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

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.

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

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

Great Car For A Everyday Use That Is Still Able To Turn In Speeds Over 170 — Overall a very capable car. Though in corners it reminds one that its suspension is still from the standard 3 series. The build quality is lacking as there are many complaints on the rear subframe failure. Also the interior B and C pillars fabric is known to fall off. The rear deck rattles with too much bass or on rough roads. The alt will fail at around 40K. The cats often fail around the 50K-60K mark. The engine requires specific oil 10/60 that is only available from the dealer. The styling of the car still turns heads though the last model is 4 years old. While the first model is 8 years old. The S54 is a great engine and the Getrag trans is a good transmission though is often picky when selecting gears 1-3 often amplified in cold weather . Fun factor is still a 8 out of 10. I would buy again

Hard To Beat A M3 — Very fast & forgiving car. It handles like a dream. My second M3, can't see how any other car can measure up to it. Not the most comfortable ride, but if you just care to be comfortable, stay on the couch or just buy a Lexus.
