Pros

Great head turning car, Great Handling power and control. Great weekend driver weather that be on the track or going to work. Will stop on a dime or maneuver you through any situation. Only in the shop for routine Maintenance.  

Cons

Not good for car seats, oil and gas is pricy

Amazing Car, A Must Have If You Love Power And Driving. — This car is everything you could ask for, it will do anything you want it to, easy to work on and fun to drive. Very reliable and is never in the shop, customizing is very easy on this car, anything you could imagine, you could put on or into this powerful engine.

Hugs Dry Roads , Even Fairly Rough, (crpss Brpnx Expressay), — This is a really cool looking head turning and very fun to drive, solidly built automobile, The stereo needs a speaker upgrade though , as the Harmon Kardon are junk (BSW papercones are good), The loud muffler is too loud to hear the radio so I went to stock with no loss of power, Comfortable front seats and a very solid build

Amazing Car — I have owned and drive BMW's for most my life but the M product they offer is amazing. The car gets a lot of looks by onlookers and compliments. The maintenance on this vehicle is affordable for the average BMW enthusiast.

///m3 E46 — Acceleration: 0 - 60 in 4.5 secs. Top speed: 204 mph= 326.4 km Very fun and sporty to drive, very nice car, it has never needed repairs. It's the euro version, so it has a 3.3L engine with 343 Horsepower. Very nice and fun to drive in a racetrack, has a lot of grip, fun when traction control is turned off.

Red Beauty — Very fast car, responds whenever you need it to. Its color and beauty turns heads on the street each time i take it out. Year 2006 but still looks and smells new as if it came out of the factory. Beauty

SMG is too hard, The car is a bit noisy

Bmw M3 E46 — Acceleration is insanely fast. Braking hasn't been a problem with this car. The car is very tight around corners but sometimes a bit hard. Build quality is pretty good. There haven't been many problems with the car. However, repairs on this car, especially because of how old it is are expensive. Just for the 50k mile checkup it cost 2 grand. This car is definitely fun to drive and its a very uncommon car to see in my area

Gogo's M3 — Best car ever own, it has lots of power and torque, it looks great too. Handles like a dream. I doesn't need constant repairs, but when it does it costs a lot. The fun factor is WOW, greatest car of all time :D

Fast, tight chassis, controllable oversteer.

Cons

Half of the people that drive it don't care about its performance. =(

Somewhat Edgy Car Catered Towards The Performance Oriented Individual. — It is a very tight package of performance and luxury. The engine and transmission are very sensitive depending on the transmission. This can be annoying to the average driver. I like it.
