M3: BMW's Sportiest Sport Sedan

In the eyes of many, the BMW M3 is the quintessential BMW. Based on the legendary BMW 3 Series, the M3 takes BMW’s venerable sport sedan to a whole new level of performance. Far from a marketing gimmick or the kind of “sport package” that really amounts to a spoiler and some extra body molding, an M badge indicates a serious performance car.

In the case of the M3, it represents a 3 Series that has been given a lot more power, larger wheels, a more aggressively tuned suspension, and, this year, a set of brakes befitting a race car. All this comes wrapped in BMW’s classic styling and workmanship, inside and out.

If you’re in the market for a performance car with four doors, you should consider an M3. Even if you were looking for a true sports car, the M3 would be worth considering. Its combination of acceleration, handling, and all-around fun are difficult to beat.
