vega$$kier is an unknown quantity at this point
I am wondering if I should beef up my 2003 330xi with Dinan, etc or should I just save up and get an M3 October 2005. My 330xi now has 25000 miles on it. Any suggestions would be welcome...

M3 maintenance issues
SMG advantages/disadvantages
insurance issues
cost-benefit analysis
M3 reliability issues
New stuff for M3 in 2005
M3 handling vs 330xi handling (good and bad weather)

Thanks!

dont get SMG, get manual, period.

Get the M3, you get a whole ton more stuff from the M3, because just about everything is different and better. I think its a lot less hassle. id save and get the M.
