I just bought a new, off the lot, M3 from a local dealership. My motive to buy was to own a more economical vehicle - i was driving an F150. This vehicle handles great. I got the sport package which comes w/ 17" wheels - it really grips the road. It performs much better than my needs, and also cruises on the interstate very comfortably. The external styling is superb, w/ a noticable euro-style feel to it. The interior features are also great, although just a step up from adequate. It has a super sharp feel and look when sitting in the driver's seat - all primary and 2ndary controls are at easy reach and visible. Overall I am extreemly pleased with the purchase.
Lo-prof. tires and wheels, side-sill extensions, tilt & telesoping stearing wheel w/ 2ndary controls in the wheel (std), bucket seats hold you in nicely, AT has manual shifting capability (std), inset circle head and tail lights ad personality and attitude
Can't think of any real improvements needed right now. For a fuel efficient daily driver I couldn't ask for more, really.
