I ///m Power! —

Back in the days when tuning hit its peek when I was in CEGEP. This was my dream car, and I prayed one day for it to be in my possession. That day came sooner then I had expected. At the time, I drove the Jetta around and mod it inspired by the M3. If you look back at the Jetta, it had M3 style wheels. When came time for me to buy a new car. I had not even look at the M3 as I was thinking it is still an unattainable dream. Instead, I was in search of a different kind of sports coupe. More reliable and cheaper in maintenance, an alternative to my dream M3; the Infiniti G35 coupe. In search of a Pearl White with black interior and 6-speed transmission, the G35 had far-fetched search criteria. However, I was fortunate enough to have ran into 4 of them in my path, yet none of them felt right. One lucky turn of events, a M3 Coupe in Alpine white rose to the market, without even putting in the search effort. Unbelievable find! I knew it had to be mine. After many trips to the bank, and thorough negotiations... The dream became a reality! This is love. Before this purchase I had tried many G35, 350Z, a Porsche 911 and a Audi S4, but it did not have the right feeling. What those cars where lacking is the balance of power, handling, and usability. I wanted a sports coupe, there eliminating the Audi. I needed the rear seats, thus G35 shot to the top of the list rendering the 350Z & Porsche useless, since the seats in the Porsche are made for anorexic kids and models. The G35 lacked a godly handling, such was found in the M3, given it did have a more musical exhaust howl. Undeniably, my heart remained with the M3. Once behind that wheel it felt like you where in control of one of Gods chariots! Stability, control, power... all in perfect harmony. To top it all off, it can still be used as a grocery getter given its spacious boot. The sound from the Inline-6 is incredible, a little too raspy to my taste but nothing short of the Beethoven musical notes of motorsports. Absolutely, pure driver's car. No gimmicky technology added, a completely unrestrained best yet still very civilized. The build quality is absolutely exquisite. Can you expect any less from BMW? One look and you can say it is bold, very solid, and German muscular. Yet very easy on the eyes as it isn't too busy. Even those side vents became an inspiration of plethora for many other car design today. The engine design is definitely one of the greatest, no wonder the ///M had been the power-plant for, even until today, one the fastest cars in the world; the Mclaren F1. Extremely great follow up, from the legendary E30 M3. The E46 M3 really lived up to the hype. Truly and undeniably the real last purest M3 of its kind.

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

Pros: Power. Handling. Looks. Perfect balance of daily driven car and performance. Wears the ///M badge. Legendary.

Cons: Weak subframe. Subframe has to be re-enforced for those real purest who enjoys spirited driving once and a while. Cost of maintenance, even though it comes once in a while.

6 Speed Manual Is A Lot More Fun Than Smg Paddle Shifters — Interior trim should be a lot nicer considering it's a luxury performance car. Painted trim is tacky and gets warped in the hot California sun. Performance is great. Repairs are expensive. Gas mileage is pretty good. It is a nice design. The quad tip mufflers and side fender grilles really make the car look good.

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

Pros: It has 333hp stock

Cons: Insurance is pricey

Top Notch — Perfect interior and best exterior BMW ever made. One standard grip I have about all cars is the weight.. At 3400 lbs its not a beast but It could be a few hundred pounds lighter. That can be done easily thought..

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: If you want the best performing BMW ever made.. This is it.

Cons: It seems to go through tires fast.. :)

I Would Buy It Again. — I love this car! It is fast (~5s to 60), gets 24mpg highway, handles great, and has over 100k miles on it with very few problems. There are minor details that I would prefer to be better, mostly fit and finish on the trim etc.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's just a great car!

Cons: none

Love It To Bits! — Acceleration of 0-100kph 5Sec, have driven up to 220kph (no problems there) Excellent build quality could do with better sound system though. Surely not an economical car to drive. Unique color certainly is good. 19" deep dish wheels are awesome!

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

Pros: Genuine driver's car

Cons: cost of ownership perhaps

'02 Bmw M3 Coupe — I love it - looking for more acceleration, so I'll need to perform a differential upgrade and maybe a chip. I've done a lot with this car and it's my baby. HK sound system sucks. The weatherstripping is beginning to come loose now. Great weekend racer and daily driver.

Pros: It's the perfect blend of performance, luxury & practicality.

Cons: I still want more, interior is beginning to wear out.

M3 - Driving Machine — Performance level is insane, and the most fun car to drive. I drive as an everyday driver, but even so, I enjoy everywhere I drive. Build quality is extremely endurable. Appearance is beautiful and well shaped, Fun factor is off the charts. 17-24 MPG isn't bad for something with 333 HP (mine 360 HP) Best drifting car I've ever driven. Gets the most attention. Enjoy!!

Pros: Car never gets old!

Cons: None.

Bmw M3 — The car sould be called BMW BA for Badass...lol 150 mph with ease...not too shabby! Performs like it's on rails. The interior is leather heated seats....factory alpine cd player, harman kardon speaker, 2 kicker subs, 1800 watt MA amp..19" rims, lowered, $2500 dinan exhaust..... buy one today! The inline 6 in this car one the world award for overall quality for 6 years in a row...

Pros: Everything..... car is amazing

Cons: ummmmmm, oil is $18 a quart

Emma 3 — Best all around car in my opinion (performance, safety, practicality). Performs amazing, naturally aspirated high revs make it a screamer, but simple clean lines in jet black keep it a sleeper. Rear seats down suffices for most trips to Lowe's. Can fit 4 when needed, and can take the baby and the bulldog on joyrides. Still one of the best engines and all around capable cars on the road. I'll drive till it won't go anymore (doesn't appear to be any time soon).

Pros: Thrill-ride Performance with enough practicality

Cons: Stiff ride, various creaks and rattles, starter motor failure caused some headaches.
