We have perfect amounts of respect for those who lean to walk before they run. Your first post was to put it lightly a little bold and seemed a little arrogant to "barge" in here an ask who wanted to know about the Noble M12 as thought you were the resedent expert. Its not too late to recover and gain forgiveness...

I would also say that the M12 is a amazing car. It makes me love it even more when you find out that its faster, better handling etc than an M3, considering BMW are a multi billion company.

Yes, but they are two very different cars, if you want luxurious, fast and accomodating transport, you get an M3. If you want a fast car which is 50% Ford Mondeo...go for the Noble!

Note: remember...Brits agree with Brits..in this case you agree with me lol...jk

It's near enough 50% and the parts are crap, they even resorted to using the first generation Mondeo's tail lights!...also, the M3 CSL is still a luxurious car compared to the Noble

Who cares what the tail lights are, quite frankley, they dont change the perfomace of the car, i think you will find that most real sports cars use comman parts. For example, 80% of car manufacutres in europe all use one of 6 wiper motors make in a factory in poland. Do we really care? I dont think so. If im wizzing around a track in a lotus or noble is it a concern that 1/2 the noble is a focus mondeo cross breed and the exige is a mixture of a toyota celica and a MG rover??

Look at the F body series most of there parts are taken of things like the grand am and allsorted trucks. How many things has GM straped that 5.7 V8 into??? interesting question for another thread if we care.

I think you're missing the point, you're entirely right that nobody cares if manufacturers use identical wiper motors as It's not a visual aspect of the car, tail lights on the other hand are.
