its more of a weekend car then a commuter, a m3 is not made to sit in traffic, its made to be pushed to the limitz
I drive 60 miles a day, its not that I'm in traffic for all of those 60miles, I'm just saying that when and if i do run into traffic on certain parts of my commute, it would just suck to have a manual... I am aware that having the manual would be a blast. I also know that that would be an added expense to have to replace a clutch every so often, besides, like I said before, I'm not too experienced with a manual, having had to have my g/f show me the basics on her '89 VW.
And by the way, why shouldn't an M3 be a commuter car. The whole point to commuting is transportation. Why should I have to settle for some shitty little Honda or other asian import for my mode of transportation. I currently have a Mercedes 190E2.6. It's a highway car, I don't want to replace a German peice of machinery with one that is made cheaply. I want quality, I don't want to waste my money on something that will just be a peice of shit... Now if your telling me that an M3 CAN'T HANDLE COMMUTING, well, I guess I'll have to go back to Mercedes or perhaps even a VW.
So in other words, an M3 is not really worth getting then if you say that it is a mere weekend car. Let's put down the M3 then why don't we, since it can't handle a little commuting.... ::sarcasm::
Now.. back to the post at hand... is the M3 that I mentioned above worth getting... what's involved with an inspection... is it the same as a tuneup? Is it expected to occur every X miles? Should I look elsewhere for an M3?
