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.

Amazing Car - But Not For Everyday Use... — Absolutely amazing car to drive on the track. Amazing power due to lighter weight, but very twitchy on the edge... Caution should be taken when driving a BMW M3 CSL full throttle on a track...

Pros: Power, Handling, Go-Cart feel

Cons: Hard ride, Slippery on the edge

My Baby!!! This Car Is Hott!! — Aside from the only two negatives, driving in snow and expensive repairs, this car is amazing. It's 338hp makes it much faster than most cars out there. It accelerates instantaneously. One of the coolest features is the SMG, which allows the operate to drive the car automatically, or manually without operating the clutch. Considering the coupe bodystyle, the vehicle actually has great visibility. And, the handling is immaculate. Every crevice or pebble the car rides over, you feel. Also, the Harmon Kardon stereo and apple red leather interior is pretty nice. OK, I"ll stop going on and on about how much I love my car!

Pros: Handling, Acceleration, Appearance

Cons: Maintenance

Fast And Classic — I went for the 6-speed manual transmission instead of the solenoid operated thing. I've had it up to 136 mph (verified by GPS) and it still had top end to spare. Believe it or not, I've never gotten a speeding ticket in this car (but I just got one in my Grand Cherokee).

Pros: Engine, looks, transmission.

Cons: Oil costs $8/l, rear seat room elicits complaints from my geezer friends.

Perfect Track Day Car Out Of The Box. — SMG was ahead of it's time, but not fully perfected. This is a go kart and handles like it's glued to the tarmac. Not much more you can bolt on to this car other than a turbo or supercharger kit. There's plenty of power on tap without modifications.

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

Pros: This car has the engine that BMW should have put in all of the earlier M3s.

Cons: Buckle up this is a bronco!
