THe hype is long over. Not sure where these seller are thinking these cars will ever fetch over 20k with cars with 100 more HP for less and all of these cars modified to garbage at this point. Get the next generation car or M6 or anything else that wont draw the racer kid challenge from a stop light or on the highway at speed. THe honda crowd graduates to a Subaru then these cars , buy anything else and save you money and time

2005 Bmw M3 Competition Coupe — All-around great car. I love to drive it. Would highly recommend. The ultimate driving machine. I cannot wait to get another one of the E90 series. If you're considering getting one, I highly recommend taking the test drive it will put you over the edge for sure

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handling power style

Cons: Maintenance is expensive

If You Like Cars Or Bmws In General, Buy One. — SMG can make you look like a rookie driving a manual if you're not used to it. On the other hand, you can put cream and sugar in your coffee while driving much easer than a manual. Coupe feels more solid than the convertible.

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

Pros: Handles like it's on rails, will smoke most things in its price range.

Cons: Fuel economy. Definitely not a Prius.

Awesome Vehicle Under $25,000 — I love the handling of this car. I took it up to the blue ridge parkway a few months ago and was able to drive around 60 in 3rd on all but the sharpest turns. If you can find one that's a few years ago with less than 60K miles it is well worth the investment.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handles like a dream. Very fast

Cons: Speeding tickets

No Wonder Its Every Car Magazine's All Time Favorite Car — everything you have ever heard, everything you have ever read, everything, i mean everything is TRUE!!!!! very hard to pick out a flaw. amazing to drive, beautiful to look at, stylish, sexy, seductive. such a pleasure to drive. power is beyond satisfying. handles beautifully, stick shift, clutch feel and steering all live in harmony with each other. yes its expensive, even for a used car but its worth every penny. power never falls flat, stability at any speed in confident inducing, and the red imola interior adds to the sexual drive experience lol. i am truly in love with this car.

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

Pros: red imola seats, power, handling, looks, resale value, big money spent, big rewards given, m3 status is porsche's rival.

Cons: second cup holder is not useable with arm rest lowered. could use another 150 horsepower and torque, lol (ok being greedy with the extra power comment)

Best All-round Fun Affordable Car! — looks sexy, fast acceleration amazing build quality and most fun engaging car i have ever owned. the biggest downside about owning the car is definately the cost of maintenance of the car...it gets pricy when having to do the service intervals. Also it has to use a special type of synthetic oil that ONLY BMW dealerships have a hold of so they monopolize the price of that!

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

Pros: EVERYTHINNG

Cons: RASPY exhaust note, gas mileage, maintenance
