In their own words

The M3 is a fantastic ownership proposition if you enjoy a bit of theatre when driving. My car is manual and having owned it for nearly 4 four years, I feel that I have control of the car at all times. If I want more power, I drop down a gear. If I want to drive smoothly around built up areas I short shift. The build quality is excellent, the exhaust note is a clean and throaty V8, that sings all the way to over 8000 RPM. Of course the fuel consumption is high but that is to be expected. The car as a coupe has more than enough room when judged in the correct category, and the boot fits plenty of luggage, plus the rear passengers can achieve adequate leg room, unlike other performance coupes on the market. The front seats are endlessly adjustable and comfortable. If you buy one, look for ALL the service history, check out the steering feel at higher speeds for reassurance. I put Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres on mine and they were wonderful. Pliant and plenty of grip. If you want a fantastic and tuneful sports coupe you will not be disappointed. Forget the fuel bill, look for a dry road and have some fun.
