If there was no ///M3 what would you buy?

If there is a model that's not listed then post away.
Just try to keep it under 100K.

I am not voting because it will never...NEVER HAPPEN!!! :mad:

Just kidding. My vote goes to Z M coupe since we don't know much about GTR, yet.
Until GTR comes out, Z M coupe has my vote.

I'd buy a 335i coupe and mod it with the extra cash.

Not the best list...

911 Carrera S, probably used.

Z4 M Coupé most definitely. The only reason I didn't buy it when it came out was the fact that a new M3 was on the way...

It's definitely the best handling and most fun BMW that's on sale right now. My only beef with it is that they could have modernized the engine for it... But that may just indicate that it will indeed get the new M3's V8 when the time is right (in 1-2 years from now perhaps), and it was financially more sensible for BMW to just keep producing the S54B32 engines for it for now, since the old E46 M3 is not for sale anymore and they don't use them up.

Best regards,

Jussi

My choice would probably be the C63, but it's not on your list of choices.

(want a smallish German sedan/coupe with a V8!)

I am going to trade my Evo 8 for the Evo X when it comes out (or a year after) and I'm going to trade my Z4M Coupe when the E92 M3 is out... sounds like someone here might be interested?

Wow, I don't know! I don't think anything on the list there excites me...I would not buy anything other than BMW, so I think that I would go with the Z4 M Coupe, followed by boost.

(And that's why SMG II is not on offer - at least yet.) On the other hand, they're the kind of track cars where their straigh six really is more approripate with manual transmission. Even much more fun, with their low curb weight and incredible cornering capabitlies. There are Porsches (Well, RUFs, that I'd go for before the Z4Ms, but not the Cayman S or Boxter S, no way. Those two are just incredibly overpriced if you want any decent options on them, and no amount of options can fix their biggest problem - they're slow! The bang for buck is seriously better with the Z4Ms. And the Z4Ms are still more fun to drive.) The Boxter (S) and Cayman (S) just seem to be the cheap'o Porsches meant for the mass market, and they have failed, IMHO.

Best regards,

Jussi

I would buy a used 2006 M5. What is not to love about 500hp and 15mpg?
