My mother said, "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all"

But really... if you feel you have to post a question like this on the internet....

I suggest public transportation, bicycle, skateboard.... while your cognitive skills are still developing.

Congrats on your new M3!

I had the same opportunity you did, deciding between them...even if the RS4 and RS5 were out..I would still have ordered my M3.

Once you are behind the wheel...you will not question your decision again!

Best of luck with your new M3!

have an 09 m3 on order....c63, is-f, rs4 all 4 doors.... i owned a 4 door 328 sedan and was looking for something sexier... also i wanted a car with a 6 speed manual...only cars that would fit that are rs4 (older car), s5 (a little weak) and rs5 (not here yet!).... so for now i am settled and satisfied that i've made the best choice.

I would be happy with any of those cars but I am glad I purchased the BMW.

All three are completely different cars. The RS4 is a light sedan, the C63 is a heavy sedan, the E92 is a solid coupe that out performs the other two.

Oh, and don't get a paddle shift. Real drivers rake the gears. DCT is for pretenders. Robert Kubica is forced to use it, but what would Fangio say? Push button transmission is for the 1968 Buick. And, as far as I know, Buick finished out of the points that year.

I can just imagine members of this forum saying that you should have bought a Mercedes or Audi or whatever.
Or not.
Perhaps you should ask the same question of members of Mercedes and Audi forums.
I am sure that they would all say that you did the right thing by buying a BMW.
Or not.

Uh, you are mistaken. You get the same free maintenance for 4 years from the other two manufacturers.

Check their website.
