i highly doubt you've been looking around, otherwise you'd know the answer to your question.

The BMW M3 and M5 are not supercharged. BMW strongly believes in naturally aspirated (non-turbo/supercharged) engines. You will not find any BMW's using forced induction of any type.

You can supercharge an M3/M5 if you want to get more power, but the engine is already super-stressed. BMW "M" engines are better left as is. If you can't appreciate what a BMW M-car can already do, then you shouldn't buy one.

I suggest for you a Corvette, CTS-V, or GTO.

Why couldn't you have just answered the question. You're running away members. Some people don't know where to look and they come here to learn. This is a very negative forum.

Sometimes I consider the fact that my position against abortion is wrong. But a different type of abortion: Post-partum abortion. For people like What, who we don't want around anymore, so his poor, poor parents can decide to abort him, now that they realize that all he does is suck up the good air.

No, I don't just "suck up air". I'm one of the only members that actually answer people's questions. Would you call that "sucking up air"? Helping people = sucking up air? You fuckin' bitch. Shut up and stop posting things that deter from the thread topic.

i am a noob ... i dunno much about cars, - whats super stressed? is that just face value? an engine thats ..super stressed.? lol

and yes i have been looking around, but its prolly all the websites that give very breif descriptions (compared to the ones u go to..). i looked @ the bmw website and i either didnt really understand what they on about or i couldnt find it.

yes i do appriciate that M3 M5 but like i sed i dont know much.
do you people(ppl who know more about cars..) appriciate it ?
or do you people think its over rated? or whatever.(?)

I don't know what the hell you're talking about when you mentioned "face value".
What I meant was that the engines of the BMW M cars (especially the M3) are being pushed to their limits. Any more engine-tuning done to the car may cause the engine to detonate.

No, it's not overrated, but I wouldn't buy it. For $45,000+, I'd rather buy a Corvette.
