    19in wheels just mean more unsprung weight and a harsher ride.

    Re: Bought an M3 instead of a V

    I traded my '02 M3 Vert for the V. A large part of that decision is my new son

    They are both spectacular vehicles, with somewhat different strengths.

    Congrats on the M3!

    One shock:
    BMW dealer to mount and balance 4 regular tires: $275.00
    Cadillac dealer to mount and balance four runflat tires and set the TPS's: $99.00
    In the BMW dealer's defence they probably import the tire air from the Alps.

    Thhhhhhppppppp!

    Actually Silver is an upgrade color. I love Carbon Black, but after having black cars for the past 6 years I'm sick of the maintenance and wanted something easy. The 19"s didn't improve handling in any way I could discern, and I don't like the way they look. I do however like the M3 CSL rim, but to be honest after taking the car to the mountains it has plenty of tire in it's current config. More tire would just degrade handling if what I have now it holding traction just fine.

    Of course this is coming from a guy that had 315s on his Trans Am

    Very nice!

    I did get rid of my grey E46 after less than 3k miles in favour of the V, but that is subjective and as some mentioned above hard to go wrong here.

    Enjoy!

    Shinkaze -

    Can't say I blame you for your choice.

    I don't have a V simply because it rocks - the 4 doors were a requirement. I think had they not been an M3 SMG would have been a nice choice for me as well.

    Enjoy

    Thanks so far I'm loving it. The only thing that sucks about the car is putting up with other BMW owners..

    Have to admit seeing that Video that Digital Pimp made of the Radix CTS-V is enough to make me consider an upgrade in the near future.....No! no! no! what am I doing...stop spending money on mods...sheesh!

    Gratz man, for me it was between the V and the M3. I could have easily gone either way, in the end it was the way the salesperson and the dealership treated me. In any case I would be happy in either car, I'm looking forward to the next M5 myself.
