I did not buy my Ferrari to be the fastest guy out there. But I can tell you the M3 is BORING BEYOND TEARS compared to it. And the M3 is a damned fine car.
And no way in hell is the M3 close to as fast unless you want to dump $20K-$30K into it. And as much as I loved the M3 V8 it is a mere shadow of the Ferrari V8.
So let's just agree that they are both great cars for what they are and leave it at that......Steve
Even if you dump $30k into an M3, it will never have the sexiness, passion, craftsmanship and heritage of a Ferrari. I love my m3 but I can tell you from my brief experience in a f360 spyder and f355 that F-cars are complete sensory overload! The texture of the leather, the smell, the sound, the paint and everything else.... It is really something to experience!
