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!!!
