    My Second E46 M3 — Nicest looking color combo for the M3 imo... Alpine white / Imola red. This 2006 is rock solid and tight as can be. The 6 speed manual is head and shoulders better than the SMG I had in my 2003. Bluetooth is a nice feature that's been added also. All in all, I really enjoy this car.

    Pros: Handling,  good looks,  quality,  and sweet revving motor.


    Cons: I don't get to drive it enough.

    Somewhat Edgy Car Catered Towards The Performance Oriented Individual. — It is a very tight package of performance and luxury. The engine and transmission are very sensitive depending on the transmission. This can be annoying to the average driver. I like it.

    Pros: Fast, tight chassis, controllable oversteer.

    Cons: Half of the people that drive it don't care about its performance. =(

    Bmw Just Can't Fail With Their Bread And Butter M Two-door. — While working at BMW I had the chance to drive A LOT of their cars, especially the E46 M3. This car, now a used vehicle for most purchasers, should be on the top of the list. The build quality is second to none. The performance is seamless. The 332hp I6 is still just as wonderful as it always was, delivering a thrilling exhaust note. Handling is perfect with 19" wheels all around, and a limited slip rear differential. I happen to prefer the regular 6 speed transmission, but the SMG on these cars isn't bad either, although totally impractical for the street. For the price, this car delivers prestige, luxury and performance in spades.

    Pros: Great engine, well appointed interior, excellent handling, sexy styling

    Cons: SMG totally impractical for street use.

    Bmw M3 — The tight suspension exposes every crack, crevice and stray pebble in the road and the race-tuned transmission's sensitive clutch takes some time to get used to. Big brakes quickly bring the heavy M3 to a standstill from 60 mph, but can make parallel parking a head-jerking ordeal. Once drivers adjust to these quick reflexes, it's immediately apparent that the M3 is one of the finest and most fun high-performance cars on the market. It's so good that you might even create excuses to run errands or make an unplanned trip to a friend's house more than an hour away.

    Pros: Everything :)

    Cons: Nothing

    Power Ranked 2007 Volkswagen GTI 2.0T Coupe worse.
    "The bmw is simply a quicker machine "
    Cargo Capacity Ranked 2007 Volkswagen GTI 2.0T Coupe better.
    "the GTI has more space than the M3, due mostly to the ability to lower the back seats which converts the entire hatchback to a nice sized storage space "
