If you have asked it and gotten answer before why post it again.

epacy, you have a serious attitude problem. lose it. you're not a moderator or admin, and until you become one, don't bother with your gestapo tirade on "re-posting."

The M is gonna be faster and sportier. The 650i is more for looks than speed. Its got a bit more luxurious feel and a softer suspension. It comes down to what you want. The 650i is beautiful, however I see it as an older mans vehicle and not a twenty year old which I am.

Have you driven both an M3 and a 650? You haven't, you should. Only then you'll be able to tell. Handling/road feel would be the major difference for me. If that's not a big deal for you, go with the 650. If it is, then obviously the M3.

While the 650i will have a relaxed but firm drive and from my own experience it certainly turns heads. The ultimate would certainly be a M6 but I don't currently have the financial means to acquire it.
Thanks
It sounds like you are making your decision on which car to buy based on which one will turn the most heads.




In which case the M3 will be wasted on you. Get the 650i.

Ah, so you would have no problem with the same question being asked over and over again in new threads?
Just wanted to make sure...

Unless you actually like 3 series better than 6 series

any M series is the best BMW you can buy. There isn't a car under 80k that is more fun to drive than an M3 IMO, as well as look as pimp. It's the complete package and I have never complained about my M3

It's immature and pathetic comments like this which really make me wonder why I bother to come on this forum.

There are some insightful and informative posts now and again, it's just a shame there are so many seemingly 13 year old's going through puberty on here.
