Well said!! Also i asked HPF Chris about their plans with the current E9x M3's and he said that they dont plan on making a turbo kit for them because with V8 you have no room to fit turbos and make a kit up to HPF standards

I'm sure he can get an 08 m3 still under warranty from the dealer for about 40-48k that leaves you with 18k to spend with this you can build a custom turbo kit for the new M3 and use standalone for the tuning, or he could get a NOS system still make good power.
18k on the E9x would go quick,you get SC kit/exhaust/wheels and you already went over the budget,standalone on the E9x m3 would take ALOT of time and money so for custom turbo kit done properly be ready to spend 40k++
