What is the best M3 to date?

The BMW M3 is one of the best all rounders on the market today. Available in Saloon and Coupe form, the E92 M3 can frighten the life out of you on country roads pumping out in excess of 400 bhp through the rear wheels but it’s also perfectly at home on the daily commute or pootling around towns. This seems to have caused a problem – is the latest Munich Monster too accomplished that it has lost some of the ‘rawness’ of the E30 and E46?

I’m still partial to a bit of E46. The E36 had good power and handling but it was a bit too smooth and soft to be a real sports car. The E30 is one of my all time favourites and one of our users has this meticulously maintained example:

Which does make me run for the nearest copy of Top Marques or login to Pistonheads to see what’s up for grabs!

The last two M3’s I’ve owned are here:

E36 & E46 M3 Convertible

Yes, they’re convertibles and I have just been talking about the E92 loosing some of the rawness. So really we have a variety of sports saloons, coupe’s and convertibles for anyone to enjoy.

So the question is:

What is your favourite M3 and why?

The real drivers choice must be the E46 CSL.

Goodwood Festival of Speed 2007

The Festival of Speed, more commonly known as FoS is one of the most prestigious motoring events in the world. It’s not hard to see why with all the different generations of automotive heritage to keep all ages entertained and with the location by the famous Goodwood racecourse even the weather cannot ruin the picturesque hillside.

Mercedes-Benz unveiled there latest SLR Roadster in partner with Mclaren, Alfa Romeo showed off the stunning Competizione and as roomers have it the Italian master piece is already sold out before release. For me though, the best part of the day was seeing a Bugatti Veyron for the first time in full motion – truly awesome.
