    xtoo_short20x- Have you test drove an M3 yet? A older guy at my school has one and he let me drive it, and its quite an amazing car. The smg gearbox is just freakin awesome. I can't say I have had a better experience in a car. I had an ear to ear grin the whole time i was driving the damn thing. It just accelerates like all hell, and it just pulls you back into the seats. And it handles so damn good like any bmw would. After driving this thing it is somewhat of a dream car. It is a overpriced for sure. Are you buying new/used? I was at my local dealership checking out 7's and gawking at the M3's. The salesguy said that they don't have any more coming in, and whats left is left, cause of the new 3 and stuff. sorry this is long winded, but if you haven't driven one yet, you need to. AMAZING car!!!

    If you go CRX, make sure to get a CRX Si model. Your brother will appreciate it much!

    Not the new ones.
    My friend has and old '97 M3, very nice. He's never had any problems with it
    yet, and it has about 85,000 miles on it. He has taken care of it though,
    awesome condition. He let me drove it a couple of times and I was hooked.

    I personally really like the CRX del Sol - the 206 is a relatively nice car, but the CRX still looks more supercar-ish.

    Someone offered me a Mazda MX-3 as well... which should I choose? I love the CRX, but I would like to get more opinions as well, especially considering this is a pretty old CRX (92-93), but in great shape.

    The moment I saw it in the Detroit Auto Show section of AutoWeek my jaw simply dropped. Very very nice styling.

    The new M3 should come in about a year or 2 as the new 3 series is set for this spring,(looks great). I have an 04 325cic, love the convertible but definately should have opted for more speed and a hardtop. After I first drove a Bimmer I was hooked. You have the feel of being able to control the vehicle the way you want plus it just is so fun to drive.

    As long as the M3 stays somewhat true to the old style BMW it should be fine.
    If they're going to be anything like the newest series like I mentioned above,
    forget it.

    As much as some people say the del Sol is a "chick car" the SiR version actually has around 165 hp if I remember right. That's definitely a pretty fast car.

    That's right, it's a del Sol.

    You seriously believe the standard 1.4lt 206 is better? The 206 is 75HP, while the del Sol is 160HP as far as I know.

    Any comments on the MX-3?

    i know the del sol has more power it's just that i've always hated the car. now doesn't the MX-3 have a V-6? i mean that right there should tell you to go for it. they have like 114 HP stock. a few basic mods and the thing should be a little menace. go for the MX-3, mod it a bit, put a mazdaspeed thing on there just for looks and kick ass. and i didn't know the del-sol was 160 stock... that's pretty wacky. i think i might be starting to like a car i thought i hated.

    The only time I saw that Alpha was in a magazine article (that I kept ironicaly) as a concept car. You mean to tell me that that has now moved from concept to production....and still has that beutifull interior and scisor doors!?

    I don't think that the American one can actually get 160 stock. That's just the SiR versions overseas. We normally get screwed on the performance market because most Americans believe that people shouldn't pay 25k+ for a small sporty type car like a Civic Type R or a Ford Focus RS.

    Heres pics of the next M3 supposedly. Found them at germancarfans.com There make a 4 door and a coupe like they did with the E36 M3. And a V-8 to boot. That car should haul. While not as nice as the E46 M3 imo, it still looks mean and fast.

    Damn, that new M3 looks to be very good.

    I'm also excited about the M5 and M6 though. V10, 7 speed (like an F1 car), paddle shifters and launch control. They're both F1 cars basically!

    M5






    M6



    I still dislike Bangle's designs, but they are slowly getting better.

    well that's slowly changing... slowly. but you're right, most americans are idiots when it comes to cars. then again i was never a huge fan of the japanese tuners to begin with. for the most part they just look too goofy for me. i prefer the long, wide, steel body of an american musclecar, or the just intensly fine-tuned speed of a european machine... or the quirky goofiness of stuff like the renault 5 turbo, or the AMC gremlin.

    Agreed. Bangles designs are SLOWLY getting better. I think at first the changes he made were very drastic and caught everyone off guard. And the new M5 does look awesome. I think with the body kit on it better compliments the front headlights than that of the normal 5. And talk about ridiculously fast. Whats cool is that it'll still blend in with everyday cars, but it'll smoke 95% of whats out there. Makes you wonder what mercedes is gonna do with the next E55, or if audi is gonna pump out a new RS6.
