I won't say to much, as I assume many of you already know about this car. It won Car & Driver's Best Handling Car Award in '97 for any car at any cost. Here are a few specs off of Fast-Autos about it, and I believe they speak for themself. This M3 strikes me as being the last one that shows quiet power. It doesn't have huge rims, big wings, air ducts or anything else, yet it manages to look aggressive and handsome. Good job BMW.

Never cared for the E36, and I feel this M3 was inferior to the E30 and E46 in terms of character, and certainly compared to the E46 in performance.

Why buy an unreliable, bland-looking E36 when you can get an E46 330i that's newer, better looking, and better to drive?

On top of all that, BMWs are for pricks. uncool.

Sure you can get a 330i, but its going to be more expensive and everything I've read on them say that they aren't better to drive, as far as handling goes.

Usually when chicks behave like assholes to you, that means you need to update your pickup lines wink.gif

Personally, I think the current generation M3 is the best one and the one before this was nicer too.

Definitely. The US spec M3 is a disgrace to the M badge. It should have been called 330i instead of M3
