    2006 BMW M3

    Easily my favorite sports car

    Pros: Style and design

    Cons: Exhaust note

    I've owned a number of cars in my 25 years of driving... 3 being M3s. My wife wanted me to sell the e46 M3 coupe (manual) because it 'wasn't family friendly'. A year and a half later, I still couldn't get over it. I looked at a 335 sedan but couldn't do it for some reason.

    2006 BMW M3 - Coupe

    Pros: Amazing power and handling.

    Cons: Bit bumpy on bad roads (know the bad ones and stay off them, no big deal)

    The M3 is far above and beyond all my expectations. Be sure to get the Dinan racing chip installed, once you do this the acceleration and throttle response will blow you away. I was able to get up to 184 mph and it still felt comfortable. I know the saying is overused, but it corners like its on rails. Pick one up if you can, it will take you for the ride of your life.

    2006 BMW M3 - Coupe

    Pros: the engine

    Cons: HUH?

    Advice: life is short

    A fabulous machine. The competition package is worth every penny. The nav system is extremely helpful on a trip. The SMG transmission is a hoot and my wife and kids can drive, too. The 333 horses under the hood are always ready to run. My 2 children can fit into the back if needed. A dream car that works for me.
