I'm giving my Alpine white 03-330ci to my wife and plan to purchase another BM. I can't decide between the M3 and the M5:dunno: :dunno: I tested drove the M3 but it was kinda rough and the M5 is kinda too big for me. They both look:pimpin: and have supreme handling. Or maybe an SC430? They all cost pretty much in the same price range. Give me some advice.

I've had a Porsche 944 Turbo S (lots of HP mods) and 3 BMW's. I recommend you get about a 4 year old 911 S4, put some money into the engine ($$$) to pick up the HP and it is in a whole new level of performance over the Beamers.... Or for even more economical fun, there are some great 930 Turbos, you can get those fairly cheap, put $15K into the engine and suspension and you will have a fire breathing dragon...

I'd say.......M5. Even though the things is done in a year I would rather have the M5. I love my bro's 5 series and I would rather have a M5 over an M3, the thing is so pimp :thumbup:

test drove both and u can see my decision


The M5 i felt was really fun, but did not handle as tossable as the M3. Plus i feel the M5 looks extremely dated for this day and age. It has torque to die for... M3 is a tad faster and funner to drive IMHO

drive both...there is a clear difference in feeling you will get...do what suits your needs

J from J has the best advice and exactly what most people would say after driving both!

Comparing an SC430 to an M5? My sister drives an SC430 and I actually think it's a nice car, but forgeting opinions on the cars, they aren't even close in size, application, etc...either is a 4 year old 911? :dunno:
