    Hi, I did MEI so I can't give you an exact comparison but from what I've done I can say that FP2 is nicer then FP1 and M3 is nicer then M2 for me. As for FP3 I've heard that that's a nightmare in all specs so you should be aware of that. But if it isn't hard it isn't fun

    In my opinion in terms of difficulty it goes (easiest first)

    FP2 < M3 < FP3

    M3 = FP2 < FP3

    You are gonna find M3 hard if you struggle with M2, its comparable to the jump up from C3 to FP2 IMO.

    I might, don't know if I want to give myself the extra workload. Think I'll just learn S3 instead. :lol:
