    Supercar Performance With Everyday Practicality. — A car for every situations.Fast enough to sit with a Porsche 911(and numerous more illustrious cars)while subtle enough to tour the open roads with comfort for 4.Interior is nice without being overly opulent with enough optional extras to cater for most drivers needs.

    Pros: Towering performance.Handling as both a sports car and an everyday city car exceptional,subtely aggressive looks.Quality interior.

    The Most Beautiful, Fun, And Balanced Car For Everyday's Driving — Stock suspension nicely setup, perfect height for 19" and 285/30-19 rear. Probably BMW's last Inline-6 NA M3.

    Pros: 0 problem areas
    Generous power-to-fuel consumption ratio

    Gorgeous, Fast. Is There Any More To Say? — The M3 is the best thing to your own street-based racecar. Lots of people say M3's ride rough, but I don't notice any difference.

    Pros: Pretty much everything

    Cons: It's just shy of a race car, so it's a little temperamental

    "bolted To A Six-speed Manual Transmission, The M3 Can Hit 60 Mph In 4.8 Seconds." —

    The greatest car ever built. This car is by far the greatest machine ever built. Yes, the car was expensive, but well worth the price of admission. The car i have has the SMG tranny, and for the most part, it works fantastically. With all that said however, the ride is great, handles like on rails, and can easily do over 155mph, so be careful. cruising at 120 sometimes feels like 75, and as you are zooming by troopers, you need to look down at the speedometer to make sure you are not going too fast. I bought new rims but kept the 18" for backups. Mileage is great for a car with 333hp, i get a mixed 23mpg, and I am thrilled by that. The original tires lasted 40k miles, so I thought i would upgrade to toyo t1R tires, and in 12k miles, they are completely bald. Stay with the OEM contis. so far no maintenance or repairs to complain about. GPS nav screen is bright and works great at night to drive with. I get a lot of looks while I am driving, with many teenage girls screaming for me, and older guys drooling on the car. All in all, i am very happy with the car, can't say much for the back seat, since it has been used twice, never by me, but feels roomy enbough for two adults. I have to say that there is not another car I can think of that gets the power, room, looks, handling, gas mileage, and overall driveability as an everyday car than my M3.

    Pros: POWER!!!!
    Descent gas mileage.
    LOOKs FROM EVERYONE....

    Cons: THE DAMN PRICE I PAID

    Luxury And Performance In One! — It may not be as fast as the M3 coupe, but I always have the option to put the top down on a nice day. Car feels solid as a rock. Great during freeway runs.

    Pros: Fast enough for me....so far.

    Cons: Convertible top rattles sometimes...

    Extremely Overpriced And Very Low Trade Value — This car got me stuck next to the road three times... and before we sold it, had it's engine replaced. We lost about R30 000 on this deal.

    Pros: Looks, looks

    Cons: Overpriced

    The Dogs Dangly Bits In The Performance 4 Seater Convertible Stakes — The car has the ability to be a reasonably sensible family car but at the flick of the SMG and a push of the DSC and Sport button it can become a hooligans motor with the option of fresh air round the chops. Love it or hate it its still an awesome all rounder.

    Pros: That Engine , The looks , The Performance, The Noise at full bore, The ability to go everywhere sideways should you need to ; )

    Cons: Fuel consumption, running costs, bag of spanner noise when cold and the Kangarooing

    Truly The Ultimate Driving Machine! — This is a great car to drive and own. Having a stressful day? I jump in let the top down, and play heavy foot for a few miles.

    Pros: Acceleration and handling is quite impressive once you trust that it is going be underneath you once you punch the accelerator.  For a convertible, it is incredibly quite.

    Cons: Stepronic transmission timing lags occasionally on slow rolling starts just after braking.  Can be annoying until you learn to feel for it
