Fair enough, but the Boss 302 outperforms the M3 while only lightening your pocketbook by about $45K for a properly equipped model.

However, the M car is an all around way better car than the Boss, only losing out on track or dragstrip - and at the gas pumps, come to think of it.

All in all, I think the current M3 may be the best all around compromise car that the planet has ever seen, while the Boss is more or less a one trick pony. It sure as hell is good at that (track) trick, though.

Agree 100%. The Boss is a great bargain if you're looking for something more dedicated. And the current M3 especially in a sedan is... well you said it, a great all arounder.
