The M3 impressed me when it was bone stock. The variable geometry turbos in that car spin up so smoothly that the 'turbo' experience was lost. Sure the horsepower's there, but I was expecting this car to come with a punch when they spooled up. It just didn't do that.
I would add that it's still an amazing car! But for the money we get that same smooth rush of power from our C4S and saved about 20k.
Oh, and I agree that the interior is a little dated. That nav is HORRIBLE. And the stereo was an afterthought. We spent about 7k just to bring the sound up to par with what my E70 X5 had. It's not a cheap car to upgrade stereo components with the fiber optic MOST system.
