I am a recent purchaser of an '02, M3, SMG Vert....got it with a hardtop and and an xtra set of wheels for $16,9. Sometimes I just jump in the car and take off for the lake. It is that much fun to drive! I had an S2000 before and while it was, and is, the best thing Honda ever built, there is simply no overall comparison. The Honda would corner like it was on a string...but the M3 does it with 2 people and a full set of golf clubs, luggage etc. AND you can carry 2 more poeple--- if you have too!
Now all I have to do is learn to drive it. It is currently faster than I am. Racerman.
