An Experienced, Smart, Fun Lady With Great Looks And Great Conversation — The good: Where to start, this care doesn't stop to amaze me. I just love it. An amazingly powerful engine that delivers more than 100 hp per liter without the need of forced air induction. The car is and feels very fast. Brakes are amazing. These are the competition package ones, so I don't know about the other versions. The suspension is extremely well balanced for comfort and sportiness. Again, this is the competition package which is a bit harder than the regular one. SMG transmission got some time to get used to but I love it.But that love doesn't extend to other manufacturers'. My Gallardo's eGear is not as good, in that one I would prefer a regular manual transmission. Looks: it is still a very elegant and modern look. The bad: It could lose some pounds. The navigation system sucks. The original mp3 player doesn't show the tracks names. Bluetooth only works with some Motorola phones.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

RASPY exhaust note, gas mileage, maintenance

Best All-round Fun Affordable Car! — looks sexy, fast acceleration amazing build quality and most fun engaging car i have ever owned. the biggest downside about owning the car is definately the cost of maintenance of the car...it gets pricy when having to do the service intervals. Also it has to use a special type of synthetic oil that ONLY BMW dealerships have a hold of so they monopolize the price of that!

Awesome Vehicle Under $25,000 — I love the handling of this car. I took it up to the blue ridge parkway a few months ago and was able to drive around 60 in 3rd on all but the sharpest turns. If you can find one that's a few years ago with less than 60K miles it is well worth the investment.

Pros

red imola seats, power, handling, looks, resale value, big money spent, big rewards given, m3 status is porsche's rival.

Cons

second cup holder is not useable with arm rest lowered. could use another 150 horsepower and torque, lol (ok being greedy with the extra power comment)

No Wonder Its Every Car Magazine's All Time Favorite Car — everything you have ever heard, everything you have ever read, everything, i mean everything is TRUE!!!!! very hard to pick out a flaw. amazing to drive, beautiful to look at, stylish, sexy, seductive. such a pleasure to drive. power is beyond satisfying. handles beautifully, stick shift, clutch feel and steering all live in harmony with each other. yes its expensive, even for a used car but its worth every penny. power never falls flat, stability at any speed in confident inducing, and the red imola interior adds to the sexual drive experience lol. i am truly in love with this car.

Flawless Power — This is one of the greatest cars in the world, 3.2 engine that produces 343 HP, the car is very comfortable, reliable and fast, I love driving it all the time. Quality is excellent; appearance is awesome for aggressive shape lovers and interior is very sexy for a racing car passionate. Cost? if you can afford it, just buy it. It is fun to drive the car on the roads all the time.

Bmw M3 Gtr, My Legend — Firstly, performance!! secondly, the Engine roar!! this car goes 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.5 seconds (manual), so love its accelaration!! but it has a poor body build!! even when you buy the car, you are not even aided with a radio, THATS CHEAP!! But to me, this car's a legend!!
