Pros

One of the most fun cars to drive on the road. Loved the look of it, loved the sound of the very mean engine. Once you get into the back seats, there is more leg room than you'd think.

Cons

This baby eats a ton of gas, which is what you'd expect (worth it though).

One Of The Most Fun Of All Cars I Have Ever Driven — This baby was one of my favorites of all time. I can't even begin to explain how fun this car is to drive. It fast and beautiful and sounds like a mean machine. It handles so well...rear wheel drive allows for spinning out, but then it corrects and corners like it's on rails. I would recommend this car to anyone.

Amazing! — Love everything about this car. excellent daily driver or weekend car. trunk space is excellent for a coupe and the fact that the rear seats fold is very useful for food shopping or any luggage. Overall, the car is beautiful and performs very well. excellent car for long trips, the track or as a small family car that gets a lot of attention.

2011 M3 Competition Package — One of the benchmarks of modern cars, and one of the last naturally aspirated V-8's out there, the E92 M3 is a classic that you should've driven at least once in your life. It's engine screams when you floor it.

Pros

Stylish, good looking car.  Lots of power and lots of stopping power.  Always turns heads!

Cons

Lots of buttons and adjustments.  More than just a "put it in D and go".

Great Car — I like the car - very fast and nimble. Great looks. Complicated adjustments to practically everything. Hungry for power and gets a little persnickety at low speeds. Rated as highly likely to be a future collectible car as this is last year of the normally aspirated engine.

Pure driving pleasure indeed. Can't wait for the mods!

Doesn't have i-drive and EDC, but not too worried about it

Pure Driving Pleasure — Can't wait till this car is modified. With 600hp under the hood I'm quite sure I can kick a 911's engine-toting rear end! The amazing road stability this car maintains, whilst pumping out 420hp is really awe inspiring! The E9x BMW M3's V8 naturally aspirated engine is said to be "the best engine mankind has ever created". Google it!

Must Have At Least Once In Your Life — Fully loaded rocket hard top convertible, dynamic damper control (extra), M Double Clutch Transmission, comfort access keyless entry, BMW Apps, enhanced premium sound, low mileage, heated seats, tire and wheel package (replacement), garage parked--engine growl will bring joy to any car buff's heart. 3rd and 4th child arrived since buying and no longer practical for this convertible loving family.

Best Car All Around — The BMW M3 is in a league of its own, this car is the fastest luxury sports car with 4 seats and comfort. It has all types of gadgets Blue Tooth, and it drives like a champ. I would recommend this car to any friend.

Loves It — Overall awesome car.. A little low on torque, due to the naturally-aspirated, high- revving nature of the V8. All service has been free, but she eats through tires. Slight roof rattles when top is up, amazing Novilla leather on seats and door panels, carbon-leather trim is neat. 6-Speed Stick, perfect clutch. M mode is set to stiffen the shocks and steering, and provide greater throttle response. Suspension in comfort mode is supple and luxurious through town. Car looks aggressive, yet understated, and enthusiasts always call out in love and/or jealousy.
