It's rear wheel drive, that's number one.(more fun per mile if you know how to do it) Otherwise I 'd buy a 350Z.

NEXT PLEASE!



EDIT: Bella, the E46 M3(in Euro spec which I owned a year ago) is MUCH and MUCH and MUCH faster than you think. It eats the 330i for breakfast anytime, it eats a average 996 for lunch and guys in (cheaper) Ferraris ought to watch out, also on tricky B roads.

If you get the chance, try a E46 M3. It's one of the best performance cars ever build.

E46 M3 was my only love I ever had (for a car that is)

Agreed. There is nothing on the road which offers so much in every area you would assess a car. Maybe not the best in any area, but so close in all of them that no other car compares, particularly when you consider what you have to pay for some machinery to beat it. E90 M3? I think it is a forgone conclusion.

The 3er is just a beautiful car and I'm glad I have one, otherwise I would have never found this E90POST. And now I know what heel / toe is... See you guys are making me smarter every day!

I've learned a lot on the different E90 forums. So you could argue that the 3er makes you smarter if not a little sexier. Been gettin some whistles and cat calls when I drive by from the ladies...

LOL, I don't think an E46 M3 Euro-spec is THAT much more powerful than its US brother. And the only Ferrari it'll beat is a Dino.

Shim, maybe the US and EU spec are the same(think so)
About the Dino, LOL again. If you don't know what you are talking about, let's make jokes alright?

No, a well driven M3 beats a F355 and a 360 needs to watch out too(the torque of the 360 too is rather in high revving, the E46 M3 has a throttle response Porsche and the smaller Ferraris can only dream about) Not easy to explain so no worries. I know most of you live in the USA so maybe it's about going fast on a straight road
And that's not what I had in mind
