Random story on the topic of the E46 M3....my manager's boss, the director of the engineering office, has a E46 M3 SMG. Coming back to work from lunch run we were both at the light and he was following me. As the light went green I went for it. My car is DSG(in D) stage 1 and I went full throttle to about 80mph and pretty much the whole time he was on my butt....

333 bhp inline of Bavarian horses is a lot.....

Don't e46s trap around 104 mph. I think that is the very top for Stage 2 GTIs.

I'm only bringing this up because I had an encounter with one today.

otoh the GTI felt just right at stage 1 or stage 2 power levels with it's fwd chassis.
Curious as to how the Stage 2 and 3 guys are fairing with torque steer. Seems crazy to me to make that much power happen in a front wheel drive car. Sure, the GTI doesn't handle like most fwd cars out there, but I get a little torque steer sometimes stock and can't imagine stage 2 and 3. Must be a little hard to manage eh?
