to be bang for your buck, hence the moniker of luxury
sports sedan/coupe. so please, the group trying to convince everyone that the m3 is not a "value-wise" purchase, you really are not convincing a single person, you are just getting others who already are in the confused state of mind to agree with you. a bmw was never a "value-wise" purchase. the m3 is no different.
Well for me it's not a money thing I had an 04 E46 M3 , 05 545i Loaded , 04 MB CL55 AMG and I still wouldn't buy the new M3 it's really not as special as it used to be it will be cool but not a whole lot better of a car like the E46 3 vs M3 .For that money I rather have a used M5 or something just my $0.02
