Masterpiece — Excellent Performance. Never not exciting. Not too much or too little. Needs attention and care. Build quality is good, but needs care Gorgeous looks. Average maintenance. Fuel cost is not much, and parts are not too expensive. The most fun car to drive.

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

Pros: Excitement

Cons: None

Great Looks, Great Power, Great Fun, Great Car, Not As Great Price. — THE ultimate driving machine, perfect balance of power, handling, styling, and most importantly fun. Great build quality, higher cost of ownership than most cars, but is is basically a factory tuned, street legal race car so that's to be expected.

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

Pros: Pure driving enjoyment, nothing better for the price.

Cons: high cost of ownership

Its Guud. — Great brakes, revs well however, its a bit heavy though. Very well engineered, puts what power it has very very well and has great traction. Shifter is a bit long, but its nothing I cant change. I need 4 more words.

Pros: Its a great daily sports car

Cons: its weight.

M3 — So far, I have only replaced the cam sensors,alternator and the battery which were covered by the extended warranty. Replacing rear and front brake rotors and pads,flushing the brake fluids and engine coolant thru the dealer or any shop is expensive, so DIY.Just buy original BMW parts.

Pros: Looks, acceleration, solid ride, 22 MPG, Handling is very responsive, Very good brakes.

Cons: Differential is clunky with SMG II shifting, suspension very stiff for everyday use.

2003 Bmw M3 — An amazing car! The M3 I drove had the SMG gearbox and it worked beautifully. The engine revs freely and when worked, gives incredible perfomance. Handling is almost race-like and although I drove the M3 on an airfield, I would imagine it would be a great cross county machine. Pros: Performance/Handling Cons: None

Pros: Performance/Handling

Cons: None

Bmw M3 2003 — Nothing to say! It is a BMW M3 E46! There is no other Racecar for the every day use on the roads. Maby some but not with five seats. Good: A lot of Power! Perfect Handling! Brakes are amazing! And good Gas Miles! Not so good: Hight maintenance costs. Needs a lot of maitenance.

Pros: Performance

Cons: Hight service costs

Backroads Ftw — The car was not stock when I purchased it first of all, the suspension, wheels, braking system, tires, muffler, are all aftermarket items. Becasue BMW is very picky about weight distribution the car boasts a near perfect 50:50 balance. The suspension (KW schocks, eibach race springs, ground control sway bars) was tuned to have a neutral balance, (so ive been told) I am guessing that a stock M3 understeers. Therefore the car behaves very well at the limit and it is easy to correct if you find the rear end slipping out too much. As far as straight line performance goes, its ok, a quick car for sure. Braking performance is very impressive, since the stock calipers and discs have been replaced with Stoptech ST-40 calipers and slotted rotors, and now paired with PFC-01 pads will actually lock up the Toyo T1-Rs i was running before, part of my reasoning to switch to Michelin Pilot Sport Cups. Right now they are currently only in the front (suspension needs some TLC) which is pretty entertaining.

Pros: The car performs wonderfully

Cons: its becoming a track car.. ok thats not that bad, for me anyway

Bmw M3 E46 — This car was fantastic. Goes like stink, handled like it was on rails, Looked amazing, a real head turner. However . . . . Build quality wasn't the best. A few bits of interior trim would often fall off & it had quite a few electrical faults. I mainly put that down to the rubbish mechanics at lloyd bmw. Wouldn't trust them to change a tyre! It wasn't the cheapest car to own. set of four tyres was about £2k Cost of servising was also Mental. Mpg wasn't too bad, on a long motorway run i averaged 35 mpg, Put your foot down & you could easily average about 9. I was paying about £2500 insurance. So it isn't cheap. But if you can afford afford the costs, Worth every penny! An amazing car.

Pros: Power, handling, comfort, Looks

Cons: Costs!

Best All Around Everyday Car For The Sports Car Minded. — Best all around everyday car for the sports car minded. PROS: Great looks, great acceleration, extremely responsive and everyday driveable. No fuss to own and can seat up to 4 people and carry a lot of cargo. SMG transmission is the perfect blend of sporty technology and convenience. CONS: 21mpg average, higher repairs costs.

Pros: Great looks, great acceleration, extremely responsive and everyday driveable.

Cons: 21mpg average, higher repairs costs
