    An Experienced, Smart, Fun Lady With Great Looks And Great Conversation — The good: Where to start, this care doesn't stop to amaze me. I just love it. An amazingly powerful engine that delivers more than 100 hp per liter without the need of forced air induction. The car is and feels very fast. Brakes are amazing. These are the competition package ones, so I don't know about the other versions. The suspension is extremely well balanced for comfort and sportiness. Again, this is the competition package which is a bit harder than the regular one. SMG transmission got some time to get used to but I love it.But that love doesn't extend to other manufacturers'. My Gallardo's eGear is not as good, in that one I would prefer a regular manual transmission. Looks: it is still a very elegant and modern look. The bad: It could lose some pounds. The navigation system sucks. The original mp3 player doesn't show the tracks names. Bluetooth only works with some Motorola phones.

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

    Pros: Almost everything

    Cons: Spoils you forever

    Bottom Line Fandabbydosa — performance 345 bhp 0 - 60 4.8sec i've had 182mph and its limited estimate 210mph de-limited build quality only the best appearance carbon black convertible grey leather, heated seats, full electric everything, climate control, sat nav built in, dvd players, smg tiptronic with 10 different gearbox and suspension settings and launch control (wow) cost- ouch over a 1200 pound for 4 tyres 57,000 pound new, 21 to gallon best if drive it like it made of glass 700 pound a service but nothing ever goes wrong. fun factor- becareful with the throtle it just sits and spins on the spot if ya floor it off the line without launch control. slippy and slidy great for drifting but watch the money burn from your tyres. tyre need changing every 10,000 miles at best driving normaly without the drifting.

    Pros: you need a damn good reason not to drive it

    Cons: avoid it ya dont like spending money cos it will cost

    Get One — Amazing performance when needed, hit the throttle hard with maximum setting on the SMG and you have a beast at your feet - put it into auto level 2 and it becomes a sedate little kitten ! Don't use the launch control too often, it will give you heart problems ! Service costs can be high, but that is to be expected on a thoroughbred car like this. Absolute fun to drive.

    Pros: Why not ??

    Cons: Never

    Subtle Supercar — The E46. What else needs to be said. Destined to be at classic car shows for the next decades... Well, after the kids stop screwing around with them... A terrific car. But maintenance is a bit costly. For sure. Enjoy!

    Pros: Scare your friends and family

    Cons: Maintenance cost

    Bmw M3 Csl Custom Build — I love this car! It's one of the best handling in-line 6 cars in the world ... I love how I feel driving it and how others feel riding in it! I know it's an eye catcher, and definitely M WORTHY since I did custom design and oder my baby! The only thing most people will not like is the stiff ride, which is what I would expect in a car that is an ultimate driving experience!

    Pros: Gorgeous, Fast, Great Handling, Custom Order Imola Red CSL

    Cons: Stiff ride, tires are not good in the snow.
