This is a wonderful car. I compared it to other similar cars in its class (Civics, Jettas, Golfs, Subarus, Corollas) and the M3 stands above all of them. I am elated to have purchased this car!
Interior lay-out, style, power, sportiness.
I'd like to see better factory tires (Goodyear Eagle RS-A are poor in snow and NOT high-performance and all-season radials). The trunk door does not pop open far enough (1/4 inch - had latch replaced, still no improvement). Average mileage so far - not as advertised.
