: are racing.
: Honestly…….. I love BMWs and I think the new E46 M3 will be a great successor of the E36 M3...but what makes you people buy a M3 ( or looking forward to buy one ) since there is no real reason for a M3 in US unless you race or you just like to show-off. 90% of your driving occurs below 70mph…so what are the main reasons buying such a outstanding car which deserves the no speed-limit rated road or the Autobahn. I thinking about the E46 M3 too, but then I ask myself…will I be ever able to enjoy the car without having to go to races, looking out for cops….etc ??? This is no flame war....just wondering what others think !
: Thanks for comments/opinions.
: AC

nor do any other M5 owners I know. You just keep the V1 on and pay attention. If you never drive over 70mph you might as well get a Metro. This says nothing about how fun it it to nail it coming out of corners in an M car. If you don't understand you never will.
