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
I absolutely enjoy my M3 sedan and probably will keep it until it is dead or I am. Yesterday I drove a Cerrara 4S 2010 and I would say it is very nice. Not sure it is nicer than my M3 but they are different. Today I will drive a Turbo 911 2008. Another different car. So i agree the Ferrari is in its own class. You do pay to play. Gotta know what you want.
