"Could use a little more torque, but makes up for It with sound like a '67 Mustang. Last of the V8 normally aspirated Bimmers. By far the best value for the money out there. Double-clutch shifter is lightning quick, grabs rubber in first 4 gears. High revving fun."

Like any car enthusiast dream...

"I am a proud owner of a BMW M3 and I enjoy driving my vehicle whenever I have the chance. Starting off with the exterior of the M3. My M3 is white and absolutely love looking at from a distance and also when I walk away.....kinda creep some people off haha. Moving on to the interior cabin. Very nice black leather with the signature BMW stitching on the steering wheel. The navigation systems could use some work. First time users such as myself would have a difficult time unless you are technology savvy. This is my first BMW and I am very impressed with the styling, detail of the vehicle, the way it drives and it truly is the ultimate driving machine. The description of my driving experience isn't included in my review simply because you have to drive it to experience it yourself. Go test drive an M3 now what are you waiting for!?"

This is absolutely the best car I have ever owned!

"I purchased this car used in August of 2014 with 16,000 original miles. I have owned a 2004 M-3 and a 2008 M-3. This is by far one of the most exciting cars to drive that I have ever owned. The car is bullet proof. This is the last naturally aspirated V-8 made on the M-3 platform. BMW changing (in my opinion) back to the straight six cylinder was a huge mistake. This car is a 13 point Dinan equipped car. Nothing but positive comments about the looks, engine sounds and overall styling. Do yourself a favor, if you are considering this car.....just drive one. Not cheap to maintain or fix, but worth every penny!"

"I have owned each generation of the M3 going back to the original, e30. While the e30 is my all-time favorite, the e92 is a close second. When you consider how bullet-proof this car is together with how much fun it is to drive, you could make a strong argument that it is the best M3 ever. Either way, it is the last true M3 coupe and, in my opinion, BMW went out on a high note. The e92 will be a collector's item in the future."

"This is the 3rd BMW M series that I have owned. It is an amazing automobile in every way. The 4 door sedan design is both graceful and muscular yet very functional. The engine hums like a symphony and is very responsive. My car is a 6 speed manual which I totally love as it seems so integrated to the cars power and handling. It feels very solid and handling is very tight... and it is very fast! I keep it under control but it is so happy at higher speeds. Being semi retired and living in a car dependent area does pose a problem: It is a gas guzzler as I average 16 mpg. Therefore, I cut back on driving so I can afford gas This is not good as I usually drive at least 20 miles to reach various locations. My choices are to sell it and buy a more fuel efficient BMW (328i) or buy a used fuel efficient daly driver. The decision is very difficult as I love my Silverstone/red leather M3 and it's hard to let go!"
