Overall:

For me, this is one of those instances that I refused to let the opinions of others deter me from my own instincts. This is the driving experience I wanted. This is the look, feel & audio note I wanted. It’s not the fastest car I’ve ever driven but I can make it much faster if I choose. The feel of speed is so subjective anyway. It’s my own perception & experience I put out front, and all of those itches were scratched.

Ultimate Driving Machine — I like the handeling of this car. Three stages of suspension stiffening is plenty to cover your ground. I like the power button. More sensitive throttle response. Plenty of DCT control. Love the rev matching. Steering is tight. It's a race car for your daily commute

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Beautiful design. Aggressive. Innovative.

Cons: None

So Far Im Loving It! — Great fun to drive, Handles nicely. Kind of heavy compared to my 996, But it is bigger. I love the looks, quiet when you need it to be an loud when you want it to be. Very Comfortable fast Car. GAs milage not so good, but I knew that going in.

Pros: Fast Car with Space!

Cons: None so far.

Fun Of Driving — A car with 400 HP and good suspension can be full of driving fun. Engine sound is also fascinating. Of course the fuel consumption is not very beautiful because it's 4.0 liter and the maximum torque will only appear at high rev.

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

Pros: Full of power and driving fun.

Cons: Fuel consumption

Engaging Performance! — I like almost everything about this car. The manual transmission mixed with excellent power and handling make it the perfect mid-size performance vehicle. It is very daily driver friendly, unlike the more adggressive sports cars i have owned, Vipers, Corvettes, Porsches and Ferraris.

Pros: The BMW M3 is the standard setter for mid-size cars. There is no other high-revving manual performance car to compare in my opinion. The feel of the engine's delivery of power is superior to most cars I have driven.

Cons: There are very few thing I dislike on the M#. I might prefer a more spacious interior.

If You Could Only Own One Car — best car I've owned by far, not just by performance. Overall great package for every day use. Might be a tad pricey but it's well worth the price! Nothing can beat it's handling, yet you can use it as a family car with decent cargo space and enough room inside for 4 adults

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Best thing about this car is the power and handling, yet you don't sacrifice on cargo or number of seats

Cons: maybe the ride height is slightly low so sometimes I can bottom when parking in steep driveways

The M3 Is A Legend In The World Of Performance Cars! — The 2013 BMW M3 is a legend in the world of performance cars, giving enthusiasts everywhere a reason to own one. I always find it remarkable how the BMW M Division's engineers have made exceptional automobiles for the driving enthusiast.

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

Pros: What I like most about the M3 is how hard you can attack the sharp corners.  The impressive brakes help in this department, and once you come off of them, the M3 is a snap to throttle-steer at all angles.  The rear end is always ready to come back in line for your next obstacle.

Cons: Car's weight and marginal torque.
