M3 all the way!

I know they're built on the same chassis but the M4 (while nice), the exterior shape looks disproportion/odd. The convertible looks even stranger

Love the new M3 and the mineral gray makes it look spectacular!!
I think the proportions of the M3 are way better then the M4. The M4 reminds me of the previous generation 6 series.

Ahhhh...the process? Pretty simple.
Go to your local tire store and get a non-RTF tire and while your there, have them diagnose the clanking noise.:)

We got a white 328xi wagon, as well. You'll love the practicality.
