Just test drove e92 M3.. WOW

I've been lurking on thsi site for a while now and I figured it was time to finally register.. mainly because of my experience with the M3 today. I have been knocking around the idea of buying a new M3 for about 6 months now.. I decided to call my local BMW dealer and ask if they had any demos that I could take for a spin. To make a long story short; a twisty road and an allowed launch later I am absolutely blown away. I have been behind the wheel of some sick cars but this thing has it all. It's power is so smooth and rewarding you MUST constantly wind it through the gears.. the handleing is as soft or as hard as you like and when your on it.. it does what you think. Ahh wow! I am so in love!! Looks like I am going to be getting an M3 soon.. but damn.. Which color!

What did you think of the colors of the M3s that your dealer had?

Why are people saying speed cloth? You are buying a BMW without leather? That is just stupid.

Really, the performance of the new M3 outweighs the new 911s?

I haven't driven the new 911 but that isn't it. If someone is buying an M3 expecting to be the king of the performance hill they are in the wrong dealership.

The package that the M3 is can not be matched, by a 911, or anything else. It is the apex of symmetry.

It was a 6MT. Which is exactly the way I like it. I was looking at the pictures on this site for about 3 hours on Sunday. I think I have come to a conclusion...

Sparkling Graphite
Fox Red - extended
Every option.. inc moon roof. (yeah I know it weighs 45lbs more than CF)

Question: Could I fit chrome plated M6 wheels on it? I love the M6 wheels.

One thing - Sparkling Graphite is not available for MY2009, so you'd have to search and find an '08 on the lot.
