WoW:eek: . What an aMazing car. My old boss just picked up a 2002 M3 Cabriolet in that dark blue colour. I went and saw it, and couldn't stop drooling over how beautiful it was. I've seen a bunch of E46 M3's before and gone to the dealer to look at them but I've never actually been in one for more than a minute or two. So I played and looked arounf in this one for like 30 min. He even gave me the keys to start it and get it warmed up before we went for a ride.*mw*

One thing that made this ride better than most, is that he actually races in a league on the weekends at tracks. ( dont know what kind but I know he's been in a few different classes)
So in other words he really knows how to drive. He went to pull on the highway and went onto the onramp so fast I though fro sure we werent gonna make it. Turns out the guy decides to pretty much drift the whole on-ramp:eek:

I didnt actually drive the car but all I can say is good things about it. I thouhgt maybe I'd get let down cause I look up to that car so much but I was a great ride and car. Awesome handling car.

....and I've heard the Coupe is even a bit better handling and faster 0-60

EDIT: He also has a Ford SVT Lightning. He said he'll take me for a ride in that but said it's equally as fast just doesnt handle as good. LOOKS sick though. Especially for a Pick-up truck

Got to drive a friend's 2002 M3 last year at Shannonville for a few laps - awesome engine, and feels very balanced and stable through the chicane. Only gripe are the long throws of the 6 Speed Manual - must have a short shifter IMHO. Hope to drive it again tomorrow at the annual event:)

Finally you wake up... and see that BMW also make fast cars ! :D

I think a new M3 CSL is better than the 2001 GT3..

I work at Carline Muffler Off Ontario St. But the guy who has the M3 is at the Petre Gas station off of Victoria Ave. in Vineland

I was at Shannonvile yesterday with the M3, was amazing, had some push at the start but fiddled with the pressures and got rid of it. Great car on the track.

I drove an auto 350z and was impressed. Of course I am 17 and have not driven many cars. I like the way you sit in the 350z. I love BMWs bu tI think my next car will be a 350z amnual with either a s/c or twin turbos.

I plan to keep my 84 318 (soon to be DOHC 325i) forever as a fun car.

The m3 has some more power than the 350z and I love the raspy sounds it makes!!

HAd to be a fun ride. I drove the 350z with a 6.5 foot sales man. He made me stop so he could buy cigarettes, I told him I late brake, after he told me to open it up!

Migs, I could go for once a month. I had a blast. We should try Mosport next time, its very different than Shannonville.
