Cars that look nicer than M3?

So I was thinking that we all (at least 99% of us) love our M3s. But if you were buying your car strictly for the looks of it, would you still buy your M3? What cars do you think look nicer than M3? Name 4-5, I am curious to see the list!

Here is mine:

Lamborghini Gallardo (A second hand one should be in the price limit)
Aston Martin DB9 (Hopefully a second hand one is in the price limit?)
Ferrari 458 (Not in the added price limit )


That's all I could think of for now!

Edit> I think people are right about the price limit, How about up to $100K - $150K?

I bought the M3 not only for how it performs but for how it looks.
When I look at it I personally love the lines and think it looks very aggresive.

The M3 is probably the nicest looking car on the street but the X5M looks more aggressive IMO.

+1 ..without a price limit, there are boundless cars that are much more breath-taking compared to our M3. Some cars you just expect to look better than the M3 purely because of the price.

Definitely need parameters or the result is obvious. With unlimited money, pretty much every M3 owner is going to lean towards exotics.

Honestly, in this price range, I think M3 looks the nicest! I can't think of any other car I would choose that look nicer than M3!
For some reason I really like the look of the old M6 too

Price limit added, Now my list doesn't work any more i guess! how about up to $100K - $150K maximum?

I'm with most of you guys... most Aston Martins are gorgeous. V12 Vantage is stunning. 458 Italia as well. I suppose for $150 you'd have to get a used V8 Vantage or such.

We are biased, although at its price I really do think the M3 is the best looking car. It's simple, elegant, classic yet modern, and aggressive all at the same time.

Maybe a GT-R. I think the insane bang for buck highly influences that decision though.
I've been at war with myself as to whether or not the Audi RS5 looks good. Someone once said it looks like a Camaro and now all I can see is a smaller version of it when I see one. Not sure what the price is though.
The 1-M is starting to grow on me with those ridiculous fender flares and wheelbase-to-body-ratio (yes, it's a made-up term).
The Viper is pretty damn sexy. The epitome of testosterone-overdose.
Fisker Karma is beautiful. But I don't know if it counts.

Ok, I'll shut up and give someone else a go now.
(first post ever by the way!)

Edit: Nevermind, I just saw ///M Ryder's signature and remembered how sexy an M3 can be
I really think Stefan hit the nail on the head with his statement: "It's simple, elegant, classic yet modern, and aggressive all at the same time."

Any aston martin, just pure sex. Too bad they aren't as good of a car as ours. The other I would choose is the gt3.
