I've driven my car to Whistler and Seattle before...very fun to drive on long trips!

Insurance for the M3 for an N driver will be costly, guaranteed.
my 350z insurance was 3500 a year, M3 would probably be 4 5grand eh?? G35 sounds awesome haha well if you recommend it ill keep my eyes on G's. i just wanted the extra seats so that i can bring a 3rd person if i needed it.

Lancer Evolution 9. But you gotta import from the states. Now that will turn heads just because there are so few.
I would love an evo9 but they are too hard to obtain. The dark grey evo that was being sold on here was beautiful but 31gs was a bit costly and it was already sold haha.

i guess i should just wait it out for a nice G35 to come along, ive been searching high and low but i cant find any worth buying. i was just getting really anxious to get a car, feels wierd living without one. Oh yeah does anyone even know how much an M3 would cost for an N driver? i heard the insurance is as expensive as it gets on those cars, thats what makes me second guess them. the 350z was already expensive to ensure i cant imagine
E46 M3's were about $2700-3000 I think? they were quite expensive to say the least..

yeah sorry thats what I meant. Even base TL is a really good looking car. Their nice, the TL-S is even nicer. But I would still rather have a G35. You can't beat that exhaust note

Can't go wrong with a G but to be honest the back seats are there but don't expect much out of it

I wouldn't go M3, very expensive to maintain after 3 years. G35 seems to be the way to go.

agreed, the exhaust note is amazing. dont even need music when u got that

thanks everyone for your opinions, M3s are definately out of the picture now because they are too hard to maintain and pay for.

The only E46 M3 you're going to find for under $25,000 is a 2001 or 2002 and I would stay away from both years.

Just got a 335i M-Sport
Not a head turner, but very comfortable and the driving experience is amazing.
It got all the power you need starting at 1500rpm and seats 4 people comfortably

Sport/M-Sport pkg seems to make a big difference in terms of driving experience.
