owned both, and I choose SMG for that platform.

Are you fucking serious? It's CANADA. You guys don't even have enough cars registered to clog up a parking lot.

Given traffic not being an issue and the car being strictly track / autox, would you still take the smg? Also with plans to boost of some sort down the line

At that point it doesn't really matter.. but you'd probably be faster with SMG.

let's keep this strictly business.

we know that Canada is the 3rd world and as such there is little traffic caused by the local ox carts.

we also know that Vitolo has horrible taste in jeans.

back on topic.
