All it took was one 5 mile test drive to realize this is a special car that lives up to every kudo the M nameplate has earned over the years. The 414hp pulls rapidly to the 8400 rpm redline and WOW, what music to the ears! There's NO car that sounds so perfect when running wide open down the Abaun! It's an absolute dream to drive with perfect balance and only a hint of understeer. I'm amazed at the usability and room in this vehicle. The interior is very comfortable and although it's a supercar I can still put the family in it to go cruising. The trunk is large and the interior volume/space is perfect for 4 persons. If you're looking for the ultimate car, look no more... the M3 is it!
V8 motor! The interior is very nicely appointed and roomy although slightly understated. The look of the car is sinister especially with the Alpine White and the carbon fiber roof... VERY SEXY! The car is an absolute dream and is simply hard to beat because it does everything so perfectly!
Being picky, maybe a little more gear than the 3.15 final ratio. 3.60 up to a 4.10 gear would turn this car into a monster and add some more torque to the ground yet would be usable/livable with the 6 spd manual or other transmissions BMW offers.
