Analog, Vicious, Unflappable. —

One word. Visceral. The engine in this car, the S65 V-8, will keep you coming back for more and more day after day. The journey to redline (in my car 8600 RPM) is unlike any other road car Ive driven. Above 6000 RPM the intake noise and steadily increasing ferocity of acceleration will leave you breathless and a bit scared. Like pistons are going to shoot out of the block if you dont stop! Are there faster cars out there with press you in the seat torque? Absolutely. None of those vehicles will hold your attention for month after month, year after year like the E9X M3 will. Points to note: - Mine is a 2008 M3 6MT. I have had it 2.5 years, put 11K miles on it and put about $2700 into repairs.- it is amazingly satisfying to drive on back roads and open highways. Handling is predictable, neutral and rewarding. Braking is instantaneous and adequate. Intake sounds remind me every, single time why I bought it. - In my humble opinion, this car does exactly what is was intended to do and nothing more. Dont believe the hype or criticisms and do your own research (and driving). You may hate it, you may love it. - My recommended options: Get M-drive - it permits driver adjustment of steering speed, throttle response, suspension setting and stability control. If you like music, get one with the individual audio system. It generally lacks low-end response, but mid and highs are clear enough for my amateur ears as well the sound-stage and imaging make me happy. - Get the Dual Clutch (DCT) if you plan to track it, otherwise the 6MT is the way to go for daily driving.

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

Pros: V8 engine and high-revving nature, solid build quality, addictive engine intake sounds, great visibility, decent utility (4-doors), good brakes (for street use), beautiful and proportioned lines, high-quality leather, neutral turn-in and mid-corner handling, M-drive functionality, shifter-clutch smoothness (even in heavy traffic), seat comfort and adjustability, individual audio sound quality (except for low-end)

Cons: Leather durability (pre-mature wear), plastic trim (finish peels), individual audio lacks low-end response, having to deal with inept BMW dealers for repairs, steering feel and lack of feedback (during street use).  The nav is archaic, but I knew this when I bought it...

Track Car For The Street And Without The Usual Compromises — Great car and a blast to drive. With the nannys on this car will make the average driver great, but with the nannys off you better know what you're doing. Great overall quality and very worthy on the M badging.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great balance and overall performance

Cons: Bad on gas and not family friendly
