S U B L I M E
After 13+ months and 16K+ miles, my appreciation of my M3 only grows in intensity. I have owned many nice cars but without a doubt – irrespective of price – no car has provided such satisfaction and keen delight. My M3 represents the perfect nexus of dynamic capability, purposeful aesthetics, and accommodating functionality. I savor the experience of pushing the start button – blipping the gas – vrrooom – and being transported by the guttural rhapsody of M Song to that sublime place where perception, road and machine become one – to live in the exhilaration of the M moment.
M3s are cool.
