If your dad thinks an m3 is too much just go a little older. An e30 m3 wouldn't be as much trouble for speeding imo but you could still have a blast in it.

There's a reason why some people call it the only real m3.

Well not really. IMO you get the same if not more compliments on a well maintained older car than you do a new one. Not to mention if it's an older car the people that compliment you will usually know what they're talking about.

Just my .02

ok,
no e30 m3
i personally think it's the most gorgeous car and its engine is absolutely delightful, but there's too much mantainance required ... i've met a guy with 1 and it was insane how much stuff he had to replace every once in a while...

for 41k you can buy the mother of them all -- 2001 -02 BMW ///M5!!!!!!!
prolly the sweetest car out there, and cheaper on insurance too
faster than m3, better than m3, roomier than m3

You're not talking about an s14 to s52 swap are you? the purists would be all over your ass for compromising the basis of engineering the s14 was originally chosen for
