Best sports car for the money
By JeffM on


2003 BMW M3 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Compared to sporty sedans (Audi S4) and
traditional sports cars (Porsche 911),
the E46 M3 has all of the performance of
the latter with very few compromises.
The S4 is a great choice if you NEED
four doors, but otherwise, the M3 is the
choice for serious drivers.

This car is the real deal when it comes
to performance, and yet it's comfortable
and easy to live with. The trunk is
usable and you can even put someone in
the back seat without feeling guilty.

The M3 is always fun the drive, and
never beats you up, unlike some
harder-edged sports cars.

Best Features

The motor is simply incredible. It defines the car. It's not a torque monster, but it's very flexible and loves to rev. The sound is unique and intoxicating.

Worst Features

The Harmon Kardon stereo is lacking, and the door panels rattle with even moderate bass from the speakers.
