So why not an M3? I love the blue. I love the wheels. I love the overall looks aside from the fender vents. I don't love the massive brakes or the DCT. I had an M5 with the V10 and flappy paddles. The best way to describe it was a Lamborghini inside the body of a fat sedan. It wasn't exactly comfortable and it wasn't exactly a sports car. Mind you an M3 is far more athletic and makes a fine track car. But I prefer a good street car for the street.
