It's amazing that while the M3 is completely outgunned here, it's still able to make you think for a second. The E9x is that gap right before you reach exotic cars like these. Perfect blend of performance and everyday utility. Not to mention somewhat being affordable (used cars prices are very reasonable for what you get IMO).
I'm a long long way to reaching that dream, but a 911 Turbo and some type of Italian sports car will be in my garage someday
