This is a car I would love to have after my Z4 M coupe. BMW did the right thing by reducing weight with an M model this time. And it looks a lot better than the regular 1.

This really tells you that the M coupe is for people who really know and enjoy driving, because different drivers WILL yield different results, very much like the 911s.
The 135 is a nice car, but it...

If its the same price, then of course go for the M3. 42k miles is nothing. Its a newer car. As for nights and days, I do not see why people say that. The M3 has higher performance, but its really...

I don't understand why people want such a long range (50 yds). What I do when I want the remote to have a longer range is to press the button when I have the key touching my chin. It works fine.

Its not necessary, but at the same time they are not necessarily "mutually exclusive".

And yes, real men do have to have some macho characteristic. Those girly men give me goose bumps.
