Pros & Cons of a 2002 M3 - To buy or not to buy!

It's finally time to pass on my '97 528i to my 16 year old (I've had her for 8 years!!) and I've fallen in love with a 2002 M3! It's a convertible with 59k miles and is in absolutely perfect condition. We got the dealer down to $17,200 which is an awesome price, but I'm struggling with practicality vs. fun We've also looked at other 3 and 5 series (my husband also drives a 5 series) but after driving the M3, it's hard to even compare!

I'd love to hear the pros & cons of the M3 that anyone has experienced. We typically keep our cars instead of trading them in so, I know I'll have my next one for some time and want to make the most informed decision I can. I know the sedans are probably more practical since I still have two kiddos to drive around, but maybe it's time for Mom to drive something a little more fun!

So basically, if you had to do it all over again, would you buy another M3?
