bottom line, the sc has more potential. when i look at an sc, i see a hidden supra just waiting to be unleashed. the sc has so much more of an aftermarket for the engine just because its a 2jz. also i think there are alot of sexy body kits like the auto-couture, and the wald. i think that the sc is one of very few cars that maintains a classy feel even if it has over 1000hp and tq to the wheel. but honestly if you dont want a 10sec car, but you still want fast and sexy go with a 98+ sc400, put on a good exhaust and intake and watch the m3 fall behind.
