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.

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

Its a geat daily driver and does well on gas for how hard i drive it, braking is great, never at a need for anymore breaking. will put a smile on your face every time you open that s54 up.

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

///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.

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.
