Miss my M3 and I want back in...

Of all the cars I have ever owned (and there were a lot...see My Car History ) I miss my e93 M3 the most. It had it all, looks, performance, ability to hold the whole family, comfort, etc. I even still have some carbon fiber stuff from my 2009 and the wind blocker ready to be recycled.

I traded it almost a year ago and now I want back in.

I would give up one of my current sports cars (although I don't want to) but I think I need to do it.

Of course I have a spare stock exhaust to do my exhaust modification!

I noticed some new colors available. I am thinking a blue this time or metallic white, hmmm interesting.

But it drives so awesome. Better than the F car (although not as cool).

Is there a way to see what those special colors look like? I am sure no cars are yet available to see.

How do you like the Boxster Spyder? Thinking of getting rid of my M3 for one.

Dunno, probably the F car. That would be a heart breaker but a good financial decision.

Absolutely amazing. Just wish it had the power of the Ferrari

Anyone have any idea when the BMW "build you own" will have the 2012 model year for the M3?

You like the M3 more than the F430 spyder and Porsche 911 Turbo! You've had quite a lot of cool cars though....

Trade in the GTR or Porsche Boxter for the E93, but keep the Ferrari at all costs!

Wow you had an '09 smart car!

Other than the space, is there anything about the M3 you prefer over the boxster?

I never said more than the Ferrari. I still have that and it is the greatest drive of all. I did like the M3 better than the 911 turbo. Not that any other cars were bad (ok some) but M3 was just so right for me. I am appreciating that now.

GTR is long gone. Traded that for the first M3. Boxster Spyder may go but I wouldn't mind the cost savings of selling or trading the Ferrari. Of course I would cry to see it go.

Well the boxster is definitely a "real" sports car. Light weight and nimble. The handling is extraordinary. The steering is the best I have ever experienced. The chassis structure is second to none for a convertible. Very solid. Gas mileage is good.

The seats are only fair in the Spyder. I have the sport seats which are exactly the same as my 911 turbo. The are not that good IMHO.

The M3 seats are great. The engine is great. The gas mileage is terrible which makes the real problem being the range.

DCT is amazing. Much better than PDK (which is why I got my Spyder with a 6 speed).

Looks like you have a tough choice on what you want to get rid of over what you're looking to get!

Can't wait to see what you decide upon and some pics too!
