M3 or 2012 328i?????

I know you must all think I am nuts because it should be a no brainer and I should pick the M3 (which is my dream car); however, the ones I am looking at are obviously from 2008 with over 40-60kms on it. I found the car of my dreams with low mileage and realized it was ok in price; however, it's in the states (I am in Canada) and it would pretty much take me an arm and a leg to bring over unless someone has some cheap suggestions for me.

Having said that I did find an M3 that was local and I am sure I could bring the price down reasonably to what I want to pay. I am just wondering if I should get a M3 even though it's 4 years old or buy the 2012 328i.

I am currently driving a Civic and I've had it for 9 years, so it's time for a change and clearly either one of these vehicles would be a huge upgrade for me.

I just can't make up my mind on which to get. Any thoughts/comments/suggestions?

Thanks Seth much appreciated. I figured that should be the choice I would love the M3 and you're right it's not very common.

This may be even a more stupid question but are M3's more inclined to road stops by the police if so I definitely don't want to deal with that. I am sure I'll get the car soon may be within 6 months or so, but I don't want to attract unwanted attention. I'll just have to wait and see.

Thanks again.

Anyone with a BMW gets unwanted attention from the police. Not many of them know the difference between an M3 and any other model except the SUV's. Get the dream car.....

Go for the M3... the 328i isn't very exciting. The 335i with tuning is really fast so that is something you could ponder if you're looking for a lower price.

You know that's a good question. I've never owned a BMW, so for me going from a civic to any BMW is a big step up for me regardless of what I get (no offence to civics of course).

I chose these 2 cars because realistically I should probably get the 328/335 but a dream car would be the M3.

I've weighed out the options and talking to a lot of guys that I know I am most likely going to go with the 328 or 335. The reason is because I am out here in Canada and insurance rates are extremely high, plus the M3 that I want - black/black, with Navi (if possible), sedan I can only find it in the states. Unless someone has other sites or locations that I haven't seen.

I realized by the time I purchase it, bring it over, pay all the taxes I won't be getting it for much.

Appreciate all the comments. One day I will get the dream car.
