2006 BMW M3 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)
A blast to drive! V. fast, great handling (flat, responsive, predictable, good feel, slight understeer at turn-in which is appropriate for even a very fast street car), great braking, absolute performance and feel, instant throttle response, car communicates what it is doing, extremely accurate steering. A perfect balance of characteristics. One warning, watch out for concrete parking curb stops - they will scratch the bottom of the front apron.
Handling, speed, acceleration, steering feel and precision, responsive and communicative handling, comfort and reliability; clutch is very grippy, almost a competition clutch feel; stunning brake performance and controllability; interior is beautiful and comfortable.
For practical purposes, none. Yeah, the gas mileage is not great but who cares?
