A 2005 330ci brand new for 35,000 would you get that or a used 2003 m3 for 30,000, with 40,000 miles?
Can't decide!!

If you're ever in a position to get an M3, a 2003 model no less, then you have no choice .. YOU HAVE TO GET IT

Is there even a question to this? used
Buy the M3 now before someone else does. It is well worth the price for sure, especially a 2003 for 30 grand!

M3 all the way. Otherwise you will just be a 3 Series owner not an M owner.

BUY M3, but check the car clearly.

the BMW M3 is better at the straight but the AUDI S4 is better at the coner.

I have a 98 M3 and when i take mine in for service i get to drive the 2005 models. the 2005 3 series is great if you want JUST a daily driver. if you want performance then go with the M. i liked the 2005 3s but there is NO comparision to the Ms. I put those 3s through the paces and they are just lacking in the feel. suspension is much softer and the torque is not the same. the 3s are made to cruise in while the Ms are made for pure power and excitement. get the M!!
