So the real question is, what's considered a competitor to the M3? I don't like the M4. It doesn't look as good. I can't anything in the market that is comparable!
Great question. Very little answers.

What areas with your current M3 you want to try something new?

Are you looking for a better engine, more HP, torque, turbos, big cabin, vintage flair or better styling? Need more input.

If you want M/T there is nothing like it in the same price range. Otherwise, only C63. IMO if you like any other car more than your M3, you bought the wrong car.

So why are you driving an M3 now? Won the lottery or something?

You still have the best car....keep it. And if you can afford that new C7 corvette for fun, that's a great combo (unless you have snow)!

How about the CLA 45 AMG - allot of bang for the buck. Fully loaded with all performance and upgraded options is $65K...

0-60 mid 4 second range..

I'm also not a huge fan of the styling but I will say it looks way better than that in person. I saw it at the us open in NYC a month or so ago

Walking, a horse, a bike, wait can you rephrase that question? What isn't an alternative?

Disagree on the Genesis. Good car as a start for Hyundai, but for a bit more money the 370z or Mustang GT are way better cars. I would also recommend either 370z or Mustang over the TT-RS. The only Audi that actually has anything "sporty" about it is the R8, the rest of their lineup is a snoozefest.

Agreed. C7 Corvette is looking like an amazing car already. It just might be the next car for me after I'm done with the M3.

A new M4 which I hear will have a twin turbo inline 6 engine code name the S55. It is suppose to produce approx. 420"HP with more torque. A lot of people are praising the move back to the inline 6 although I'm torn between the v8 & the I6 it will probably get better gas mileage then the current 2013 and earlier M3's with V8.
