I think that we have a winner, and I think that many people live beyond their means as well

Could be that also with the car issue, could be for the love of cars but not in these forums from all the types of comments I've seen, so back to square one.

Who knows and really, to each their own as it's their own problem at the end of the day.

You all have a good weekend

Personally, as a M3 owner myself, I wouldn't recommend this car to anyone....the less I see on the road, the better...OP, get the 335!

Also, as an owner of both 2011 m3 and 335, I can definitely attest to the fact that they are truly worlds apart. It may look similar when looking at the dash from inside, but drive-wise...2 different animals for sure

I have to agree. I have a 335i (for sale). I was looking at Lotus Evora, Aston Martin Vantage, Carerra, C63, S5, and one or two others I can't even remember now to replace the 335. All of them were great cars, but all were a compromise (I have only one car, drive less than 5k each year) as a DD. One of the salesman had an M3 and suggested a test drive. I was essentially disinterested as I couldn't imagine it being much different than the 335i. Wrong. I came back thinking that the two cars couldn't be built by the same company. Needless to say, an E92 M3 is now on order with an expected delivery in September.

Not true. I owned both. M3 is just a better car.
