    E46 M3 Is The Perfect Car — Love everything about this car. Very fast, and handles like a dream. A little hard to get the kids out of the back, but it is a two door car. The only major downside is that oil changes will set you back about $100.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Very Fast and handles amazingly

    Cons: Maintenance costs can be a little high.

    Best I've Owned, True Driving Experience — If you drive, then you need to drive an M3. Everything else is just a waste of time. I drove mine everyday and enjoyed it every time. You will never want to drive anything else after you take one of these for a spirited drive!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: None

    Phenominal Car — I love this car for its enthusiastic driving capabilities and when I press the gas pedal, a grin will always ride across my face. This car is a neck breaker, always noticed and complimented on how great of a ride she is.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: AWESOME CAR, RAW POWER and BEAUTIFUL LOOKS

    Cons: None excecpt, expensive.

    Ultimate Driving Machine — A stunning car to own, it is fast and wild and turns heads everywhere you go. It still outshines the newer models with its lack of refinement and ability to put the FUN back in driving. If you have never driven one you have missed out on an unmatched driving experience.

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

    Pros: amazing car

    Cons: costs crazy $$ to upkeep

    Bmw's Drive Nice.... — I have had this car since it was new. It now has just over 43000 miles on it. Which isn't to bad considering its just now 11 years old. My M3 for the most part was a second vehicle for me (not including my company truck that I drive weekdays during work hours) that I loved to take out on the weekends when it's just me or my wife and I. Not the most comfortable for the kids. I drive this car year round in all kinds of weather. With the traction control on boards it make doesn't skip a beat.

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

    Pros: Fast, handles great and has been very reliable.

    Cons: Maintenance can be expensive.

    Someday I Will Have A Nother — acceleration is just the best thing i ve ever drivin. Handling the M3 is one of a kind no dents and the tire are in great shap as well. Not sure how it would do in the snow but what a summer car. If you dont like a quick and sporty car then this one not for you

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: love the car need to buy a truck

    Cons: that i am saling it

    The Standard For The 4 Seat Sports Car — Your passengers will love the rear seating when the top is dropped, albeit a little more leg room could make it even better. Its a sports car with 4 seats. The seating is much better than the 911. She handles superbly. The 01 and )2 did not come with front strut bar and its a must have to improve overall handling. Great car to toss around. Its is comfortable and exciting to drive.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Compact, comfortable, luxurious open air driving

    Cons: Stock muffler needs help, mpg because you are always on the gas

    Amazing Car — This is my brother's M3 and let me tell you this- very fast, and very fun to drive. Once my Jetta is tuned, we will be racing eachother. His car has 333hp stock, but he also has an exhaust on it, my Jetta has about 325hp with the help of a turbo.

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

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Nothing
