hey guys this is my first post here.
I am planning to buy a new bmw car in next month, I would like to choice one of 2007 model 530 i/xi and M3 couple.
I compared both car on bmw official website. M3 has more driving fun, more powerful engine, one of my friends is driving it too. But for 530, less power, but more options like head up display, more luxury. Am I right? I havnt drive either both car before, can anyone give me an idea about these 2 cars?

Go out and drive both of them. Personally, i'd take the m3. But, im a 19 year old punk. My dad would definatly take the 5 series. One isn't necessarily a better car over another, its just a different car, better for each person. You're comparing a 2dr sport(y) car, with a 4dr luxury sedan. Sounds like you gotta decide what you want first:D

(if you're gonna go M, wait a year or two if you can for the e90 M)

ooops seems no one suggest buying a new M3 recently, I've been asking few people, everyone told DO NOT BUY A NEW M3 at this time. 530xi is probably my final decision.

Any particular reason why you feel you want the 4wd? its a nice feature, but not really necessary for winter driving in the city.(at least i find it isn't necessary)

I do like the M3 alot, and undoubtedly turn more heads, either way youre a winner... If you have a family the 5 is really nice, AND has some great aftermarket parts... I see new e60's alot more than the m3's however, I never seen an e60 modded here....
