M3 has always been about the best of both worlds which requires great engineering and design skill to appropriately balance and COMPROMISE in the design. Don't care much if you blast me for driving my new M3 to Starbucks, the grins it'll give me on the canyons, twisties and track will be plently for me.
Hear, hear! Finally someone has actually SAID this...

The M3 IS a road car, albeit a high performance one, marketed to people who demand a host of non-essential extras in their cars, and who will never go near a track or any of the car's performance limits (though some of them will still brag about these things )

If you are not one of these people, fine. But it does not change the fact that you will be in the minority.
