know something about your cars before you wrap Porsches around trees! or give them to me!!
For the guy who was thinking about driving around city keeping the car in 2nd or 3rd... learn manual on a cheaper car, then get the M3... then take tons of driving school. If you really want the E46 M3. Really I would sugget you get something with a little less power (E36 M3, or even less power... AE86 Corolla GTS ideally- really! truest driving FR car ever), but in FR (Front engine, rear wheel drive) so you learn its quirky feel compared to the FF cars.
Safety is the number one concern... for you and even more so for other drivers. Please know your cars and drive them lots and have fun... Good luck!
Unsafe at any speed? In the hands of some, yes...
