C63 & M3 can be friends!

I had my first encounter with an M3 about 3 weeks ago but never posted about it. It was really cool!

I was on the 105 East transition ramp to the 605 South at night, and I see a pair of BMW halo-lights getting closer in my rear view mirror. By the way he was driving, I could tell he wanted to play. I figured it was a 335i (they like racing people, no?) so I gunned it on the onramp (See, a Benz CAN take a turn) and I flew up on the guy in front of me so I had to brake hard. So, the BMW then stays behind for a bit, then guns it and cuts into the other lane and takes off... and I see the rear and... WHOA, IT'S AN M3! So of course, I chase off after him.

We get onto the 605 and do a little high speed stuff, back and forth... his car sounds great. He doesn't even have plates yet and might even be in break-in! We were just doing some friendly back and forth, between two very fast German cars... dang, it was fun. We come up to each other as traffic kind of blocks us, and at the same time, we both roll down our windows and give each other the THUMBS UP!! It was really cool!

See, C63's and M3's can be friends.
If you are here, that is a beautiful M3 you have. I think it was Space Gray (coupe). Congrats on your new car. Sounds great and very fast too.

does the M3 sound mean like the c63? I love the way the c63 sounds...

Right now I am trying to score a deal on a 2008 m3 vert... otherwise I will probably go with the c63...

Such a tough choice.. Im in FL and have never owned a convertible, so really want to give it a try...

Mantis, I sincerely hope that someday, your wounded heart, obviously scorned by a "stupid" MB-driving female, finds a way to disassociate the two!

The M3 doesn't sound as mean, but it does sound really good. I honestly like the M3's sound better than the C63's, but I like the C63's VOLUME more than the M3's. But.... I think being loud suits the C63's character more than the M3. The M3 is tidy and polished, hi-tech and F1. The C63 is a tire-smoker with a bad attitude, less complex and sounds more Nascar.

Too bad I like F1 better!

I hope you get a great deal and enjoy the M3. The vert is definitely sexy, and you will be able to hear that exhaust quite easily with the top down.
