E90 M3 vs 550i vs M45

Hi Guys,

I'm planning to get a car. I can't make up my mind between these 3 models. As I know, the new E90 M3 (full-loaded) will be around $70k, 08 550i is $72k (full-loaded), and 08 M45 (full-loaded) will be $60k max. Tell me what you guys think. I need some opinions. Thanks.

Since your asking an M3 board I would think most people would say
"M3".............

The 550i is nice but is no "M". So unless you need the bigger interior I'd say no way.

While I do like some Japanese cars the M45 is not one of them- the styling, handling, exhaust sound and interior just doesn't do it for me...

E90 335i will hang with both the 550i and the M45, so those are out of the question. Just get the 335i and save yourself a boat-load if you are even close to actually purchasing either car.

You might want to add C63 to your list though.

i really do not understand how you can choose between a 3 series and the M45. they're completely different class. I assumed you were confused about it, so i picked 550i

it's a gorgeous car and is > M45
