What are people saying about the M3

"The car was fine in the Comfort setting -- I felt bumps in the road and large potholes, but overall the ride was very good given the rough conditions of Chicago's roads. The stiffer Normal setting was just too firm, both on city streets and on the highway."

"One of the few truly awesome cars I've driven, the M3 nails both the sport and the comfort ends of the spectrum."
chicagotribune.com | talking about the vehicle's overall satisfaction
"The steering is pinpoint accurate and gives you a great sense of confidence when approaching hairpin turns or broad sweepers."
