I'd like to clarify that I presently do not have a stable of BMWs in my garage. I've revised my signature to reflect that my M3 is presently my only car and DD. (My wife drives a smooth Merc E350)

Having said that, I've always felt a slight trade off occurred when I traded my chipped 335i for my M3. Yes, the M3 is superior in almost every way, but it really feels FAT as I rev my way from gas station to gas station (though mileage is not a big factor for me.)

Fact is, I need a DD and I can only afford one toy at a time. The Cayman S, though tempting, is not in the least bit practical. The C63 is fat. I don't want anything to do with Audi's quattro drive.

BMW is the only game in town that does such a great job at designing very useable performance cars. I wish I could own them all!
