yes the e46 m3 is beastly! but then again its BMW and because of that parts for the car are more expensive and need to be special ordered.

G35.

With the money saved, you can turbo-charge the boost-ready engine.

If it comes down to the Lancer Evo, go with an STi.

LongHairedHippy: Just let him die out. The odds are on that he won't reproduce, so the problem will take care of itself

They're pretty much parallel in ALL aspects of performance.

What it comes down to is aesthetic appeal -- which car looks better to you?

Either way, I'd debadge both cars and throw on a more subtle spoiler. Nobody will know what kind of car it is until you melt all four tires.

ok, first off you know you are gonna get more people here telling you to get the M3 cause this is a BMW forum. But still be happy you came cause we are gonna convince you to make the right decision. GET THE M3! Granted the repairs are expensive, if you have the kind of money to buy the M3 to begin with then you have enough to keep it running, plus its only a few years old, your not gonna have monsterous problems with it. Look up some stats to see how it performs, and there are plently of mods and cool things you can do to a M3. Plus, as stated before the ladies go for it, for the simple reason that we have those three special letters on our cars, B-M-W. Have a nice day.

PS: when you do go out and buy the M3 you are then legally bound to joining this forum and posting lots and lots of pictures for us to see.

def. the M3... the chicks love that shit. Plus, it is fast and can outperform the g35 on straights and twisties.

Well I think it would really depend on where you live. I had to pick personally I would go with the M3. I had a chance to drive my buddy Charles 03' 2 nights ago and I was amazed and also to be honost alittle scared, lol. The EVO VIII is also a nice looking car and handles execellent. The G35 is a sick little car handles great but not as well as an M3 and there not as fast either. Even though this is a BMW Forum I think I would go with the M3. Also Lexus is suppost to come out with an "IS430" I think is the model, look into that, I think its sick.
